Pasture Raised Poultry from Our Family to Yours

Guard Geese to the Rescue!

Our trio of geese stand guard over our free range, pasture raised flock of Red Ranger broilers. Their presence protects from aerial predators and they deter four-footed creatures with their ridiculously loud honking! Check out this video to hear them sound the alarm, even though it’s only us approaching. Good job, geese!

The Pregnant Farmer!


Being a farmer: hard.

Being a pregnant farmer: Waaay harder!

Our Dexter Cows Move to New Pasture

Cows are really just about the easiest animals to manage… They respect the electric fence, they’re easy on the land, and they’re pretty laid back.

This video shows Jason moving our 3 Dexter cows from an old pasture space into another space, filled with tall and delicious greenery! You can see each of the 3 cows up close and personal!

Birthday Party Piglet

Perhaps the most fun we have around here is when we get to take our animals to schools, birthday parties, community centers, and other cool places. We love sharing a taste of the farm with others and kids just love the experience! If you’re interested in booking Spaetzle, our ducks, and turkey for a visit of your own, check out Our Farm to Your School page.

Check out this video of Spaetzle the piglet enjoying a birthday party and eating grass while wearing a party hat!

Homestead Dogs Frolic in the Grass

Of course the poultry, pigs, and cows are loving the nice weather and the lovely, tall grasses. But what about our 2 crazy homestead dogs? Watch the video and see…

Meet the Dexter Cows: Bull Johnny & Heifer Dani

It’s been a while since we’ve filmed the cows, so we thought it was a great time to reintroduce you! This video shows you how much Johnny had grown and we talk about how perhaps Dani is pregnant!

Excited Cows Come Running

This video was filmed in late winter, when the cows get really excited about greenery. Jason calls them over and they know that he plans to give them some fresh grass that has sprung up… So they come running!

Meet the Animals: Spotted Piglet & Her Siblings

This is another cute video featuring Half-Nose’s newest litter. How cute are they? Check out the spotted piglet… who we hope will be the next Farm to Your School visiting pig!

Meet the Animals: Cutest Piglets Ever!

This past week, Half-Nose  delivered a litter of cute little babies (including a spotted babe). The day after, another pig delivered her first litter, but since it was her first time as a mom, she wasn’t up to the challenge. Luckily, Half-Nose happily adopted her babies and is nursing away! Great job, Half-Nose!
