We sell honey, garlic, and aged donkey manure. We also board donkeys and consult on beekeeping, gardening, and small-scale farming. Here are brief descriptions of what we offer:
HONEY IS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT
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 offer two sizes.
GARLIC AND SHALLOTS ARE CURING NOW
We raise wonderful garlic, elephant garlic, and shallots that always sell out very quickly.
WE HAVE AN OPENING FOR ONE OR TWO DONKEYS
We also board donkeys. They share the pasture with our two mini-donkeys. If you have always wanted a donkey but don't have room for one at your place, board it here. We do the feeding and pick up all the poop, so you can just come over and enjoy it. Your donkey will get lots of personal care every day and have
free access to pasture and a barn.
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

former extension agent and horticultural researcher. He has over thirty

knowledge with you as a consultant for pay or trade. Jeanine is available for paid consulting jobs outside of the state of North Carolina.
