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.

Water Kefir -A Homemade Probiotic Soda

Water Kefir is a homemade Probiotic drink that is quick to assemble, takes only 24-48 hours for the first ferment and after a 2nd ferment period (optional) it becomes a carbonated health drink that can help you to curb those sweet cravings! Water Kefir is a simply amazing alternative to sodas, it works well for those on a restricted "dairy" diet  whether from lactose intolerance or those of us that suffer from High Cholesterol & it is good for your digestive tract much like yogurt is. Kefir consists of lactic acid bacteria and yeast existing in a symbiotic relationship. A great microflora combination with the benefits that are similar to those of milk kefir (dairy kefir) but the average person will be able to consume larger amounts of it due to its water base.
