Our Livestock

We take pride in the way we raise our livestock. They are all raised out with the utmost care and respect. Our animals are fed a Non-GMO feed from Homestead Harvest. They are rotationally grazed on pasture. We have stress free operations in place to provide them with the most humane life possible.

 

When you support our farm, you'll know you are supporting ethical farming and a small family farm with pure intentions.

Kunekune Pigs

We raise a heritage breed of pigs called Kunekune. We fell in love with the breed because of their docile temperament, grazing capabilities and mainly because of their high quality meat. Kunekune pork is the best pork that we have ever tasted. Their meat is red and marbled, similar to steak. However, I would choose our pork chops over a steak any day. It's the melt in your mouth type of meat, never tough.

Kunekunes are a dual-purpose breed, they make excellent pets but also great meat pigs for homesteads and small farms. While the Kunekune breed grazes they get more nutrients straight from the Earth and do not root like your standard pig does. Kunekunes are typically harvested between 1 - 1.5 years old, depending on genetics.  We feed our Kunekunes hay in the winter, pasture in the growing season, our organic veggie scraps and Non-GMO feed.

Our program for our farm specifically focuses on pork production and offering superior breeding stock from our herd. We are working towards a strict 200in12 program. Meaning, we have the genetics for Kunekune pigs to reach 200+ pounds by 12 months. This saves us time and money.

Nigerian Dwarf Goats

We raise Nigerian Dwarf goats for their milk to be used in our skincare products and for personal use. Bonus, they are smaller than your average breed so less escaping to worry about and easier for our children to handle. Nigerian Dwarfs have the highest amount of butterfat in their milk. This makes the flavor superior to other goat breeds.

 

Our goats are ADGA registered. We have flashy goats (moon spots, blue eyes, polled) and we have goats that have amazing milking genetics and that have been milk tested. However, all of our goats come from milking genetics. We offer quality breeding stock from our herd and pet goats as well.

 

We also offer goat yoga Spring-Fall, check our events tab for upcoming classes.

If you are interested in purchasing a goat from us, send an email to willowmoonfarmllc@gmail.com and we can discuss the goals and any questions/concerns that you may have.

Meat Chickens

We raise meat chickens twice a year, Spring and Fall. They are raised out on our pasture and are moved multiple times a day. They have plenty of room to be chickens, peck the ground and graze. We raise them from start to finish on our farm.

Farm Fresh Eggs

We offer a variety of large - extra large chicken eggs. We have all different breeds of chickens to produce a variety of colors. Our chicken eggs are apart of the Certified Naturally Grown program, meaning they are fed Organic Non-GMO feed and are free range happy healthy chickens!

 

Our eggs and chicken are available straight from the farm and can be placed out for you to pick up at your convenience. We offer an egg CSA where you pick up your eggs every 2 weeks. This guarantees eggs to our CSA members before other customers. They are $6.00 a dozen and can be ordered by direct messaging us or purchased through the online shop.

Great Pyreness
Livestock Guardian Dogs

We raise working Great Pyrenees for Livestock Guardian Dogs to protect our farm from predators. We have coyotes, foxes, raccoons, eagles and hawks that are predators to our stock.

Yeti, our male, has proven himself to be an excellent LGD. He is over 100 pounds and such a love bug to his people. We have exposed him to our customers since he was a puppy and in return, he is amazing with customers who are accompanied with us. He has taken to my children since the beginning. Although, I will admit he doesn't always understand how big he really is and will knock them over in excitement when playing. He is everything we could have wished for with a guardian. He spends his days watching the sky and our woods for lurking predators. We wouldn't be able to do what we do without him. 

Luna is our female and is currently in training with Yeti. Luna will produce off-spring for other farms in need of a guardian in 2024. Both of our Great Pyrenees are AKC registered and come from working bloodlines. Send us a message to get on our waitlist for upcoming puppies.
