Our farm started as a way to provide our rapidly growing family with delicious, natural foods whose origins we could be absolutely sure of, our backyard has blossomed from a humble family garden into the desire to start successful city farm. Our little farm will have fresh produce year round thanks to careful planning and working with a variety of fruits and vegetables that thrive within their true growing seasons. Using simple, traditional farming techniques means that we don't have to resort to chemicals, genetic modification, voo-doo or trickery to keep our crops growing. Producing several heirloom and rare-to-exotic vegetables as possible in a small patch of land. It is our goal is to increase our sustainability and have designed our farm as such.

Our beautiful heritage and rare breed hens provide us with a diverse offering of colorful eggs. Eggs are available year-round and exibit colors such as cream, pink, carmel-brown, aqua-blue, olive-green and chocolate brown. These eggs are sure to delight in their beauty and rich taste. Hens range daily and are provided fresh homegrown fruits and vegetables, our non-GMO grains as well as supplemental certified organic feed rations. Additionally, hens are fed organic flax to increase the Omega-3 content of each egg. We appreciate our "girls" hard work and tend to treat them more like pets than poultry. Happy chickens produce our delicious eggs!
Unlike large factory farms whose chicken never experience fresh air and sunshine, or those that get to walk around in a small pen for an hour a day just to be slapped with the "Free-Range" label, our chicken get to be...well, chickens! That means foraging, flapping, scratching and doing all the wonderful things chickens do naturally. We believe that a healthy, happy bird provides the best quality meat and succulent flavor. Treating our chickens humanely not only benefits our table, but also support our family's core values.
