We have very little land, but have put about as many animals and plants on it as possible!
We raise Nubian dairy goats, American Guinea Hogs, chickens, rabbits, honeybees, ducks and peafowl. We have 2 garden areas plus fruit trees and bushes and some herbs, which we'll be adding to.
For sale we usually have chicken eggs available - please call first to be certain we have what you need. Our chickens are penned with both inside shelter, nest boxes and roosting poles as well as an outside pen. On and off they are allowed free access to the rest of our yard, but it depends on what fruits are ripening (if they will eat all our harvest) and if we can keep them out of our barn (which they make a horrible mess out of). We feed them mostly a commercial chicken crumble feed plus fresh veggies and fruit from our gardens when we have them, grass clippings and weeds, dinner leftovers, and the eggshells from the eggs we use to add calcium to their diet. We also sell homemade goat milk soap, goat milk hand and body cream, sugar scrub, lip balm and and herbal skin salve. All these are made by us on the farm, except the cream which is a pre-made cream base that we add fragrance to to match our soaps. In season, we have fresh oregano and small amounts of fresh chives and peppermint. All will be cut fresh when purchased.

This is a farm where children participate in the daily chores. Beautiful peacocks strut their stuff and the variety of animals is delightful. I especially like the goats!
