     Located at 112 Manners Rd and on the southwest side of the Neshanic River we call
     our farm Neshanic Pastures.  The main focus of our operation is raising cattle, pigs,
     and chickens on pasture.  We also produce grass hay and honey.  In our farming
     operation we employ ecological practices and wise stewardship to produce foods of
     exceptional quality without the use of any synthetic chemicals.  We are selling pasture
     raised beef, pork, chicken, and eggs.  We sometimes have for sale grass hay
     for horses, sheep and cattle.
     A goal of our farm is to make optimal use of local resources (sunshine, air, water, soil,
     compost and living organisms) as provided by nature.  But we sometimes need extra
     materials for making compost and building soil fertility.  Contact me if you have horse
     manures, leaves from shade trees, grass clippings, wood chips, or old hay to donate to
     our compost pile.  We are also looking for saw logs for our Woodmizer Sawmill.  
     We can utilize logs from many different tree species suitable for making lumber for
     use on our farm.
