Welcome to ABC acres!

ABC acres is a permaculture farm in the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana. Sustainable food production, healthy living systems, and ecological design is what we are all about. Our cattle, chickens and pigs are out on open pasture, eating, resting and living the way nature intended.

It’s a mixture of annuals and perennials intertwined with pollinator species, companion plantings, and multi-structured food forests.
