Through Mason's testimony, our family has learned the importance of creating a well-balanced ecosystem on the farm. The foods raised and grown on our farm are nurtured without the use of pesticides, hormones or other chemical inputs. We use regenerative soil methods that cycle nutrients to feed the plants, which create more developed flavors. Keeping our soils covered with grasses and legumes feeds the microbes, holds in moisture and sequesters atmospheric carbon. In a nut shell... we nurture rich, healthy soils to produce nutrient-dense foods.
Our animals are pasture raised and moved often, which helps build soil health and break disease cycles.
Our farm residents include livestock guardian dogs, sheep, chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, and guinea hens,
Our chicken eggs are pasture raised and organically fed. The girls move frequently, giving them fresh pasture to search for bugs and the most delicious blades of grass. $7 a dozen
Our duck eggs are raised in a similar way to our chickens (pasture raised and organically fed). Ducks however, need much more water to be happy. We provide them with several mini tubs of water that get changed out often (ducks are messy!). Our duck eggs are slightly alkaline and more nutrient dense than chicken eggs. As a general rule, 1 dozen duck eggs are the equivalent of 1 1/2 chicken eggs. $10 a dozen
Our principal foundation for growing starts with the soil. We use the term "Cultivating Nutrition" because we are committed to providing you with the most nutrient dense, organically grown fruits and vegetables possible. Our goal is to increase biodiversity, enrich our soil, and enhance the ecosystem. We do this for one reason... to make us all healthier. We want you to feel confident that you're feeding your family nutritious food that is pesticide, herbicide, and GMO free.
Our heritage turkeys are hatched and raised on the farm from our 3rd generation breeding flock. They are raised on pasture and fed organically through out their lives on the farm. These turkeys are very special and are perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. The flavor is very rich and deep, one that has to be experienced rather than described. Our turkey deposits are on the last Saturday of September every year at our on farm market on a first come, first served basis. $50 deposit / $8 per lb (balance due at time of pick up)
We raise two breeds of grass fed lamb on our farm; Katahbados (Katahdin and Barbados mix) and Sulfolk. The hybrid vigor of these two breeds provides an incredibly tender and micro-marbled meat. Weights average 34-40 pounds per whole, processed lamb.
Grass fed lamb has higher protein and lower fat content, as well as twice the amount of lutein compared to its conventional counterpart. Lutein is closely related to beta-carotene, but is absorbed more readily. Lutein reduces the risk of macular degeneration (a leading cause of blindness) and may also help prevent breast and colon cancer, according to "Eat Wild.com".
We sell our lamb in the market when available.
