Raised to make a difference
We believe that we can heal the planet, feed the world, and celebrate the lives of our helpers.
Meet the "D"s of
Healing the damages done to our environment through hundreds of years of abuse is no fast and simple task.
To always be mindful of our goal for the future, we named the farm after our two boys.
These D's are our future.
We love having visitors to our farm. Sharing our land and our stories with visitors is fun and rewarding.
That being said, we do ask that anyone intending to visit the farm please make arrangements with us in advance. Unannounced visitors may be stopped at the farm gate if we feel that a visit at that time will jeopardize the health or safety of our animals, cause damage to our farm eco system, or interfere with our personal family time.
Please do not bring pets or other livestock to the farm.
During order pick-up
If you would like to take a small farm tour when you come to pick up your order, please let us know in advance.
We offer opportunities for small groups or organizations to visit the farm, either for tours or simply to enjoy the property and spend time with nature.
Contact us for more information.
What's in a name?
After people hear us speak about our farm and our animals for a short bit, one of the most common questions we are asked is, "Do you name, all of your animals, even the ones you are going to eat?"
Yes. We do.*
The follow-up question to that is always, "But doesn't that make it harder?"
We are connected to our animals. They have names and personalities and we celebrate their individual traits. Choosing names is a family task, and sometimes we even get classmates and co-workers involved.
As much as possible, we try to make the lives of our healing helpers happy and healthy. Giving them names ensures that we have a connection, and solidifies the promise that we are committed to their well-being.
*Except in the case of chickens, as we can't really tell most apart. Some chickens may still get names, usually based on specific physical traits, and occasionally based on behaviours or personality.
