PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
Providing Nutrient Dense Food: Our land is cared for using Organic, Biodynamic, and Regenerative practices. Our livestock (poultry, hogs and cows) are raised on well managed pasture and our flowers, herbs and vegetables are grown in permanent raised beds for minimal soil disturbance.
On-Farm Learning Opportunities: We love to share our Homestead Farm (design and practice) in the form of on-farm classes, work exchange, and off-farm consulting; assisting others in their quest to live sustainably and in deep relationship with the natural world.
Small By Design: Our small scale operation allows for a more intimate connection to the land and animals. By caring for the farm as a 'whole farm organism' we are able to support a landscape that is vibrant and regenerative.

Butter, Yogurt & Cheese Making Class
Thank you for a great class, I really enjoyed it and learned a lot. It boosted my confidence with using raw milk to feed my family and gave me the skill set I needed to continue on this journey. By the way, I made yogurt yesterday and served it this morning. YUMMY!! I also have the fromage blanc hanging in the kitchen as we speak. So far so good!!! Today we make butter!
