What We Do...


You might be wondering what we do with all these animals? The goats are a dairy herd and get milked daily we are hoping to do herd shares with the goats as they are raised organically but right now we have no place they can come pick up milk and no place for an extra fridge to hold large amounts of milk. Goat kids are sold as pets or 4-h goats. The chickens and ducks lay eggs that we sell; they are organic, non-soy, non-gmo and cage free. There is a large need for farm eggs in our area and even with us selling 7 dozen eggs a week and some of our friends selling 22 dozen eggs a week there is still a 6 week wait or longer to get into the egg rotation which is why we have so many chicks because they will grow up and lay eggs hopefully easing some of the demand and allowing more people access to more nutritious eggs. The rabbits are used for meat rabbits or on occasion pets and 4-h rabbits. We are big fans of re-using things such as pallets, the tin off a old carport, snow fencing, safety fence, crating boards from steel shipments, even nails and screws.
