What We Do
Pasture Raised Hogs
We raise a combination of heritage breed Berkshire and Berkshire/Yorkshire cross. Pigs are born on the farm and grow up here with ample room to root, roam, and just be a pig.
Pasture Raised Chicken
Our chickens are purchased as day old chicks and raised on pasture which makes for a great tasting bird with wonderful texture in its meat.
Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats
Nigerian Dwarf Goats are well known for the fat content of their milk. Our does are registered through the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA) and are bred here on the farm. Doelings and bucklings are typically sold in the spring and price depends on factors such as eye color, markings, and polling.
Molasses also known as sorghum syrup is an Ellis family tradition that goes back over 75 years. Sorghum cane is grown here on the farm and then harvested in late fall and cooked down to make a sweet great tasting syrup that can be used for a variety of cooking needs.
