Announcement    Welcome! My humane products exceed the weak USDA Organic standards. Did you know that something can have the organic seal yet contain chemicals? Giant companies are always pushing for weaker organic standards. The USDA allows hundreds of non-organic additives in certified organic foods!

All of my feathers are from my own lovingly raised birds who live outside 365 days a year free ranging on natural pastures the way Mother Nature intended. My beautiful birds are raised naturally & holistically. When they are not eating bugs, grass & other tidbits they find while foraging they enjoy certified organic feed that I special order. None of my feathers are plucked from live birds. My sweet birds feathers are cruelty free, no kill, naturally molted, etc. I've been raising my feathered friends for many years & have collected a lot of amazing feathers as a result.

My English angora rabbit wool is from my very own adorable fluffy bunnies who are raised outdoors & enjoy our lush pastures in the spring. They are fed all natural herbs & veggies that I grow right here on my Eco-family farm. They all have all sorts of toys to play with & ample amounts of hay from my own chemical free pastures. I do not deny my beloved angora bunnies the joys of life in order to make maintaining their coats easier on me. My primary goal is for the mental & physical health of each bunny. Besides hay, veggies, herbs & apple wood my bunnies are fed organic feed that I special order.

My eclectic shop is a reflection of what I do on my farm. Every item is listed with consideration to the impact my actions create on future generations...

I currently do not accept custom orders or provide coupons. What you see listed is what I have & my prices are already as low as possible.

About

Running Bug Farm "Better Than Organic" Eco-Friendly, Humane, Non GMO

All of this began with a desire to eat real wholesome organic foods. The more I shopped around & the more I learned about our food system the more alarmed I became. Like most folks the first step (aside from growing my own) was getting chickens.

From there things sort of took off. I always wanted my own land. My husband & I spent six years traveling around trying to find something we could both afford & use. Most properties either had houses that were crumbling or lovely homes with useless land up the side of a cliff. Eventually we found our home in West Virginia. This is our first home & it is a dream come true!

For the six years we spent searching for this place I continued naturally growing our own food without the use of chemicals or fertilizers (other than the lovely poop from my own naturally raised critters) & sourcing only certified organic seeds. I also learned about culturing my own foods. At first it was a struggle to find organic livestock feeds. With hours spent searching on line, I eventually found New Country Organics in VA. I have been a loyal customer ever since.

I currently raise an assortment of beautiful birds, fluffy English Angora rabbits, & a darling Jersey dairy cow. I also have several frisky house cats, & even more barn cats (one can never have too many cats).

Many of my wonderful animals are selected according to their status on the Livestock Conservancy list. I choose endangered breeds & raise them. When you support my farm, you are directly helping me keep these domestic livestock animals from becoming extinct.

My products exceed the weak USDA Organic standards. Did you know that something can have the organic seal yet contain chemicals? Giant companies are always pushing for weaker organic standards. The USDA allows hundreds of non-organic additives in certified organic foods! FYI, organic is Non GMO. GMO's are not allowed in certified organic. This is one of many reasons why I only buy organic. Organic also insures I am not consuming crops grown with sewage sludge, irradiation, fracking waste water, genetic modification, synthetic chemicals, synthetic fertilizers, growth hormones, & more. Unfortunately when you buy a product who's only claim is that it is Non GMO, it can still contain glyphosate & the above mentioned chemicals. Glyphosate also known as Round Up Ready is used in Non GMO crops as a desiccant to help dry out crops such as wheat & other grains. Monsanto (now owned by Bayer) encourages it's use. When used as a desiccant, glyphosate is not washed off. If you want to avoid a toxic life, go organic. Not only is it better for your family & pets, it is also better for the environment & the workers. Nothing speaks louder to a business than how you chose to spend your money. If you buy it you support it.

All of my feathers are from humanely raised happy birds who live outside 365 days a year free ranging on pond & pasture the way Mother Nature intended. They are able to engage in natural behaviors. My wonderful birds are raised holistically & humanely for their entire lives. When they are not eating bugs, grass & other tidbits they find while foraging they enjoy certified organic feed that I special order. None of my feathers are plucked from live birds. My birds feathers are cruelty free, naturally molted, etc. They never live in cages, have their beaks clipped or any other barbaric conventional treatments.

My amazing angora rabbit wool is from bunnies who are raised outdoors & enjoy my lush pastures in the spring & early summer. They are fed non certified organic herbs & veggies that I grow. They all have toys to play with & ample amounts of hay from my own chemical free pastures. I do not deny my adorable angora bunnies the joys of life in order to make maintaining their coats easier on me. My primary goal is for the mental & physical health of each bunny. Besides hay, veggies, herbs & apple wood my bunnies are fed organic feed that I special order.

I grow a variety of all natural no spray, no chemicals, Non GMO fruit trees, berries, heirloom vegetables, flowers, herbs, & cotton all from certified organic seeds, plants, & trees.

I thank you for stopping by & for supporting my Eco-Farm, I couldn't do what I do without you.
