Our new adventure here at Jordan Farms…….

We hope all our followers, friends, new customers, and frequent customers, have had a wonderful, yet safe Independence Day weekend. Here at the farm, we had an enjoyable weekend with friends and family coming over; however the weekend still consisted of working and tending to the animals. We found a lost sheep on the back side of the pond and spent part of the weekend nursing it back to health. The little Barbado ram seems to be doing just fine and will need some more vitamins before he is let back loose to roam with his friends.

Some of you all know that things have been really busy here at the farm. The addition of the Buffalo and the expansion of the hydroponic greenhouse has been more than enough to keep us busy.

We are excited to announce the hydroponic greenhouse will begin in operation next week. The hydroponic greenhouse will consist of lettuce, tomatoes, and a wheatgrass fodder system for the sheep and buffalo. What is a fodder system? Fodder systems in general are designed to grow nutritional food typically for animals. However we are designing our fodder system to grow organic wheatgrass for extraction of wheatgrass juice for human consumption. What is not used for human consumption will be used as feed for our hoof stock. It is very beneficial to sprout and grow grain for animals, especially with the increase of prices of commercial feed.

There are so many benefits in wheatgrass for human health as well our animals. The benefits include; lowering blood pressure, stimulating the thyroid gland (weight loss benefit), fighting tumors, neutralizing toxins, and when applied externally can reduce and sooth inching.

With that being said, the future for Jordan Farms includes expanding into the organic vegetable market, expanding our exotic hoof stock, maintaining our Merriam Turkey flock and exiting the ‘commercial’ rare breed chicken market. However as several generations before me – I will always have chickens on the farm – just not in the current volume; nor importing as we have in the past.

We have several interested parties and we intend to divest our poultry stock in the coming weeks. We have not imported in the past year, so some of our stock is somewhat ‘dated’ (not old in age – just stating the breeds have been in US), however the majority of what we own are from Sandy at Orpingtons Galore. Therefore the buyer will receive essentially new blood to incorporate into their breeding program. We are planning on selling the flock in large groups and are not interested at this time in splitting off in small numbers.

If you are interested in buying all of our stock – including chicks – we would make a package deal of $ 6,000. That’s a small investment that can paid back in less than 3 months! We will be posting a list of the adult birds below.  There are 150 or so chicks and juvenile birds in the brooder that will be included in the package price.  These are not listed as we are hatching chicks each week and the count changes.  

In closing – I want to thank everyone for being wonderful customers and friends, all around the globe. We have truly enjoyed our poultry friendships we have created in the past years and we hope if you are ever in the area – please stop by. We thank you for your support and look forward to what the future holds.
