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 and through our woods. 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.
We raise a heritage breed of pigs called, Kunekune. We fell in love with the breed because of their docile temperament, grazing capabilities and most importantly, 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 have been know to be a dual-purpose breed, they make excellent pets but also great meat pigs (with the right genetics) 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.
With that said, we are strictly geared towards pork production and offering superior breeding stock from our herd to other like minded farms/homesteads. We have been worked diligently on our genetics to have a "200in12" herd. Meaning our pigs are reaching/surpassing 200 pounds in 12 months. We currently have a barrow 150 pounds at just 6 months old and just added a boar to our breeding stock that was 275 pounds at 12 months. These are amazing growth rates in the Kunekune world. We have improved our growth rates and the quality of our meat through genetics and ultrasounds of our breeding stock.

Nigerian Dwarf Goats
We raise Nigerian Dwarf goats for their milk to be used in our skincare products and for personal consumption. 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. Our goals for our herd are high milk production and bigger teats for hand milking. The majority of our herd has their milk stars and our bucks have their *B. We offer high quality breeding stock from our herd and pet wethers as well.
We also offer goat yoga Spring-Fall, check our events tab for upcoming classes and our Facebook page.
If you are interested in purchasing a goat from us, send an email to email@example.com so we can discuss your goals and any questions/concerns that you may have.
