We started our farm in 2018 on a small rented property. In 2019, we purchased five acres across the road in Sunshine Valley with a house, garage, and a few small, rundown outbuildings. With the help of some friends, we moved our chicken coop, all of the chickens, geese, and what few goats we had. We converted the garage into a barn, milking parlor, and workshop, and fixed up the rundown structures and fences. Gradually, our farm has grown with the help of friends, neighbors, and fellow farmers who have been generous with their knowledge, support, and time as we've begun this adventure.
Our farm has now grown to have many many goats, hundreds of chickens, a donkey, sheep, geese, alpacas, and our sweet, friendly dogs who are the enthusiastic greeting party when you come through the gate. We have also expanded to include another property down the road with greenhouses and gardens for food production and educational spaces and a market to sell local food and products from local and regional producers.
We offer milk, cheese, eggs, vegetables, meat, flowers, herbs, and fiber products available at various times of the year. Contact us to learn more about product availability, milk shares, our CSA program, or plugging in with other farmers in the area!
Finally, we strive to keep our work equity-focused, and wish to include all of you as our community in ensuring we can collectively provide food to those who need it. Through our mutual aid fund, if you would like to pay a little extra than the suggested price, that money goes directly to getting food to someone else who needs it. You can also contribute to our CSA Mutual Aid Shares. Additionally, during the peak agricultural season, each week we donate a set percentage of farm revenue to BIPOC farms/nonprofits working to address structural barriers and inequities for BIPOC farmers. If you wish to donate, as well, we include links to do so directly on our social media, or you can give extra through your purchases!
We have a lot of work to do--both here on this land and in how we understand justice and equity in food systems--we hope you'll join us.
