Corwin Heatwole has been cultivating a love of farming since childhood. Now married with three children, Corwin owns Nash Hill Farm, located on a fertile patch of riverside land in Fulks Run, Virginia. Corwin believes the farm life is the best choice for his family, and he believes farming for Shenandoah Valley Organic is the best choice for farmers and chickens. He values the freedom SVO affords their farmers to make decisions specific to their needs, and he appreciates earning higher compensation that more fairly reflects the hard work associated with raising healthy birds. Each day at Nash Hill, Corwin and his children walk through the tranquil farm, assessing the comfort and happiness of the chickens, feeding them and checking equipment. After a long day of work on the farm, the family loves to fish and camp by their pond and appreciate the peaceful life they’ve built for themselves.
