Here at The Smithshyre, we consider ourselves to be “An actually organic (non-certified) homestead”. We never use chemicals or altered seeds. Everything here is clean and pure, just the way nature intended.

Our mission started out simple – clean food. Disenfranchised by the current food system, we were basically vegans eating a small portion of chicken, turkey and eggs. Then the opportunity came along for us to learn about growing vegetables and we thought, why not proteins too? We started off with a few laying hens, then got brave with chickens and turkeys. Once we harvested them and realized we could actually make food that was healthy, humane and delicious, our path became clear – buy a farm and “be the change you seek”. “The Smithshyre” was born.

All of our livestock are rotated throughout the farms pastures and orchards. Pasturing our livestock makes them, our land and you more healthy.

In the past few years, we have branched out to include Nigerian Dwarf Goats for milk. We make cheese, yogurt and ice cream to share with our friends and family. Someday, we hope to have a dairy to share with our community. Kidds are available for sale, typically at 8 weeks, depending on their size and weaning status. In an effort to keep the kidds happy and help socialize them, we’ve started Kitsap Goat Yoga! Yes, it is as fun as it sounds. To keep us in milk, we breed for “freshening” every 6 months, which means BABIES twice a year! Kidds are ready to do yoga shortly after birth and retire from the class when they are no longer interested in playing. See our Goat Yoga page for more information and a link to tickets.

We also raise Finnish Landrace sheep or Finn sheep. Their fiber is very soft and likened to merino. We sheer 2x yearly and offer raw fleece for sale. Perfect for felting or spinning into yarn. Typically, we carry, white, dark and light rosegrey, brown and the every beloved, true black. See our “fiber for sale” page for more details or email Roni at thesmithshyre@gmail.com.

We keep 2 large gardens, over 1/4 acre of production and have 2 small orchards and a berry patch. We are in a continuous state of converting the property into a permaculture forest. These means there are rows of fruit trees being grown in various locations throughout the property.

  1. So glad to know there is an alternative to supermarket produce and that you are close and local! Congratulations for all your very positive and progressive endeavor!

  2. Welcome, neighbors!

    I’ve stopped by several times for eggs and last night bought two chickens and will buy more to help make your new venture a success. I’m impressed by your energy, attitude and friendliness. The property seemed lonely for quite awhile – but no longer. You guys and the animals fill the space with positive vibes.

    We are cheering for your success. We live right down the road and could not be happier to see everything coming together. I’m looking forward to seeing all your plans come together this Fall. Say hi to Avalanche for us!

  3. I’d send this via email but this is all I have. I keep forgetting to tell you but a few days back I was going by the farm late at night and there was a red car with its interior lights on. I took a chance, stopped and found it unlocked so I turned off the dome light. You might want to remind whoever owns the car to ck for all lights out to avoid a dead battery.

    I look forward to seeing the new goats!


  4. We also purchased an old farm last year that has an old barn that I would love to restore! The realtor gave us an approximate date of 1900 for the buildings, and since the ONLY nail used in it are for the siding, I believe that is pretty accurate. I am very interested in how you managed to ‘lift’ the sagging corner posts to place new footers under them. We have extensive damage to each post and will need to do that to keep our barn. Any advice you have for us is greatly appreciated!!

    1. Hi Mary. We’re excited you want to restore your old barn!! It’s a lot of work, but totally worth it. For us, we needed to shore it up first, then remove the floors and see the damage below. We used pecker poles to replace the supports and bottle jacks to raise them up. The bottle jacks are surprisingly strong and could lift anything. We’d recommend doing as much of it yourself and keeping any old wood to use for other projects. Let me know if we can be of anymore help. It’s an incredibly exciting thing to do. BEST OF LUCK! And thanks for reaching out.

  5. Thank you for this link…I love following your homestead adventures on Facebook…I plan on coming to do your goat yoga when the weather is warmer…so far I have one friend who is interested also…hope you and your furry friends have a healthy and joyful new year

    1. Thank you Joanna and a Happy and Healthy New Year wish for you as well. We’re glad you enjoy what we share. We love what we’re doing and want to share it with those that are interested. I’m excited you’ll be coming to a yoga class, it’s just so much fun. All the laughter, makes me just so happy. And the kidds just love it. We’ve got a heater in the barn now, it’s not “hot yoga” but it’s pretty comfortable. Glad you found a buddy to take your picture when you’re getting loved on by the babies. Looking forward to meeting me. Be well.

  6. Hi ,

  7. I am just getting into raising Finn sheep and have two ewes. I am looking for a ram lamb to add to our flock. Do you have any from this years lambing season and if so are you interested in selling one?

    1. Hi Elias, we wether our rams at about 8-10 weeks after lambing early Feb. So we’d need to know about a request for a ram lamb in early Feb. Finn are wonderful creatures! I can connect you with another breeder in the Pullyaup area if you are still looking.
