Farm Products and Services We Sell

We sell pasture raised beef, honey, garlic, other vegetables, and manure. We also board horses and consult on beekeeping, gardening, and small-scale farming. Here are brief descriptions of what we offer:


HONEY FOR SALE AS OF JANUARY 17, 2017
We raise bees for honey. Our wildflower honey is sold in one pound plastic squeeze bottles and half pound glass jars. The flavor is excellent and you can be assured that it is all pure, raw honey that we extract and bottle on our farm. We are offering two sizes. A one pound plastic squeeze bottle ($8) and a half pound glass screw top jar ($5). We can ship up to four one pound bottles in a box or up to six half pound jars for the same priority mail shipping price of $7.50. So, for example, if you buy one one-pound bottle it will cost $15.50 ($8 + $7.50). If you buy two one-pound bottles shipped in one box it will cost $23.50 ($8 + $8 + $7.50).

We ship using priority mail so your order will arrive in just a few days. To order, just click on the appropriate "add to cart" button on the right (if you don't see any "add to cart" buttons on the right, you are probably on a smart phone. Just scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "view web version" and the side bar and top tabs will all appear. Prices include priority mail shipping.

WE ARE SOLD OUT OF BEEF
We raise Black Angus steers. They live on pasture all year long, 24 hours a day and eat grass and hay that we buy from local farmers. We do not label our meat as "grass-fed" because we keep our steers "trained to the bucket". That means that several times per week, we put a little sweet feed in a bucket and shake it. The steers come running for it. They love it! We do this so we can always get them to come to us, in case they ever get out of the pasture, need to be examined or treated, or we need to lure them away from some danger. Our animals are not fed hormones or antibiotics. Our meat is butchered, vacuum-packed, and frozen at a USDA inspected facility. We sell our meat by the quarter. 

WE ARE SOLD OUT OF GARLIC AND SHALLOTS FOR 2016
 We raise wonderful garlic, elephant garlic, and shallots that always sell out very quickly. See this POST.

WE ARE SOLD OUT OF VEGETABLES FOR 2016

Depending on the year and season, we grow other vegetables for sale. In recent years this has included heirloom popcorn, winter squash, and potatoes. All of our vegetable crops are grown using the practices and products approved by the National Organic Program. Any exceptions to that will be clearly stated.

NO CURRENT BOARDING OPENINGS

We also board a horse or two. They share the pasture with our  two mini-donkeys. This is the perfect setting for your older gelding. He will get lots of personal care every day, have free access to pasture and a barn. We may have an opening in 2017.

MANURE IS AVAILABLE

Several times a year we have fresh or aged mixed horse and donkey manure available. Depending on the season, it will have wood chips and hay mixed with it. Because we use this manure in our own vegetable gardens, we buy only local hay and ask the farmer about all herbicide use to avoid any persistent herbicides that could damage our crops.

 CONSULTING SERVICES AVAILABLE
Glen is a former extension agent and horticultural researcher. He has over thirty years of experience assisting others with growing fruits and vegetables commercially and over fifteen years experience on our small farm. He can build just about anything, including all our outbuildings and barns, chicken tractors, and fencing. He would be happy to share his knowledge with you as a consultant for pay or trade. Jeanine is available for paid consulting jobs outside of the state of North Carolina.
