Foothill Farm is a small family operation located in St. Ignatius, Montana. Run by Julie Pavlock and Ben Ferencz with help from their daughter Evelyn, and Julie's parents Tom and Jan, they produce vegetables, hay and meat for their local market.
Along with the vegetables they raise for the Western Montana Grower's Cooperative, they also attend the Farmers Market in Missoula and sell to area restaurants.
They are Western Montana Sustainable Grower's Union members because they believe strongly in sustainable farming practices and bringing food to their local community.
On the farm, they implement composting, crop rotation, cover cropping and other organic practices. One of the most important parts of their farm is the livestock integrated into their system. In order to feed their animals through the winter, they raise hay and maintain pastures during the growing season. They grow a diverse amount of vegetables, focusing on garlic, tomatoes and squash.
