Full Circle Farm in the Catawba Valley is a small family operation. We do not give our animals hormones, routine antibiotics (but would if it would mean saving the life of an animal-just like we do for our children!), or conventional feed. We use locally grown non-GMO grain for our grain eaters from Sunrise Farms, supplements like organic flaxseed and minerals from Countryside Natural, and pasture that is never fertilized with synthetic fertilizer or treated with herbicides or pesticides.
Our 15 year old helps with the cattle and hog part of the business. He also has taken classes at a community college with his dad to learn about beekeeping.
Our 12 year old is the poultry man. He raises free-range chickens with non-GMO feed for delicious eggs.
Our 10 year old is the dairy goat entrepeneur. She cares for her sweet herd of dairy goats and milks the mamas and sells the babies.
Our 7 yr old is apprenticing with Mom, learning to milk our jersey-gurnsey cow so she can milk her own heifer next year.
Philip and Ginger(dad &mom) care for the pastured broilers, ducks, and the sheep. Ginger has a baking company, Taste and See, and offers freshly ground chemical-free whole wheat products, seasonal farm produce and occasionally lamb, pork, chicken and duck for sale at the farm, or at Ikenberry's in Daleville, Va on Saturdays throughout summer. Check with us about goat or cow shares.
We love to eat yummy healthy food and love to help others discover that if they "Taste and See" they will find that REAL FOOD is the way to go!
The Hillery's love to barter. If you want to eat real local food and feel like you have no financial options, please know there are always options.
