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.

We also have a flock of Finnish Landrace sheep that provide us with fiber and protein. We hope to offer 1/2 and 1/4 lambs (16 month hogget) in the Fall.

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.
