We produce and sell certified organic Raw Milk, poultry (Chicken and Heritage Turkey),BeefGarlic, vegetables, Flowers, and non-organic (though gmo-free) eggsPastured Pork and lumber. 

The emphasis of our farming enterprise is to function as a self-sufficient 'whole farm organism', applying ecological principles of Holistic ManagementBiodynamicsDowsing, motive (animal) power, and renewable energy to create healthy vibrant food and forest products for our family and our local community. 

Everything on our farm is raised using a process of intention and intuition to validate the unseen energy of Life's creative process. The name of our farm points to our belief in the inherent wisdom of established processes of the Earth, and that as we work to secure what we need from the land, we also need to validate those processes as our most valuable resources.

We offer Educational Workshops throughout the calendar year covering topics that include: Raw Dairy Processing (Cheese, Butter & Yogurt Making), Dowsing & AgricultureCaring for Your Family Cow & CalfHorse Logging & Forestry, and Management Intensive Grazing.
