We are certified organic by NOFA-NY Certified Organic LLC (a USDA accredited certifier) for our plants, produce, pastures,  beef, and eggs.  We are also Animal Welfare Approved for outstanding humane treatment of our cattle and poultry.

Our products are currently available at our self serve store on the farm and the Ithaca Farmers Market.  We try to market everything we raise no farther than 30 miles from the farm.     We are at the market every Saturday April-December and our farm store is always open.

  2. I watched a you tube video about raising Tamworth pigs and I was very impressed by the end of your video. I have plans to buy my own small homestead and was researching what kind of pork I wanted to raise. With your clips I know I want to raise Tamworth pigs. I have a better understanding on how to do many more things and thank you for all of your hard work.

  3. I was looking at videos about castrating piglets, most of them somewhat heartwrenching, when I came upon yours. Thank you so much. I then followed up by searching out your other videos. I really appreciate the time and care you take with everything you do on the farm. My daughter and I are in our first year of homesteading up in Northern British Columbia. We are as organic as we can be until we’re growing our own chicken feed (it’s hit or miss at the local feed store). I am very interested in making our potting soil from blood and feathers that originate here. You make mention of this in one of your videos. Do you have a how-to or can you point me to a “recipe”?
    Meanwhile, Kingbird farm, you are SO inspiring

    1. Thank so much! Castration is my least favorite task on the farm and I take it very seriously.
      Our compost mix involves mixing the offal, feather, and blood with straw and horse manure for composting. It gets turned at least three times over about two years. It is then screened to remove the bones(heads and feet). Very rich stuff!
      Cheers, Karma

  4. Hi! Great job you are doing with organic production. I am a poultry farmer in Ghana and I relish an opportunity to come and understudy what you to be replicated in Ghana. I actually have that opportunity to visit a world class organic poultry farm like yours to learn what you do. This will be sponsored by Ghana Climate Innovation Center in collaboration with UN University, Ashesi University and Ernst and Young. Looking forward to hearing from you.
