Firesign Family Farm

We maintain a production flock of Icelandic sheep and on occasion have breeding stock, fleeces, and sheep's milk for sale. We also keep Jersey cows and Alpine goats and offer dairy herd shares which allow you access to raw milk, butter, yogurt, kefir, cream, cheese, and whey. Home dairy cow management and milking instruction available along with other farmstead type classes and demonstrations. Our farm features extensive vegetable and flower gardens in addition to open fields and woods; we encourage our patrons to visit us frequently throughout the year to take advantage of the beauty and serenity our acreage offers. While we don't sell produce per se, you are likely to go home with a bag of veggies and an armful of flowers after every trip during the growing season! We do offer both medicinal and culinary herbs for sale throughout the summer. Fresh eggs are also available most of the year. We raise broiler chickens, turkeys, lamb, pork, rabbit, and beef. Sales are by contract in spring/early summer for fall butchering with the exception of broilers which are available fresh at various times throughout the year and frozen year around dependant on supply. We welcome the opportunity to share with you our passion for safe and healthy food nurtured in a respectful, compassionate setting.
