GOODIES FROM THE HOMESTEAD

Broilers

Our meat chickens arrive to us as 2 days old chicks. They go to the brooder, where they get a special treatment, heat lamps to keep them warm, clean bedding, fresh water with apple cider vinegar and probiotics to help their gut health, grit to help their gizzards function properly, and plenty of good nutritional feed. They will be under our close supervision until week 4 of their lives, at which point we move them outside on the pasture. We keep them safe in mobile pens which get moved every day to offer them fresh grass and plenty of bugs. They are chickens and behave as such! They love to scratch around and they love dust baths, they love the sun, they love people and to eat the grass seeds stuck to our boots. When the time comes to process them, we use humanely methods that don’t place any stress on the birds. We process them right here on the Homestead. They are individually cleaned, inspected and bagged adhering to the highest quality standards. The meat is tender, juicy and very flavorful. We advise our customers to place their orders in advance, because they sell out quickly.  Check out our online store to place your order!

Eggs

Our egg layers arrive to us in early spring as 2 day old chicks. We immediately place them in the brooder, under heat lamps, with clean bedding, fresh water and plenty of good nutritional food. We check on them constantly to make sure they have everything they need. They will remain in the brooder, under close supervision, for a few weeks. Around week 4 of their lives, we move them outside on pasture where they can enjoy being chickens. They scratch, run freely, eat worms and bugs, fresh grass, have plenty of nest boxes with clean hay for a great laying experience, and a safe place to roost when they are sleeping. You may smile, but we whole-heartedly believe that the care we are offering them, result in the best quality eggs you can find out there! They are not locked up in a cage ever, they have plenty of space to roam and look for food, and have you ever seen a chicken taking a dust bath? They are truly amazing creatures when they are given the chance to be themselves!

Pork

Our pigs arrive to us in early March. We always choose a breeder that follows the same practices as ours.  When they arrive to our Homestead they are between 8 and 12 weeks. We provide a safe shelter, filled with quality hay locally sourced, to keep them warm and cozy.  They quickly become accustomed with the new routine and fit right in. We raise them outdoors, on pasture, or in the woods. All day, every day! They enjoy sunlight, fresh grass and tasty roots. We supplement their diet with a locally sourced NON-GMO feed. 

They are loved and taken care of. And then they take care of us. 

We process them at an USDA inspected facility.

Blueberries

Our blueberry patch is located in the middle of the property with easy access from the driveway, and beautiful views of our livestock and the entire farm. The bushes have been planted at least 30 years ago by The Feltons, the family who farmed this land before us. They are 100% NON-GMO, and we don’t use any chemicals on them. No pesticides, no insecticides, no fertilizers. They give us a great fruit, packed with oxidants and flavor. They are great for jellies and jams, but they keep fantastic in the freezer for smoothies or muffins and they are such a wonderful twist to your morning oatmeal. A great healthy snack that you can’t stop eating. We sell them using the U-PICK method. 

THE PATCH IS NOW CLOSED
