One of the most common questions we get is what kind of goat should you get. We’ve tried and experienced many breeds, and have decided for our farm, we would always go with a “full size” breed. Of course, it depends on your preference and how your farm is set up.

Yesterday we got nearly 3 gallons of milk from our 3 milk goats.

Now, our goats are not blue ribbon dairy goats. None are registered, they are not young, yet they still produced this much!

We’ve raised Nubian, La’Mancha, Alpine & some crosses, but our favorite for milk, and personality is the Saanen.

What experience do you have with goats?

Our meat chickens are raised on total open pasture. They are free to come and go out of their coop as they feel free to stretch their legs, forage, take dust baths and eat & drink.

Although our chickens grow a little slower, and might finish a little smaller, we have found this method to be the most efficient on us, and the healthiest way to raise chickens for meat.

The quality of life these chickens have, comes through in the flavor of the meat.

Chicken ( Breast, Leg Quarters, Wings, Thighs & Drumsticks ) will be at the Chelsea Farmers Market on Saturday, and the Stockbridge Market on Friday!

Chicks have a couple more weeks inside the Brooder to keep them healthy, warm and safe before we take them outside onto grass. We still try to give them lots of space to stay clean and not smother each other, although they do love to stay warm by snuggling.

These chicks will be for meat in the beginning of July. This year, to begin, we are not taking pre-orders on our chicken as we have in years past.

We will be making most of these into “cuts” for market and online/delivery sales.

Breast, Wings, Leg Quarters, Thighs and Drumsticks!

We moved the garden tillers and prepped our first spot for potatoes. They took care of probably 95% of the weeds but it was more compacted than I had hoped it would be. But overall happy with the work they put in.

We came back from our first vacation in 6 years to an extremely busy week. Came home to watch our last goat give birth to twins. Attended a community Easter Egg Hunt, Drove 1500 miles in 7 days, took 5 pigs to the butcher, picked up 9 more pigs, delivered to 25 customers, had a blow out on 127 , received our farm merch, updated our website, attended our first in person market for the year and still had time to help family move, attend birthday parties, church and multiple meetings....

I like to do some experiments in the garden. Last year I planted some carrots at the end of August, maybe hoping for a long warm fall. That didn’t necessarily happen and then I intended on covering this bed with plastic to keep the snow off them, That didn’t happen either. This spring they came back to life, and have been growing new green tops. Now to see how big the carrots will grow and how they will taste!

The Path To Our Farm

In 2010 our family made the decision to begin eating better. We wanted more nutrient dense food, sourced locally. We started shopping locally at co-ops, local heath stores and visiting farmers markets. We noticed such a difference in quality of food, our health and the way we felt after meals. We stopped eating out as frequent and ate fresh!

In 2014 we decided that we were capable of raising meat and veggies for our own family. The only problem was, we were renting, and didn’t have the ability to raise and grow where we were. So, the hunt was on to buy our own farm! This was an adventure of its own and the process was long and hard. Finally, in 2016 we purchased our own farm on 3.5 acres. We began with goats for milk, and a small veggie garden. The Spring of 2017 we purchased our first laying hens. I was supposed to only get 8, but 16 came home with us. We increased our garden space significantly. The Spring of 2018 we added pigs and meat chickens.

By this time, our farm was really growing. We had always had Goat Herd Shares for people to get milk. This helped pay for the feed, and some of the farm expenses for the first few years. But once we started getting into the pigs and meat chickens, our farm expenses started to rack up. We decided we needed to start making some income on the farm. We sold pigs for meat, and partnered with another family to raise chickens for them which paid for ours. But the farm vision was just beginning.

The Winter of 2018 God put it on our hearts to use the farm as a ministry. We valued so much from learning, raising and eating our own locally sourced, nutrient dense food that we wanted to share it with those in need. While serving at local food pantries, we noticed the need for fresh, nutrient dense food. We decided that God had gifted us with the passion and abilities to help our community in this area.

Friday I met Shafer farms at the Stockbridge farmers market. I purchased a variety of meats. Mothers day brunch for Penny, our home grown eggs and Shafers sausage patties. I cooked them on my sear box grill. The sausage is as good as any I have enjoyed. Look forward to enjoying more of your high quality products. Glad to have found you.
