Zephyr Creek Farms was established to provide a local food source for both our family and our community. We feel very strongly about the care and treatment of our animals, and the sustainability of our lands. We utilize a contained free-range system with all poultry.

We are a small, family farm dedicated to hanging onto and bringing back "heritage breeds" of livestock.

Silver Fox Rabbits
Cotton Patch Geese
Swedish Flower Chickens

Our small farm has grown out of a desire to bring fresh real food to people. Without the help of family or a bank for financial and moral support we decided that since we could not buy a farm we would rent land and turn it into a farm. Which is what we did. We rent our 20 acres and other small pastures in the area in the hopes that we can someday have a place to call ours, but in the mean time this allows us to do what we enjoy!
