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).

    Listing last updated on Jan 4, 2013

    Family-sized garden with barnyard birds. We offer fresh veggies, eggs, annual/perennial flower plants and herbs, colorful feathers from our barnyard flock plus live/processed duck. We use no meds/chemicals, rely on healthy immune systems in our birds, earthworms, compost and mulch to fertilize our veggies and hand picking of our insect pests. The work we put in and the enjoyment we get out of the garden shows in our products.
