Pastured Poultry

Our egg layers and meat chickens are raised on pasture as soon as they can be, and supplemented with plenty of garden scraps and milk or whey from our family milk cow. All our birds are fed a freshly ground NON-GMO/organic grain ration to support their health.

Pastured Pork

Our two Herford cross mama sows raise our piglets until they are ready to be turned out to graze. In addition to all the garden scraps, fresh milk/whey, and foraging, they do get a ration of traditional corn and soy to maintain their condition.

Vegetables and Fruit

Each season a large outdoor garden and 3 high tunnels are managed by our family and the help of friends! Our weeds are managed by hand and fire, as well as pests. This offers a premium product, without the use of any chemicals or sprays.

Honey

Beekeeping is a small part of what we do, but we believe bees are essential to pollinating our garden. The honey sold is just a bonus (and often in small supply)! Our hives never leave the radius of of our farm, meaning all the allergen benefits of local honey are truly local!

FAQ

We do & hope to expand this in the future! We have hosted teacher workshops, YMCA day camps & homeschool tours! Contact us with a date and time you have in mind for your event. Please be mindful of our limited schedule due to harvest and distribution days!

We also happily present at events & workshops as educators. We have a “Poultry for Profit” and “Selling Eggs for Profit” workshops, as well as Beekeeping and Canning workshops, and can tailor other presentations to your event. 

Different products require different licenses. We have many of the required licenses, but not all. For example, we hold an egg handler’s license which allows us to sell eggs through storefronts, but we do not hold a commercial kitchen license, which means we cannot sell honey or sourdough through the cooperatives, as they are considered retail stores.
