se birds have just come back from near extinction. Although a slow grower even the white meat is tender. We raise Freedom Ranger chickens for the meat. This breed grows fast but not too fast. We avoid any joint issues with this bird. Once feathered they are put out with the layer hens and free range with the flock. This year we are raising half-berkshire hogs. We can put you on the list for fresh pork any time but we only get hogs once a year so plan ahead. We start them on concrete and quickly move them to large grassy areas to root around. All our animals are raised without hormones or any unneccesary antibiotics.
The veggie garden produces peas, carrots, onions, green beans, asparagus, potatoes, squash, spinach, lettuce and radishes at various times during the summer.
All in vaious quantities and at different times.
We have several hives on the premises. Depending on the year it has been up to four hives and as low as one. We are members of the Skagit Valley Beekeepers club. After eight years we are still learning and welcome anyone who has questions or just wants to take a look. We sell the honey and sometimes have bees wax candles available. We are also carrying honey from across the state of Washington. I just couldn't produce enough to meet demand. In the fall I will have local honey again. It sells out fast.
We participate in both farmer's markets here on Whidbey Island. On Thursday afternoons we can be found at the Oak Harbor Market on HWY 20 and on Saturdays we can be found at the Coupeville Market in the large field right next to the library. (Good food and good books, what more could you want?)
We are always trying something new so please give us a call to see what's growing this year.
