Our Farm

We have a little bit of land in rural Arkansas and are making the most of it. 

We started with some beautiful chickens to lay beautiful egg. We moved to delectable pickles from our own cucumbers, perfecting pimento cheese and glazing amazing local pecans. And pork is on the way!

We believe in being kind to the animals in our care. 

The chickens have spacious coops and large ranges that we rotate regularly

to maintain access to fresh pastures.  We provide grain to

supplement the greens and bugs they find for themselves.

The pigs are rotational grazed and encouraged to act like pigs,

wallowing in the mud, rooting in the earth and enjoying the sunshine.

We invite you to our farm and look forward

to hosting folks for brunches and farm days.

And Us
