We are a small family farm in rural Vermont. We have 25 acres and we grow organic vegetables and berries. We have 3 alpacas, 3 nigerian dwarf dairy goats, and lots of ducks, chickens, guineas and geese (over 100 of them!). We are raising our two children to respect animals and to be aware of where their food comes from. We are getting ready to start milking our does and we sell our organic chicken and duck eggs at local markets, restaurants and at our farm stand. We are new at farming but very dedicated - we attend conferences and are members of the Vermont Grazers Association, the Vermont Llama and Alpaca Association and NOFA (Northeast Organic Farmers). Our goal is to keep our farm sustainable - we have a small energy efficient house with solar power, we compost and recycle and we practice green living every day. We keep our alpaca and goat herds small and manage our pastures organically by rotational grazing. Our animals are extremely well handled and well socialized. We spend a lot of time training them and gaining their trust. Consequently, they walk right up to people, accept touching, and eat out of hands. They are delightfully curious and sweet.
