Farming Status and Plans
Farming status:Full time
Description of farming status, plans, and practices:
We are a family (Parents along with two adult sons) run organic farm. We raise Shetland sheep along with Shetland crosses. We have Tamworth/Heritabe black pigs along with Isa Brown chickens. We are presently renting our farm location (7 years). Looking to expand into something with a commerical kitchen, so we have begin to sell our homemade pies, muffins and holistic/human grade animal treats.
We are flexible on our farming plans. We really want to find an immediate placement on a piece of property. We have tons of expierence with all types of agriculture (except cattle and emu/ostrich), but we would like to be able to keep a small flock of our sheep (8-10).
