WHO WE ARE
WE ARE DAPPLE FARM
We are Moira and Graham, a wife and husband team working on a small scale farm dedicated to growing organic produce, rescuing and fostering animals, crafting goods, and offering creative services.
We have a rotation of rescue animals, two horses, three dogs, and two pigs, with the goal of growing our animal farm. We are committed to our animals and providing a sanctuary for them in harmony with nature.
Moira grew up in Virginia where she developed her love for animals, but specifically horses, at a young age while riding at Woodlawn Stables. This unbridled affection has led her to become a devoted rescue volunteer, vegetarian, and compassionate foster mom.
Graham spent much of his early childhood on his family farm in the Poconos where he roamed the woods and pastures, helping his great grandfather with daily chores, and grew his love for animals and passion for farming.
WHAT WE DO
FARM THE GOOD LIFE
Our mission is to grow delicious, naturally grown, and chemical-free fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers while respecting the land and ecosystem on the farm. Located in Lovettsville, Virginia, the farm is committed to growing organic, nutritious, and unusual produce for our friends and family, to be used in our home brewery, and eventually at our local community market.
RESCUE THE WEAK AND THE NEEDY
"Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked." Dapple Farm rescues, rehabilitates, and re-homes abused, neglected, and abandoned dogs as well as farm animals. Working in cooperation with HART and other local organizations we provide our service to animals in need in Virginia and beyond. We rehabilitate providing the veterinary attention, nutrition, training, and maintenance care to each animal who enters the farm. While fostering, we network to find loving and forever homes for each animal based on the best match of people, personalities, and facilities. We are working towards becoming wildlife rehabilitation certified and opening our facility to any creature in need.
BREW FROM PLOW TO PINT
We also operate an award-winning home brewery with big dreams, making beer one keg at a time. We are founded on hard work, creativity, locally grown and sourced ingredients, and with a commitment to the community through local charities and rescue organizations. We partner with friends, artists, crafters, farmers, and other local businesses that share the same mission.
We chose the name of our farm as the inspiration for our brewery, our horse "Watson", a wild and crazy dapple gray thoroughbred. While we are serious about crafting solid beer, we pay homage to his playfulness through experimentation and ingenuity.
Be nice. Work hard. Stay humble.
Words we live by. It is what we believe in and how we operate. By doing so we make connections, experiment with new ideas, collaborate, get inspired, and ultimately discover creative solutions. Executing those solutions is something we do with great pride and craft.
We specialize in illustration, branding, packaging, goods, lettering, and typography. Our creative work focuses on conveying simplicity and sophistication through vintage-inspired design blended with modern elements.
