We are a family of 4 living our dreams in the Appalachian mountains of Western North Carolina. We left Auburn, Alabama (our hometown of 15+ years!) to start our small farm on just a few acres outside Burnsville, NC. Our goals are to live simply, love madly, learn quickly, and produce as much of what we need here on our farm.
We grow a variety of vegetables, berries, dwarf peaches, and both edible and medicinal herbs. We raise chickens for eggs and meat as well as rabbits for both meat and fiber. You can find TS at the Yancey County Farmers Market just about every Saturday and Lori at many of the local craft events selling handmade soaps and body products.
6/17/17: We now have NO-SPRAY strawberries ripening daily! You can purchase pints from us at the Yancey County Farmers Market on Saturday mornings or at the Erwin, TN Farmers Market on Tuesday evenings. If we are sold out there, please make an appointment to pick some up at the farm. Sunday and Wednesdays are great days to get strawberries from the farm. email@example.com
5/8/17: Thank you to everyone who came to see my rabbit exhibit and hear my presentation at Mother Earth News Fair this past weekend! I had an amazing time and really enjoyed meeting so many great people! TS will be returning to the Yancey County Farmers’ Market this upcoming Saturday with chicken and eggs for sale. Homemade canned chicken stock is now available for $10/quart pre-order from us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org I make the stock by slowly simmering our pasture-raised non-GMO fed chicken carcasses in fresh spring water for 24-36 hours. It is then strained twice and chilled until it turns into a “jello” state. I remove the layer of fat on top, then boil it up again and pressure can it in a new sterilized jar with new sterilized lid. I am super careful when canning and do everything “by the book” for safety.
