Wholesome food from healthy soils; healing families so they can live their best lives.
Corrientes never get sick and always gets pregnant. They are small and easier to butcher if we have to do it ourselves. They are cheap, the first calf selling for the same price as you purchased the cow. Jonathan will raise the cows on grass, planning the grazing for optimal health to breed and lactate. The calf is ready for wholesale at eight months old. We will keep some to grass finish and process at the local meat locker for retail sale, of which some will go to our shareholders.
Katahdin sheep are disease-resistant, which is perfect for an organic operation. Jonathan pastures the sheep with the cattle making a dynamic duo since they eat different types of forage. The sheep-to-product process is the same as with the cattle.
We will have a handful of dairy sheep for that extra creamy goodness that is amazing for gourmet cheese but also offers us the use of its wool for making felted wool clothing in a pinch.
breed Broiler Chickens
The breed of broiler chickens Jonathan has chosen for our operation and why. Our broiler chickens are also valuable for the farm's ecology in the same way our layers are. They live in small hoop house portable structures surrounded by a miniture electric fence. These pasture raised hens are taken to the butcher at eight months old and sold in all our retail outlets.
Breed of Chickens
Our name of breed chickens we chose because reason. We free range them in electric pultry netting and roost them in a cute portable chicken coop. the chickens provide a great resource to the ecology of the soil. They eat harmful bugs, contribute healthy firtlizer to the soil. After this rich diet our chickens produce rich yellow eggs which we sell retail at farmers markets, an egg kiosk and In our sunscriotpn and delivery services for a great organic pasture rasied price.
Heirloom wheat and corn
Our grain crops are small and designed to feed the chickens and families on the farm so they will not produce enough to sell except for in small quanity in the form of bread made to order for our delivery customers.
Produce & Nuts
Jonathan has carefully selected fruit and nut trees for our climate from nurseries such as ty ty In Georgia and the other one in Washington.
Many of our fruit trees are heirloom varieties that are very rare in America, giving us a distinct advantage. Fruit and Nut trees are a very long-term crop and will not produce enough food reliably to sell for ten years but offer great self-sustainability to the farm and pig feed
He has also extended our growing season with a greenhouse for oranges and avocados, a unique and rare crop for our locality.
We will grow every kind of garden vegetable we can think of and sell the product with many retail options for purchase, such as at a farmers market or pick-your-own. We also plan a delivery truck. More about the growing operation
American Guinea Hog
We love to eat bacon with our eggs, so we had to add pigs to the farm. Jonathan chose American Guinea Hogs for their ability to graze on grass like a cow. They also are an invaluable tool for plowing our gardens. The Pigs are fattened on windfalls from our fruit and nut trees. American Guinea Hogs average two litters a year with 6 piglets each. We only intend to have one and will sell the piglets wholesale. We plan on keeping a couple to raise and butcher for retail purposes, particularly for our shareholders.
We don't have many dairy cows because of they labor-intensive and the products are highly regulated. But no self-sustaining farm would be complete without them. We keep three milk cows that we milk by hand twice daily. We sell raw chemical and hormone free grass-fed milk directly to our customers through a milk kiosk on the farm and our milk wagon. Our customers love the high dairy fat, and some even purchase just the cream.
