We are Ron and Sherry Brignac and we bought our first farm in 2015. We started with a few laying hens and some ducks We are now raising chickens, turkeys, and pigs on pasture. All of our animals live on pasture living a stress-free life and enjoying the outdoors like they were meant to do.
The chickens start in the brooder at one day old and at 3 weeks are moved to the green grass pasture where they roam within an electrified netting. The netting is moved as needed to give them green pasture. In addition to what they find in the pasture, we also provide CERTIFIED ORGANIC Non-GMO feed and freshwater. Providing them a true "happy life".
We also raise pigs. We farrowed on the farm for our first time in January 2022. Not the best time of year, but they did well. We also buy feeder pigs from other farms that range in weight from 40-60 lbs. They transition to their new home in a protected area where they can get to know us. They are trained to respect a "hot wire" and afterward are moved to the pasture to graze on grass, clover, roots, nuts, and whatever else they can root up. We also provide them with Certified Non-GMO Organic feed. The pigs are a joy to raise and have lots of personality.
We also have goats, a rescue donkey named Sam and a pet pig Piggles that Sherry rescued from another farm. Be sure to check our YouTube page to see the videos.
We enjoy our farm so much, fishing, raising animals, and just being in the outdoors. We work as a team in everything we do. Be sure to check out our FaceBook, Instagram and YouTube to stay in touch with what's happening on the farm. Sign up for our newsletter on our home page. Also look for the Farm tour that we normally have in the Fall. Happy Farming, Ron & Sherry
