What We Grow & Make

We provide products for many areas of your life!

Eggs

Duck eggs: Our ducks have free-range of the farm. They have a small pond (kids sandbox) that is cleaned  refilled several times a week, a nearby seasonal pond that is usually full in Spring, wet weeks in the summer and autumn, and a stream down the hill that runs year-round. They also enjoy a small section of the woods as well as a horse field for bug foraging. They’re fed GMO-free and soy free feed. All of our ducks lay large – jumbo sized white eggs. If you don’t know about the benefits of duck eggs, please read our article on them (coming soon).

Chicken eggs: Our chicken coop is right next to the duck coop and they often free-range as a large group. Our chickens are also fed GMO-free and soy-free feed. They produce large eggs in shade of brown and green.

Meat

Pastured Chicken: We are raising one batch of 50 broiler chickens in 2017. We’ve chosen to try Freedom Rangers this year, which are a red broiler known for their foraging capabilites. They will be fed soy-free, GMO-free feed. They are a heritage breed chicken, and grow slower than conventional broilers. We like our chickens on the large size so we plan on raising them to around 14 weeks of age.  After they’ve grown big enough to be outside (about 3 weeks), we are going to move their coop around with our sheep. They’ll have daily access to pasture but have the protection of an electric fence. We will open up for chicken pre-orders in late July. Look for more information soon!

Body and Home Care

Body Butter: Our luxurious body butters are extremly moisturizing and nourishing to your skin. They are made from mango butter, shea butter, coconut oil and essential oils. We currently are carrying these scents:
~lavender
~clary sage & frankincense
~sweet orange and tangerine

Ultra-Whipped Body Butter: Our ultra-whipped body butter is light and fluffy! It is so light it feels like walking through a cloud, but it is incredibly moisturizing. It’s ingredients are coconut oil, shea butter, mango butter, beeswax  and essential oils. If you enjoy smooth, creamy lotions you will love this product! We currently are carrying these scents:
~bergamot

Liquid Laundry Detergent: This homemade detergent works great and has far fewer ingredients than those in stores. We use super washing soda, borax and fels naptha laundry soap. You could make your own, but we’ve done the work for you!

Magnesium Oil: Our magnesium oil is made from magnesium  chloride flakes and distilled water. It’s a great way to get your magnesium transdermally. If you find it causes you itching, we recommend you try spraying it on the soles of your feet or diluting it 50% with water. Over time, most people are able to transition to spraying it on their body or using it full-strength. For more information about magnesium oil, read this article (coming soon)

After-Sun Care Cream: As careful as we try to be, it’s easy to get a bit too much sun. This cream helps soothe and moisturize your skin when you’re a bit crispy. This cream uses aloe vera gel, shea butter, calendula oil, beeswax, coconut oil, raw honey, vitamin E oil, essential oils of frankincense, lavender, tea tree, peppermint. It works wonderfully on 1st and mild 2nd degree sunburns.

 

Who We Are

Farmer Kelsi

Kelsi has been farming for three years. She decided farming was the life for her after a decade of teaching middle school. No, it was NOT the kids that caused her to switch gears! She’s always loved the outdoors and years inside were not fulfilling to her. She’s building her dream job while apprenticing with Leah of Grazy Days Family Farm.

 

 

 

Assistant Farmer Abby

Abby enjoys helping on the farm. She especially enjoys helping with baby animals and by driving vehicles. She’s not sure she wants to be a farmer when she is older. Despite her dyslexia, she’s thinking about becoming a writer!

 

 

 

 

 

Farm Dog Hammi

Hammi joined us in June of 2016 as a two year old. We believe he’s a Great Pyrenees/ Black Lab mix. He enjoys the wide open spaces and doing chores, but has been known to catch poultry and lick them beyond the point of comfort, so he is currently in training to become less “helpful” around the birds.
