Radically Traditional Farming, as God intended. 

My Story

The Homegrown Homestead is small farm on 1.8 acres in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. We FOCUS on Pastured EVERYTHING, GMO FREE, Pharmaceutical FREE farm. We offer seasonal produce, eggs, hatched barnyard mix chicks, raw honey, handmade herbal products, raw goats milk herdshares (coming soon!), and animal sales. We specialize in Kunekune Pigs and Nigerian Dwarf goats. On our farm we rotationally graze our goats on unsprayed pasture. We supplement their diet with no-spray hay, fresh herbs, tree trimmings and produce. We do feed non-gmo alfalfa pellets or a homemade non-gmo grain mix at milking time to treat our girls. Our Kunekune are rotated on pasture and moved 2x a day. We supplement their diet with no-spray hay, BOSS, fruit and veggies. We also have a pig compost area set up and they create all the compost we need for a year. Our chickens are pastured through 3 seasons and during winter they hang out in their large coop with a run. Our rabbits roam in a tractor for 3 months of the year eating fresh salad bar and we supplement their diet with non-gmo alfalfa pellets and homegrown comfrey. We use locally milled, US grown, non-gmo grain from Sunrise Farm in Stuarts Draft to feed our farm. We choose to only use grain for our goats if they are underweight, need more supplemental calories such as lactation or pregnancy, or to increase weight as bit before conception. NO conventional wormers are used as their Famacha color is monitored then if necessary we use Molly's Herbals and copper bolus. Our entire farm is offered free choice Icelandic Kelp, Sulfur, Baking Soda, and Redmond's Salt.

OUR GOAL is to produce parasite resistant, hardy, meaty goats that can thrive without a constant grain ration. Goats who kid easily, good mamas, easy to milk. We aim to raise friendly bucks who are safe with small children, and raise quality animals for breeding, meat and milk. 

The site will be updated Summer 2022 with herd pictures, available kids, pigs, rabbits and chicks for sale.
