For now I currently make jewelry while my husband works in welding. We are trying to recover financially so that we may have another farm some day. We operated from 2005-2007 when we lost our farm because of the inability to get any farm loans.
We were a family owned & operated small farm that raised our livestock in a humane, natural and sustainable manner and plan to do so again in the future.
We had Spotted, Duroc, Chester White & Crossbred hogs. We had 11 Breeds of chickens (Buff Orpington, White & Barred Rock, Ameraucana, Black Jersey Giant and Cornish X Rock) and turkeys (Standard Bronze, Bourbon Red, Blue Slate, Royal Palm, Large White), all of which are on the ALBC's Conservation List. We also had Black Angus X cattle.
We will first get pigs again. They are great farm pets. Then a couple of dairy & beef cows. But, I am most looking forward to being able to get Cashmere goats & Finnsheep -- both of them for fiber & food.
When we are able to return to farming, we will again try to use predominately heritage & rare breeds and use Sustainable Agriculture methods. This includes pasture, natural feeds, love, attention, independence from fossil fuels, and NOT chemicals, pesticides, artificial hormones, growth stimulants, sub-therapeutic antibiotics, or medicated feed.
