Farming


I wanted to give you all a little update on our farm.  Due to our recent trip out of the country, we are building it up again slowly, but thankfully we have several years of experience to assist with that!

What do we keep on our farm?

Raised bed gardens using the Back to Eden method of gardening.   Eventually we hope to have a greenhouse too!

Heritage breed chickens – our favorites are Buff Orpingtons, Barnevelders, Cuckoo Murans and Auracanas.  These are all multipurpose birds that are very versatile in the surroundings they can thrive in.  We love to let them free range on our 10 acre property.

Nigerian Dwarf Goats – these are the smallest dairy goats ~ with the sweetest milk. (can give up to a gallon per day – or MORE) We love that they are easy to manage because of their size. Their personalities are amazing and they eat less than the larger breeds.  In addition to all of that, they come in a variety of colors! This one has blue eyes.

We buy the best goats we can – from well-known lines and with strong pedigrees for milk.  If you want to know more about our little wonder goats, use the contact form and let us know!  We’ll send you a link to our website.  Every year we have some of these cute little nigerian dwarf goats for sale!

We are valiantly attempting to have some fruit growing as well – we presently have strawberries, raspberries and a start of a wild plum tree.  Our beautiful apple tree died last spring when we got a deep frost after it had begun budding.
