We are attempting to be as organic as possible in growing our crops using minimal pestisides and using organic
techniques such as beer traps for slugs, wise watering and alternative pest control such attracting benificial predators.
We purchased 10 chicks in the spring of 2004. We have added more hens since then. Danielle and Nathan love
the chickens and spend many hours observing them. We currently have eggs for sale from our hens and
occasionaly have started hens for sale.

KittyHawk that went to College with her at WSU.
Danielle is our chief puppy caretaker and socializer and chicken wrangler. Nathan helps in the care of
both the dogs and chickens.
