We encourage farm visits, relationship building and education. The more you learn about how food is produced in America, the more you will want clean, healthy nutrient dense food like we raise! We are very confident in this fact, so we have an open door policy - we are happy to show you around the farm so you can see exactly what we do and how the animals live.
We are happy to share with groups in other locations as well. We do this free of charge in the hopes of spreading the message of "buy fresh, buy local" in the surrounding couties.

Nothing quite like hands on experiance! Come join us for a few hours of processing chicken and really see how it is done. You'll be paid too - in chicken of course! We will begin about 10:00 AM and go for 4 to 5 hours depending on the amount of birds to be processed.
These dates are tenative for processing, but will likely be adheared to:
We will be taking a break during the hotest months of the year and not get more chicks in until the first week of July, so any further processing dates will be twoards the end of August and into October.
Farm Day is on May 18th, 2013. We'll be having tours, milk tastings, etc. from 1 PM to 5 PM that day, so come when you are able and we'll do a tour as a group gathers. No food is provided, but you are welcime to bring a picnic lunch and hang out and fellowship if you wish. Hope to see you then!
We will also have two other "scheduled" tour dates, based on how Farm Day goes.
Notes from 2012 event:
Farm Day is Saturday afternoon May 19th
where we have set aside time to open the farm up to all visitors who have any interest in what we are doing. It runs from 1 - 4 pm
and we will have at least two guided tours to take you to every area of the farm and go over the various animals we raise.
In addition to the tours we welcome you to spread out a blanket and enjoy some fellowship under the great big oak tree. We plan on having something special for the younger children to play on, and music for all to enjoy. We will also plan on having one or two booths for some complimentary businesses - Wildtree foods & Good Health Herbs - both have yet to confirm however.
The farm store will be open as well for any desired purchases.
(The event went very well, with approximately 100 people in attendance. Picutres will be posted eventually!)
