Here's a glimpse of our small farm. Currently we have Java chickens and have just started
with Narragansett turkeys. We also enjoy the company of our rescue donkeys, Jack and
Jenny, who patrol the pasture on coyote watch.
Our Java chickens provide us with more than just
eggs. Besides being great entertainment, they
provide us with help in the garden by eating bugs,
digging in the dirt, and giving us chicken poop that
we throw on the compost pile and turn into fertilizer.
We even use their eggshells in the garden to help
prevent blossom end rot in tomatoes.
Java chickens are "dual purpose" birds - meaning
their utility purpose is to provide both meat and
