Our farmstead is natural & holistic.

We naturally raise many critical & heritage poultry breeds. Our birds are allowed to range freely on pasture as they would naturally; treated with pure freedom not commonly seen. They are pasture & pond raised for their entire lives.

We also raise English Angora rabbits for their soft wool. Occasionally we breed them. We discovered that some people are confused about how we get the wool from our bunnies & goats. We want to make it very clear that we DO NOT Kill our bunnies for their fiber, nor do we do them any harm! More details on how we gather the wool can be found on any wool listing in our shop.

Our feathers are from humanely raised birds who live outside 365 days a year free ranging on pasture the way Mother Nature intended. Our animals are raised holistically & organically. When they are not eating bugs, grass & other tidbits they find while foraging they enjoy organic feed that we special order (visit our website's Resources section for our suppliers).

Our products are only scented using organic essential oils. Conventionally scented products can contain formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, phthalates, and parabens. You wont know this because the label will simply say "fragrance" If it isn't an essential oil or flower water, it is a chemical. These volatile organic compounds (VOC's) contaminate the air & can irritate the eyes, nose, throat, & even be the cause of your headaches! "Fragrances" potentially expose you & your family to toxic chemicals like acetaldehyde & formaldehyde (think: embalming). Over 70% of what is put on the skin is absorbed by the skin & into the bloodstream within minutes! Odds are if you can't pronounce it & you wouldn't eat it, you don't want it on your skin or "freshening" your air.

We never use chemicals. We are earth friendly, eco friendly, & animal friendly. There is no such thing as a "work week" It is a "work life" this is our work - this is our life. Life on the farm doesn't stop & we must care for it 24/7. It is beyond a job it is a lifestyle that we wish to share. Yes you can find REAL Natural Products - you can find them here!

Please support your local farmers. Without our farms, we are nothing!
