Inspirational Local Farmers!

By: Cathy Payne    (Jun 22, 2010)

I have not been fortunate enough to purchase poultry products from Sally and Barry to date, but had a tour of their farm earlier in the month and left greatly inspired. Jon and I have been following the Treffynon blog and have followed their lead in leaving the suburbs of Atlanta to start a small farm. Starting from scratch in unknown territory can be very intimidating. Looking at what Sally and Barry have achieved in a short time and seeing how good husbandry practices can be implemented across species without high tech or expensive equipment was very encouraging. The day after our visit we brought home our first ducks, and plan to expand to sheep and chickens in the next few weeks. If we were not producing our own eggs and meat I would definitely be ordering one of their turkeys or geese for the holidays. For those of you who are avoiding soy products, a huge plus is the fact that Treffynon feeds soy-free grains to their flock. This type of feed is very difficult to locate and adds to the cost of production significantly. However, Sally and Barry hold out very high standards for their flock and produce nutrient-dense food for their customers, many of whom follow the principles of the Weston A. Price Foundation. Kudos to you!
