It seems everyone is marketing “local” and “farm to fork” these days. But too often the farm is hundreds of miles away and produce is grown for the ability to withstand long distance shipping, not flavor. We believe food should be healthy and convenient, but it should taste great too. We grow heirloom and artisan vegetables that are as delicious as they are beautiful. Visit our online store for availability.
Our flock of heritage breed chickens roam free all day clucking, eating grass, chasing insects, and laying a rainbow of blue, green, brown and cream tinted eggs. Every hen has her own name and a personality to match. At night and on rainy days, these lucky hens hang out in the fanciest chicken coop you've ever seen. Grocery store eggs just can’t compare to the beautiful golden yolks and rich flavor of our farm eggs.
Nothing says tranquility like a flock of sheep grazing on a green hill. Our little flock of colorful Shetland ewes and their lambs are a beautiful backdrop for our farmstead - and they're practical too! The composted manure is a perfect organic amendment for our garden soil and Shetland wool fleeces are a knitter's dream. We sell the fleeces in our online store and ship to fiber artists around the country. Learn more about this ancient breed of sheep through the North American Shetland Sheepbreeders Association.
Stand still for a moment in the garden and you'll hear the distinct buzzing of honeybees pollinating fruit trees, berries, vegetables and flowers. Our resident colonies collect spring nectar from tulip poplars, black locust trees, and fields of wildflowers to produce a unique, flavorful honey that customers rave over. Red Thread Farm honey is lightly filtered and never heat processed, retaining all the "good stuff". Stop by our online store and order a jar today. You'll be back for more!
Life abounds on our farm! From ducks to bunnies to Mali, the 100 pound Great Pyrenees guard dog, there's no shortage of critters - all doing their respective farm jobs. Down by the spring-fed creek, we're trying our hand at cultivating eight different types of culinary and medicinal mushrooms. We love visitors and we're more than happy to show you around. Just call or message us in advance for an appointment.
