Animals

Chickens – Egg layers

Egg layers are pastured raised on rotational grazing following the sheep for any parasite control. They are also fed a soy free whole grain mix that I grow and make. Our breeds are rhode island red for our brown eggs and ameraucanas for green tinted egg shells.

Sheep

I  raise Katahdin hair. They are raised pasture and hay no grain. They graze in front of our egg layers in our pasture rotation. Katahdins are great awsome mothers,great parasite resistance, no shearing, and great meat make them a all around great animal.
