Galen Iverstine of Central Developed Love of Farming

KENTWOOD — Galen Iverstine grew up in Central and graduated from Central High School.  But he has given up the “big city” ways of Central to pursue his love of farming as owner of Iverstine Farms in Kentwood in Tangipahoa Parish.

Iverstine is a familiar face at the Red Stick Farmers Market in Baton Rouge every Saturday, offering his farm’s Berkshire pork, broilers, and eggs.

Iverstine said, “We produce high quality, all natural foods.  We consider ourselves as stewards of the land driven to develop sustainable growth techniques.  We seek transparency in all that we do, through responsible farm practices.”

His Heritage breed pork is raised on pasture and has no antibiotics or hormones added.

Iverstine has a Facebook page called “Iverstine Family Farms.”    The page is filled with photos of his farm.  The farm is located at 2973 Newman Road, Kentwood, LA 70444.  Phone 225-276-0207.
