Menagerie Acres


We are a family homestead with empty nest syndrome. Since we do not have the need to can huge amounts of meat, vegetables and fruit, we are enjoying our outings to the local markets to talk with other growers and customers. We believe in manual removal of plant pests, earthworms, mulch/compost for the garden and the ability of a good immune system to take care of most bird problems. Background includes degrees in nursing, agriculture and education, as well as employment at UGA and Ga Poultry Lab. And we are voracious students of natural farming and sustainable agriculture.
  • Participate year 'round at Athens Locally Grown and seasonally at Hartwell, Lavonia and WIC markets.
  • Chemical and medication free (except for an herbicide on poison ivy since I am highly allergic to the vine).
  • Grow seasonal vegetables all year along with annual and perennial flowers & herbs.
  • Sell live and processed birds from the farm as well as eggs.
  • Keep a mixed flock of chickens & ducks, Bourbon Bronze turkeys, a few geese and one peacock.
  • Plant growers license (renewed yearly for the farm)
  • Egg candling certificates (one for each of us).
