The Smithshyre was born out of the mantra, “Be the change.” Disenfranchised by the state of the current food system, we chose a different path, one of clean food and happy animals. All our animals are pasture-raised, fed raw organic feed and wormed herbally.
Our mission is simple, to help our community fall in love with agriculture so they will support it and protect it. Our goal is a seven-layer permaculture forest farm including fruit & nut trees, berries, herbs down to mushrooms – someday. We practice restorative agriculture, make our own compost and follow organic standards. Our produce is grown from open-pollinated, heirloom, organic seeds and never treated with chemicals. We offer “agritourism” in the form of farm tours, special events, and Goat Yoga.
While non-certified organic, we do consider ourselves an “actually organic homestead.” We really love what we do and we want to share it with our community.
