Newe Start Farm came to be six years ago when Rick, a former litigator, bought Sheri, a former art professor, a small flock of sheep! Our primary goal is to be as self-sufficient as possible in both energy and food. We produce much of the electricity we use and heat our house with wood cut from our land. Our homestead has expanded from sheep to include chickens, cattle, two draft horses, some turkeys, a couple of pigs, an angora bunny, three meat rabbits used for breeding, and a large garden, not necessarily in that order. Our animals are pasture-raised, and we are rotationally grazing in an effort to protect our land and maximize its production. We also press sweet cider in the fall and make hard cider. We make yogurt, butter, and a variety of cheeses. We also freeze, can, dry, and lacto-ferment much of our produce and are working on creating a year-round garden. When we produce more than we need, we sell the extra. Currently, we have lovely fleeces and roving for sale. We are also happy to offer USDA-inspected, pastured-raised lamb as well as maple syrup, to the public. Newe Start Farm is a grand learning experience and a labor of love. It is a wonderful, happy place run by two old lovebirds with occasional help from their city-loving children.
