What We Grow & Make

At Koofie’s Natural Living we believe what you put on your body is as important as what you put in your body. We provide safe and healthy skin and body care products as well as food and traditional herbals for whole body wellness!

Eggs

Duck eggs: Our ducks have free-range of the farm. They have a nearby seasonal pond that is usually full in Spring, wet weeks in the summer and autumn, a stream down the hill that runs year-round, and in the summer a small pool I clean and refill a few times a week. They also enjoy a few acres of woods and horse fields for bug foraging. They’re fed fermented GMO-free and soy-free feed. All of our ducks lay large – jumbo sized white or slightly colored eggs. If you don’t know about the benefits of duck eggs, please read our article on them.

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 shades of brown and green.

Meat

Pork: We have a small heard of pigs consisting of one boar and two sows, along with piglets in various stages of growth. The pigs have access to 10-30 acres of woods and are fed fermented GMO-free and soy-free feed daily in addition to what they glean from the forest. Pork is available as a half or whole hog, and we may start producing cuts of meat in the future. Please email us for questions about pork availability!

Lamb: We are in our second year of producing lamb and our availability is very slim as we grow our herd. Our lamb is out on pasture all year and supplemented with excellent quality hay when the grass isn’t growing. Please contact us about lamb as we will be taking deposits in mid-late summer for late fall lamb.

Body and Home Care

Body Butter: Our 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 shea butter, mango butter,  coconut oil, and essential oils. If you enjoy smooth, creamy lotions you will love this product! We currently are carrying these scents:
~Lavender
~Grounded in Paradise
~Cup o’ Joe
~Bare Naked
~Grounded
~Burst of Sunshine

Ditch the Itch: Poison Ivy Relief Salve (Limited Edition). This amazing salve is perfect for those who are prone for poison ivy or who want to have something on hand “just in case”. Ditch the Itch is made from wildcrafted jewelweed and plantain infused in organic olive oil, as well as beeswax.
Note: This is a Limited Edition Product. It can only be offered when we have the supplies to make it; Jewelweed is only available seasonally.

Magnesium Oil: Our magnesium oil is made from magnesium  chloride flakes and distilled water. It’s a great way to apply 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.

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. We use aloe vera gel, shea butter, calendula oil, beeswax, coconut oil, raw honey, vitamin E oil, essential oils of frankincense, lavender, tea tree, peppermint to make this wonderful cream. It is recommended for use only on 1st and mild 2nd degree sunburns.

Balms: Our line of luscious lip and body balms began after many requests. We have both regular and tinted lip balms, as well as some body balms coming soon.

Who We Are

Farmer Kelsi

Kelsi has been farming since 2015. 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.

 

 

Eldest Daughter Eirian        

Eirian enjoys “supervising”, preferably from inside the house. She’s in charge of anything artistic or creative and is a great help to the business.

 

 

 

Assistant Farmer Abby

Abby enjoys helping on the farm. She especially enjoys caring for baby animals and by driving vehicles. She’s not sure she wants to be a farmer when she is older but is enjoying testing out multiple interests on and off the farm.

 

 

 

 

Farm Dog Hammi            

Hammi joined us in June of 2016 as a two year old. We believe he’s a Newfoundland/ 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.

 

Our Story

Kelsi, Eirian and Abby spent quite a few years in Columbia, Maryland where they lived a typical suburban life. Around 2010/11, Kelsi started feeling ill with unexplained pains and memory issues. Fatigue set in and by 2012 she was having a hard time keeping up with 125 middle schoolers each day! One of her stress-relievers was to dream of a quiet farm with animals where she could spend her days outside. Illness forced her to give up teaching and eventually she met Leah of Grazy Days Family Farm, who had a house to rent and was willing to teach Kelsi about farming. The girls were excited for a change of pace and a new environment, as well as a switch to homeschooling. While life is not exactly the idyllic farm scene they all pictured in their heads, living in the country has definitely helped all of them learn and grow over the years.
