Farming with Draft Power

Draft animal power is used in some of our operations on the farm. Our team includes Ozzie, a 15-year-old Belgian gelding draft and Tucker, a 10-year-old Belgian draft.

Canning

Jane cans many of our fresh vegetables and fruits, while others are packed for the freezer. We are always guaranteed an adequate supply during the winter and throught the year.

Vacuum Packing

Vacuum packing ensures the freshness of our produce. We've had to increase our freezer space over the years to accommdate our growing yield and a couple of years ago, our 600 lb. potato harvest was more than we needed and we sold some.

poultry

We raise our own poultry including free-range turkey and chicken. All butchering and packaging is done on the farm.

pork and beef

Both pork and beef are raised free-range in movable paddocks so that they always have green grass to eat. We process some of this meat into sausage and bacon (See Our Freezers).

Baking

Jane bakes breads and muffins as well as snacks like granola bars which are all packaged to preserve freshness for year-round consumption.See More
