Darby Farm maintains natural pastures – pastures that are never treated with herbicides, pesticides or artificial fertilizers – and regularly rotate them to keep them fresh and healthy. Of course, the natural fertilizer the ladies leave behind certainly helps!
The girls are free to roam and forage as much as they like – we open the barn doors in the morning, and out they all go! We make sure there’s plenty of shade out on the pastures, and a ready supply of both clean, fresh water and our carefully formulated supplemental feed, but they’re free to come and go from the barn, and free to eat what they want, all day long.
In 2017, it was time to make the leap of buying a farm. Jeni and Daniel decided on 80 acres with a house in Union Mills, NC. Now as owners of the land they farm the potential for innovation has increased.
In late 2017, elderberry, an age old wellness tradition that Jeni had made since 2011, came into the mainstream of America. The opportunity then arose for them to plant, grow, harvest and produce Elderberry Syrup locally. Darby Farms Elderberry Syrup is now widely distributed throughout America. This inspired Jeni and Daniel to diversify the farm further to plant medicinal and food producing plants and trees in an integrated system with animals called silvopasture. The silvopasture technique is thousands of years old and merged with modern day technologies of electric fencing, water management and plant selection just might be the key to climate change mitigation. More healing products will be offered in the coming months.
