Down to Earth Farm
Down to Earth Farm has a small flock of pastured dairy sheep and laying hens. They strive to keep the sheep on pasture year-round but do supplement with alfalfa pellets before and after lambing. They also feed high quality local hay to the sheep in the winter. No animal by-product feed, hormones, or antibiotics used. In the summer, the sheep rotate through the pastures and the chickens follow in mobile coops, fertilizing the pasture and breaking up the parasite cycle in the sheep. They offer raw sheep milk at $5/quart or $9/half gallon. They offer eggs for $5/dozen. Delivery into Asheville or Marshall upon request. You are also welcome to come out to the farm to pick up milk. Call for availability of the milk and/or to order. See other places where you can find products from this farm.
