Hiddendale Farm is a century old, 5th generation family farm homestead located near Turtle Lake, North Dakota. Operation of the homestead began in the 1920’s. During the 1920s through the 1940s, Hiddendale Farm was a state-inspected nursery that specialized in raising conifers and lilacs. Many of the original trees from that era are still living today. Hiddendale Farm has a long history of also running a dairy farm until 2012. Small grains and forage crops have been raised throughout the years and are still being raised today.
Richard and Sharon Philbrick have semi-retired. Their son Glen is in the process of transitioning to farming, but also teaches full-time.
Hiddendale Farm is still standing strong and is as vibrant as it was a century ago. Today, a small herd of milk cows are maintained along with range cows. Our animals are members of the family. The pastures are transitioning to cell grazing. Portions of the cropland are being transitioned to farming organic product. Hiddendale Farm provides herd share, organically raised and gluten-free grains, such as Quinoa, Amaranth, Hulless oats. A wide variety of vegetables and flower gardens can also be found throughout the farm. All of Hiddendale gardens are organic by default. We continue to practice regenerative and sustainable methods of production that can and will be utilized to ensure the viability of Hiddendale Farm.
