It really all began when we wanted to create our own compost for the vegetable gardens. We first started with the chickens, but they did not provide quite enough composted material, so a small flock of sheep was acquired in 2003. Over the past few years it has become an integrated system with being able to provide the nutrients for the gardens from that which is produced by the sheep. We are just pleased to know the animals live a good life, and that we can provide healthy, humanely raised lamb and poultry. Great taste is our goal, achieved through our animal husbandry principles that include treating our animals humanely, feeding them chemical-free hay and feeds, and allowing them to mature naturally. As said by our customers, our lamb is the best they have ever tasted.
In addition to raising chickens, sheep, a few occasional pigs and produce, we operate Jay’s Tree Care. Jay is considered the “Tree Guy” by many and has a special knack for climbing the tallest of trees imaginable. The tree business includes other opportunities such as fire wood and wood chips.
