We have a great flock of heritage breed chickens and a handsome rooster named Dave.
Our birds free range and are fed supplemental organic, soy-free grain.
They're a great addition to the farm and help keep all of our plants free of pesky bugs.
We've had our flock of chickens since 2009. We raise Brahmas, Cochins, Barred Rock, Buckeye, Auracona, Orpingtons and one Maran named Loretta. Our chickens provide us with countless hours of entertainment!
We have a small flock of heritage breed turkeys. They're our pets and help with keeping bugs at bay.
They are Slate, Bourbon Red and Narragansett turkeys. Our tom, Cecil, looks after his girls, Irenie, Jasmine, Jazzy, Ruby and Soho.
Garden & Plants
We grow numerous plants and flowers on our farm. Calendula, comfrey, citronella and chamomile are a few of our garden plants. We also wild harvest from our property for Lisa's handcrafted, vegan botanical skin care. We have a great abundance of native plants that have many medicinal uses, such as yarrow, plantain, prickly ash and wild bergamot.
Silver Creek Springs is 19 acres nestled in a small valley with Silver Creek splitting the property in half. It’s an old dairy farm, homestead in 1895 by the Deja family. Part of the original homestead still remains on the property and is now used for housing our chicken flock. The 1935 dairy barn was dismantled between the years of 2014-2016. All of the usable barn boards have been reused on the property and at our other business in Turtle Lake, WI. The stone foundation will be used to support our future greenhouse roof. We also plan on turning the old milk house into a sauna.
We’ve been in the process of revealing the interior of the original log home, which is our main house. The 1960's Quonset style building has been renovated to now host our bicycle shop, The Creeky Wheel. The back half of this building is living quarters.
We have a large vegetable garden, which contributes to our goal of becoming self-sustainable. We also have a small flock of heritage chickens and turkeys. Throughout the property we grow medicinal plants, fruit trees, fruit bushes and native plants. These are harvested responsibly to be used in our natural, vegan skin care. We do not use chemical fertilizers or pesticides anywhere on the property.
