Our little Farm is still young. But we have lots of enthusiasm and we love to work to produce foods that are healthy for our family and in a way that lovingly enhances our Beautiful Earth Mother. This is good for us too!
In the Fall, we teach classes on Shiitake Mushroom Inoculation. And we grow Shiitake mushrooms for food.
Currently we have Wheatgrass Flats and frozen wheatgrass cubes.
We produce Kombucha Cultures and teas for those brave enough to try this sparkling, and wonderfully unique taste. Very healthy.
We have our own local bee hives and sell our raw honey in pints and quarts. Our Bee Keeper John Tackett teaches classes during the year on Honey Extractions and in January and February a New class on Getting your Hives Ready for spring.
We grow the usual heirloom veggies, plus some unusual things.
We also LOVE to wild forage for foods like wild blackberries, Black Walnuts, Chestnuts, Dandelions, Parilla or Shiso and Lambs quarters, wild persimmons, to name a few.
We have" Day Free Range" Chickens we keep just for eggs. The girls are allowed to roam all day, eating whatever they like, from morning until they go in the Roost Room at night. But then we lock them in or we should say, lock out the predators, from getting at them while they sleep. So they are safe and sound little divas. We also prepare "Platters" for them which contains any of the following: rice, wheat, barley, egg shells, pumpkins and pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, Bananas( their favorite treat) cut wheatgrass flats, egg yolks and lots of tomatoes and fresh veggies from the garden. Now we are moving into sprouted grains. We are getting away from GMO corn or soy in their feeds. They LOVE a Kombucha Mother to snack on.
We grow and sell native plants. Anything from Bottle Brushes to figs.
We enjoy what we do here, and if we can show that in any way, it would be in what we can produce here and in the ways we do it. ..with great love for our environment, naturally, using no chemicals for fertilizers or pesticides or herbicides.
We love what we do. We work hard and it shows. We keep our Day Roaming Chickens healthy and safe, and in return, the little divas give us eggs in the colors of the rainbow. We have mean bees that give us sweet honey. Classes are taught on Extraction and Hive Set up. We love wheatgrass and frozen cubes for tasty afternoon drinks of health. We love to Wild Forage for Gourmet Meals. We grow Shiitake Mushrooms and teach class on Shiitake Mushroom Inoculation in the Fall to the public.
