About Our Farm

Jubilee Family Farm is a diverse micro-farm dedicated to natural and sustainable farming. We raise heritage pigs, dairy goats, heritage turkeys, eggs, garden vegetables and fruits and have a small commercial kitchen. We are blessed to be stewards of this land and the creatures on it. Our animals are well cared for and allowed to express their natural inclinations. Our animals are not caged and have constant access to the outside, inside, sun or shade…whatever they prefer at that moment. We do not give routine antibiotics, steroids or growth hormones. We do not use pesticides or herbicides on our gardens or crops. We sell live animals, half or whole processed animals, wholesale and retail.

 

We Love Pigs!

We Love Pigs!

We feature a farrow to finish hog program so that means the pigs are born on our farm and live their lives with us until they go in for processing and then onto your table. Farm fresh pork is the best you will ever taste! As a Step 3 level producer in the Global Animal Partnership Animal Welfare program our pigs live comfortable, stress-free lives. We raise heritage cross breeds and feel this give us the best of all worlds as each breed lends its best characteristics to the offspring. Our heritage cross breeds are lean and meaty with excellent flavor. Pigs really are friendly, easy to handle and fun to have around! They eat a diet of grains, veggies, fruits and grasses; and enjoy living in family groups. They are quite social. Did you know that pigs get sunburned and they cannot sweat? Those are two of the reasons they like to wallow in mud.

Farm Fresh Eggs

Our laying hens are hatched locally and are fed a high quality local feed. Eggs are hand gathered, hand washed and hand packed just for you! We like a mix of varieties so we have different colors and sizes of chickens and your eggs. You may get brown, green, blue, white or olive colored eggs. There’s nothing as tasty as farm fresh eggs. Did you know that chicken hens are born with all of the eggs they will ever lay?

Goat Trip

Our beautiful herd (the proper name for a group of goats is a trip) of Nubian goats allow us to provide you with raw goat milk shares. The milk is sweet and fresh tasting. It makes wonderful cheeses, kefir and yogurt. Nubian goats are curious, gentle creatures who explore everything with their mouths! They are also quite social and live in family groups. Did you know that goats are actually picky eaters? And, they do not eat tin cans!
Raising Turkeys

We raise Heritage breed turkeys, which take 28 weeks or more to mature for processing. Raising turkeys is a long term commitment! Our turkeys are hatched right here on our farm from Narragansette (said to be the original Pilgrim’s turkey crossed with the America’s wild turkeys), Bourban Red and Royal Palm breeds. A neighboring farm provides us with Spanish Black, Blue Slate and Royal Palm poults. We get them when they are just a day or two old and they go into our brooding barn to stay warm and dry. Once the turkeys are feathered they can go outside where they need lots of room to grow. We continue collecting and incubating eggs over their normal breeding cycle. This means that we will have turkeys ready to process just about every week for several months, not just at Thanksgiving and Christmas. We hope you will enjoy turkey throughout the entire year! The picture at the top of our website is our Royal Palm Tom. He’s a beauty! Did you know…The fleshy growth from the base of the beak, which is very long in male turkeys and hangs down over the beak, is call the snood.
Our Crops

We raise a nice variety of Garden Fruits & Vegetables including tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, squash, eggplant, green beans, melons and more. We’re adding asparagus, berries and rhubarb this year, but they won’t produce until at least next year. We plan to attempt green house winter growing this year so we can offer a limited selection of local, fresh produce throughout the winter. Stay tuned!
