Preserving the American Heritage of Self Sufficiency
are a small family farm located in historic Stafford,
Virginia, South of Washington, D.C. and just
North of the city of Fredericksburg.
We are dedicated to preserving the heritage of self sufficiency through raising
small amounts of livestock and growing our own vegetables and fruit
trees. Our historic farmhouse is located on Aquia Creek, a tributary of
the Potomac River.
We raise poultry (chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese and quail), rabbits and dairy goats. We are members of The Livestock Conservancy . Our turkeys are Spanish Blacks and Standard
Bronzes, both listed as heritage breeds. Among our chickens are the
heritage breed Barred Plymouth Rocks. We also raise and breed the
egg-laying Black Sex Link/Black Star hybrid chickens. Black Stars are renowned for their egg
production.They lay lots of large,
brown eggs. When available, we sell fertilized chicken, turkey and duck eggs
for you to hatch at home. We occasionally sell chicks and adult poultry
for pick up at the farm. We raise rabbits for meat. Our rabbits are New Zealand whites crossed with white Flemish Giants. All of our animals are raised humanely.
