Seven Trees Farm is a low-input, low-impact diversified subsistence market farm, raising heirloom garlic, eggs & poultry and sometimes pork. We focus on food growing and preservation for home use and for sale. We also strive to perpetuate historical skills and customs by studying, practicing and sharing them with others.
The chickens at Seven Trees Farm play an important part in our system of farming by keeping down pest insects, fertilizing as they aerate pastures and paddocks with their scratching.
Our small varied flock has a comfortable dry indoor space safe from the weather, a large outdoor yard, and they are regularly released to range on our green pastures which we seed with forage mixes designed to make healthy hens & eggs. They are also fed green chop or grass when we mow or scythe areas, and enjoy kitchen leftovers like bread heels and vegetable peels, not to mention loads of garden goodies depending on the season.
Our farm horse Kate, while in training, contributes greatly to soil fertility by providing plenty of manure that we compost with the hen house bedding. When Kate has learned enough to be a safe work horse, she will help by harrowing pasture, pulling a manure spreader, and pulling a variety of passenger and farm vehicles.
Why local pastured eggs?
Buying local keeps your money in the community. The food is not transported great distances saving energy/fuel and the environment. The food is not only fresher, it tastes better. You're supporting local farmers, keeping them in business and in turn their farms, rural space, and pastures stay undeveloped.
Lovely brown, green, and speckled eggs from our free-ranging mixed flock of heritage breed hens - Marans, Barred Rock, Welsummer, New Hampshire, Ameraucana, and Olivers.
We also have a large crop of heirloom garlic coming on this summer, Kettle River and Chesnok Red. Both have been grown from our own seed stock for years, and are acclimatized to the Pacific Northwest. Contact us to reserve yours now.
