Shepherd's Valley raises pastured poultry including broilers, heritage turkeys, and farm fresh eggs. Customers tell us our broilers remind them of that old-fashioned chicken flavor they remember when they were kids - "just like Grandma used to serve." Our pampered hens lay gorgeous large brown eggs that are a real treat - delighting bakers, chefs, and breakfast eaters. Heritage breeds and broad-breasted bronze turkeys are raised for the Thanksgiving table. Like all of our poultry, these big beautiful birds are raised on lush green pastures and fed certified organic grains and trace mineral supplements. No vaccinations, antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, or medicated feeds are used in the production of our birds.
Grass fed Corriedale sheep and lambs provide our customers with premium table fare and beautiful handspinner's wool. A growing number of hand spinning enthusiasts are discovering our prize-winning wool fleeces. Our lambs are 100% naturally grown on Psalm 23 green pastures and hay. Everyone who tries our lamb meat comes back for more! A number of area chefs find no comparison equal to Shepherd's Valley lamb.
We are beekeepers as well, providing our customers with honey and bee pollen, and value-added products such as jams and jellies. You do not have to be a member of our CSA to purchase farm products, however our shareholders receive first priority.

We purchased a half share in Shepherd's Valley in 2008 and are looking forward to our second season with them. It was wonderful to experience a more seasonal approach to eating and to know that what you were putting on the table was clean and free of chemicals.... [more]
