Healthy Rabbits for Pets, Stock or Meat. We raise farm fresh rabbits without medication, hormones or antibodies.  We DO NOT feed pellets from the store.  We have learned via experience that rabbits on  pellets  ALWAYS butchered out with white spots on their livers!  On our current feed regimen I have noticed one spot among a butcher day of 20 rabbits; (but even that day we butchered some older non-producing does, so it was likely age & not feed-related!)  Our rabbits receive a mixture of dry oats and black oil sunflower seeds. We also supplement their day with fresh cut alfalfa and fiber-rich 'weeds' that rabbits naturally love (seasonal) or alfalfa hay. 

  

Did you know rabbits love to play?  Yes, aside of the mineral block, they also get toys like fresh apple and maple branches, and nature's 'ball'=pine cones! Oatmeal containers with the bottom taken out make the greatest 'tunnels' for our kits to play in... so if you have one on your visit, you can pick who gets an extra special playtime :)   


Good pets, but here's our plug about the benefits of rabbit meat:  Low in cholesterol, Low in calories, Low in saturated fats, High in protein,  All white meat, 100% of the RDA for B12

Chickens

Unsexed chicks $1.00, Juvenile pullets $4.00 Laying hen $10.00 

Eggs $2.00 a doz.

-----
Organic Eggs
Our chickens are fed a mixture of oats, corn and black oil sunflower seeds that are soaked over night. This allows for better digestion and absorption of healthy-beneficial enzymes produced during the sprouting period. Our hens also free range all day long so they are able forage for bugs,  worms and insects for protein. Because of this our egg composition is not like your ordinary white egg you can get at the grocery store. Our yolks are deep in color and the egg whites are thick, not runny. This allows them to be high in Omega 3.
Don't keep your egg cartons for golf balls!... bring them to us for 'recycling'!  




Alpine Goats

Typical regional pricing, call for availability of wethers, kids, milking does, or stud service (our buck, "Shadow" came from Marlee Farms of Delaware OH, and He's a beautiful specimen!).  

-----

We take pride in our herd and register our goats as members of the American Dairy Goat Association.

Our herd is disbudded, vaccinated, tagged, registered, dewormed and trimmed for success! 


We raise the Alpine breed of goat for their wonderful milk production. We make our own cheese, yogurt, sour cream and everyone's favorite:  Icecream! 


Tasty food comes from a healthy diet, and our goats have access to grassy pasture, fresh alfalfa and brush.  We also supplement with a favorite snack of oats & BOSS.


The benefits of grazing...

Goat meat is high in protein and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a unique and potent antioxidant naturally produced through grazing. Goat meat is very similar to the flavor of beef!

Mini Pigs

Mini Pigs in Fostoria, OHIO

Mini Pigs are a new adventure for us!  We now have enough paddocks to move animals around and so this became a great solution for our farm on many levels.  If we have too much goat milk or eggs... this is perfect supplemental food for our piggies.  Not worrying about a large pig stomping on my foot or getting upset and knocking me over is a relief with a Mini Pig.  Our Mini's are a mix of Potbelly and American Guinea.

Nigerian Dwarf Pygmy Goats

Nigerian Dwarf Pygmy Goats in Fostoria, OHIO

After a few years of begging... we gave in on the requests.  Andrew has a breeding pair of Pygmy goats.  He knows he needs to sell the babies, but we'll have fun with them until then.  (Besides, he can't knit them sweaters!)
