We are a small family owned and operated farm and ranch focused on Sustainable Agriculture through Holistic Management.
Our homestead is in the Tehachapi Mountains, and our products and programs can be found statewide as we work to bring our farm to you. We own a little over 200 acres and lease an additional 300+ acres around the state. We are completely 'off the grid' for power, water and more. Farming is both an Art and a Labor of Love, and we hope you get a taste of that labor of love with our animals and products.
We left a life in the city behind and became farmers unintentionally. But as things fell into place, the path became clear and we've since come to farm with intent. How our food is raised became extremely important to our family and we wanted to be part of the process and share this as an option for other families.
When you know better, you can do better. The more we learned and experienced the more we wanted to do our part. The part we each play is different for everyone, but we had an opportunity at hand to create, raise and offer products which essentially take a step back in time to the way farming use to be.
Commercial large scale production of food is needed to feed a growing population, but we believe in 'Bringing Back the Family Farm' for local, small scale agriculture which serves communities. Our farm utilizes "permaculture" which refers to a regenerative agriculture 'whole farm' thinking where everything is interconnected.
We raise miniature Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Highland cattle, poultry and waterfowl, Red Wattle heritage hogs and sheep, along with small crop production, honey bee hives, soap making from our milk and bees, candles, vegetable seedlings and pasture-raised eggs and USDA inspected meat. We are Licensed as a Nursery, Hatchery and Egg Handler.
Our passion is farming, and it's what fuels us to put in the long hours, struggle and dedication to rearing that baby goat as a pet for you, maintaining healthy animals, working through changing and unpredictable weather, and all the little things which make farming a tad more 'adventuresome' than the stylish magazines make it out to be! The highs are high and the lows can be very low. It is without a doubt one of the most rewarding and challenging occupations available, and we are so very VERY blessed by our amazing customers which allow us to farm for them.
THANK YOU for supporting our small farm! And remember - without Agriculture we would all be hungry, naked and sober!
