We are a sustainable and regenerative farm just outside Greencastle Indiana. We are a multi-species multi-product farm. Currently on the farm we have a wide range of animals, and are finding what works best for us, this environment, and on our land. Our farm began operations in December 2015 but we have been practicing permaculture (permanent agriculture), regenerative-sustainable agriculture for well over a decade. We have experience in suburban back yard while living in Indianapolis, and living in a tiny house with a small footprint on a 1/3 acre lot. We offer a wide range of products, services, and education opportunities. Each topic below also has its own page for more details.
Consulting – We offer consulting on a variety of topics from what we have learned over they years, including permaculture design for small scale urban/suburban plots to larger scale farm plots. We also invite people to see what we are doing and farm tours. We shear our own animals and invite people to attend and see how we shear the animals. A detailed farm tour can be 2-4 hrs while you learn about animals and permaculture techniques. Individual tours can be arranged as well. Scheduling is required for any tour.
Animals – We have a wide range of animals. We are currently developing a unique line of multipurpose sheep (wool, meat, milk, value added products), and pastured/forest pork similar to the Iberian pork of Spain. We have milk goats which we milk, as well as chickens, turkeys, alpacas, geese, ducks, and rabbits.
Products – Because of current Indiana food laws we currently do not offer individual cuts of meat for sale. We do however offer 1/4, 1/2, and whole animals to be processed however you like. We have produce, herbs, wool aka fiber, fiber tools, fiber dyes, eggs. We also have Maple and Black Walnut Syrups. Indiana food laws prevent us from selling raw goats milk for human and even pet consumption. Raw milk has lots of other uses such as soaps, lotions, and even natural spray application for fruit trees in a holistic orchard management practice.
