This Small Farm Fresh...now working on nearly 40 years. Generations are not something we can say have ran this farm although we are working on it! My parents bought this farm to raise meat and grow fruit and vegetables for us to enjoy. Grandpa still has his say on how to raise the meat correctly. And eventhough Grandma is no longer here she instilled her ways of raising birds and gardening perfections. We still learn everyday.
Maybe there will be another 40 years to go with generations to come! Raising our meats and produce the "Old School Ways"
I miss you mom. Love you.
Our Beef are raised on this farm. They enjoy eating grass and hay and occasionally some leftover fruit from our trees. Our chickens are free ranged and free spirited birds. They eat whatever they find outside including grubs and bugs. Our laying hens are also the outdoor types. They also enjoy the simpler things in life. The Porkers are raised in the fields of grass and weeds. What about our Lamb and Goat? Friends we trust and respect, as they adore their animals, raise them for us with the same easy going life as our animals are raised. And the Ducks are just bug control! Our fruits and vegetables grow amongst the weeds (so No pesticides or herbicides). And those weeds are also helpful in honey production as our bees enjoy all the flowers including the annoying ones.
Hobby Farming isn't a fabulous lifestyle...As pretty as we make it! This farm has raised animals and grown produce for many years. There are wondrous occasions and devastating ones. But you brush the crap off your pants after falling knee deep in it.
We're the working class and the hobbyist tossed into a chaotic sweet mess. We enjoy (mostly) what we're doing. We can't keep up most days and are excited when we think we are!
We still love each other as a working, farming family should. Nobody has wound up in the bottom of the pond yet!
