About Me

Welcome to my Sustainable addiction! I am a DIY addict, Wife, Mother and Grandmother.  I enjoy sharing my all natural recipes, cooking, cleaning, personal hygiene items, gardening and all things sustainable including my farming.  
We are a family owned, woman run small farm located near the Edisto River in Dorchester County SC.
Our farming operation consists of poultry, quail, eggs, dairy and meat goats. You can buy from us with confidence as we hold a permit from SC to sell Poultry and are also licensed as a Wholesale Egg Distributor.
 
Through our farming practices we provide for our community a variety of Poultry breeds, Heavy dual purpose birds, exotic and ornamental chickens as well as Cortunix Quail that are heat tolerant for our hot SC Summers. 

Whether you are looking for Farm Fresh Eggs, Fertile eggs for hatching (Chicken and Quail), hatchlings, grown birds or Dairy and Meat Goats (seasonal births) we have a large selection of beautiful animals.  
 
We also have Dairy Goats and kids. Current 2017 births so far are 5 kids Nubian / Alpine Saneen cross and 2 Nubian / Toggenburg Cross.

Soy & Garlic Chicken Breasts

Soy & Garlic Chicken is a quick to assemble dinner that wakes up your tastebuds. You can use any cut of chicken you have on hand, I used skinless / boneless Chicken breasts since this is what I already had in the freezer. The great thing about the breast meat is that it will not only cut down on your prep time, but also allows you to quickly convert the leftovers to a "salad" for another quick dinner variation!

Homemade Smoothies

What could be better than a Shake or Smoothie? Seriously! That rich creamy flavor that is sinfully delicious is hard to beat AND it is also hard to work off the calories if you get them from your favorite Restaurant.  So what are we to do? We make our own healthier version. Our homemade version comes in at just 167 delicious calories! Suddenly you are a super hero and your family will be asking for more because they do not know how good for you they really are :) We use fresh fruits & ingredients with no preservatives. Your body uses the nutrition and vitamins ~ they are not just full of empty calories. Did you know that a small Chocolate shake from McDonalds has 580 Calories?  That is a meal and it is packed with fat coming in at 25% of your daily value! Sonic slushies are better on the calories coming in around 172 for the watermelon but that is offset by the sugar 45,800 mg, and Sodium at 27 mg!
