Turkeys

Chickens

Pigs

Our animals are free range or pasture raised.

Our egg layers are free range and our meat birds (both turkeys and chickens) are pasture raised. The pigs are raised in the woods and pasture, eating all the acorns and other vegetation they want.

Large Black Hogs

The Large Black is an orchard pig, meaning its genetics were naturally developed for living in the backyard and eating the local forage including older fruit that fell off the tree. Its dark skin protects it from sunburn during long hours of grazing, and its long ears shield its eyes from dirt while foraging. The Large Black pig is native to Cornwall, Devon, and Somerset in southwestern England.

Maintaining rare and heritage breeds is crucial for a healthy and safe food supply. These rare and heritage breeds are also renowned for their taste! The Large Blacks are appropriately named large as they can reach weights upwards of 700 pounds. They have long deep bodies with strong backs and are always solid black. Because of this long deep body the Large Black is considered to be a bacon breed. They are among the most docile and friendly breeds of hogs alive today. The pigs start out shy but will soon bond with people.

Cornish Cross Chickens (meat birds)

The Cornish Cross Broiler is a broad breasted bird with large thighs. This is a fast growing meat bird, that is a cross between the Cornish chicken and a White Rock chicken. Therefore is is also known as a Cornish Rock. They were developed for the commercial meat chicken market and have been dominating it for the past fifty years. Our birds are raised in chicken tractors (pasture poultry pens) allowing them to eat bugs and grass along with their non-GMO feed.

Broad Breasted Turkeys

This bird is commercially the most widely used breed of domesticated turkey. We grow both White and Bronze turkeys. Our turkeys are grown for about 4 months, to 25 to 40 lbs live weight. These birds like our chickens are raise in pasture poultry pens getting to eat grass and bugs along with their non-GMO feed.

Laying Hens

We have been told that "verity is the spice of life" and we follow this belief with our Pullets. Therefore, we do not have a single laying breed. Every spring we go to the local farm store and buy a couple of each bird. We have or have had the following breeds: Plymouth Rock, Rhode Island, Orpington, Australorp, Ameraucana, and Sex-links just to name a few. Our laying birds are free range and free rein of the property.
