The Farm:

Happy Earth Farm takes our responsibility to be good stewards of this land very seriously.  We take the time to do a critical analysis of our soil, fields and outbuildings to make certain we are doing things effectively, humanely and sustainably.  We believe that living closer to land is best, but we also recognize that not everyone is in the position to do so.  It is our pleasure to provide to those who wish to eat well, but do not have the ability to have their own working farm. 

 Happy Fields:

We take great care to raise our crops as naturally as possible.  Come visit and you will find a flock of guinea fowl roaming the fields, eating pests, thus acting as a very good alternative to chemically controlling bugs.  Happy Earth Farm is sensitive to soil health so we are proactive with crop rotation and the use of beneficial cover crops and "green manures".  We select the most nutritious plots of earth to nurture the produce that will be gracing your table. 

 Happy Eggs:

Our laying chickens are considered part of the family.  Unlike warehoused chickens that produce most of the eggs found in the grocery store, Happy Earth Farm chickens have a spacious coop with easy access to their fenced-in yard.  We spend hours watching them because they develop distinct personalities, making their interactions thoroughly entertaining.  Fabio, our resident rooster, keeps a watchful eye on the coop and his prized laying hens. 

 Our layers’ primary diet is the highest quality  soy-free organic feed available.  We also supplement their diet year round with the “less than perfect” veggies from our own growing fields.  Naturally, the layers also feast on the bugs and other goodies they find while roaming the field!

 Happy Chickens:

Mass producers of chickens stack their birds in warehouses, force-feeding them in cramped quarters and unsanitary conditions. Factory raised chickens are liberally administered antibiotics to increase body weight, spur on rapid growth and to treat the inevitable diseases brought on by their squalid living conditions. 

 At Happy Earth Farm we raise our chickens the way nature intended: out in the open fields.  Our birds are hand fed twice daily, receiving the highest grade of soy-free organic feed.  Their time on the farm is spent wandering the fields under the blue sky, while enjoying the country air.  From the time they are born to the time they are processed on site, they enjoy a life of freedom, which virtually eliminates the release of stress hormones.   The end result is a more flavorful, healthy and nutritious chicken. 

 Happy Turkeys:

One of Happy Earth Farm’s greatest joys is when the holiday turkey day-old poults arrive in July.  We look forward to months of getting to know these large personality creatures.  Our turkeys are cared for in the exact same way as our broilers’: high quality feed, pasture raised, plenty of fresh air, sunshine and humane care.  We begin taking reservations for our holiday birds in July and sell out quickly. 

 Happy Cows:

Happy Earth Farm has added cows to our farm family!  We now have both red and black angus roaming the pastures.  Naturally they are as spoiled as the rest of the animals around here so they receive only the best.  We will offering grass fed beef within the next year so stayed tuned!
