About Us

Sejah Farm of the Virgin Islands was established in 1998 and is owned and operated by Dale and Yvette Browne. Sejah Farm’s primary business is raising Boer Goat and Boer Goat crosses for meat and herd improvement. Over the years, Sejah Farm has diversified and added sheep and crop production to its farm enterprise. Diversifying our farm is a means of having more than one source of on farm income and providing the finest possible quality of local meats and produce available for our island community. 

Sejah Farm is located on the island of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands – the largest of the three sister islands, which include St. Thomas and St. John, territories of the United States Virgin Islands. Sejah Farm is situated in what we call the ‘farm belt’ of the island. We manage fifteen acres of farmland, consists of eleven acres that are used as grazing for sheep and goats; three acres that are used for vegetable crop production; and three-quarter acres used for poultry production. We raise Boer Goats and Boer Goats crosses for sale, local fresh meat, and vegetables for local and off-island demands.

We are advocates for the development of our territory agriculture resurgence, environmentalist and conservationist, local Food advocate: for developing a local food system, food security and sovereignty, provide agricultural technical assistance, seminars, education, training, and consultation to farmers and the community.

It is our mission to produce the finest quality raise meats (lamb, goat, and chicken) and organic vegetables in the U.S. Virgin Islands to meet the local market demand. We expect to exceed our customers’ expectations in quality, delivery, and cost through continuous improvement and customer interaction.

The U.S. Virgin Islands imports 97% of its raw and processed foods, which account for over $400,000,000 imported annually. Educating our community on the need to buy locally and eat fresh foods is paramount to us at Sejah Farm. Our territory food soverieghty and security is one which is dear to our hearts. We will continue to advocate and educate farmers and our community to grow, buy, and eat local meat and produce.

Developing a local island food system is a challenge. However, it is one that we at Sejah Farm are willing to take on since it is a part of the island’s agriculture resurgence. The territory’s agricultural industry has been without any significant governmental involvement for the last 56 years and it is now slowly changing. Additionally, the need for our community to encourage our farmers by asking them to grow what they want could help deter the need to import certain products. A local island food system and food movement development would require; however, looking at the areas which encourage this kind of activity. One is marketing local products, which requires a consistent supplier of any one commodity and making it available to the community on demand.
