About Heehaw Farms

What do you raise:
Goats

Farm motto or mission statement:
Affordable, good food

Are you open to visits or tours?
Someday in the future

How long has your farm been in existence?
Since 2007                        

Please share a brief synopsis of the history of your farm:
We started in the summer of 2007 with one buck and for the rest of the year, we looked for a doe and found one in 2008. Our original thought was to raise our own food off our own 19 acres of land and find a market for the extra.

Our first customer was International Grocery. When they closed, we formed a great relationship with People’s Grocery and a home for our product.

Heehaw Owners with Goats

All about the Goats

Which, if any, organic certification does your farm have? If none, do you use organic or conventional practices? Conventional practices.

Describe the type of grazing system you employ. (For example, do you rotate your pastures/rangeland? Do you use fertilizer or plant seeds for forage?)
Open range. Yes, we plant clover and other nitrogen producing plants for soil health.

When supplementing your feed, what type of feed do you use? Do you make an effort to avoid GMOs?
No

Do you feed your animals vitamins and/or use mineral blocks?
Yes

Where is your meat processed? What are your slaughtering practices?
Frankfort meat processing in Frankfort Kansas.

What would you like People’s Grocery Co-op shoppers to know about your products? What sets you apart?
We raise a humane animal for production. They are happy and healthy.

What vision do you have for the future of your farm and/or the future of food?
I would like to see a shift to a permaculture type system, or one that is close. The future of food is very good with the backyard type of food production and the excess can be marketed to stores like People’s and the Farmer’s Market. This will reduce some of the need for imported food. We also  need to eat seasonally and be able to cook the same way. Everybody can produce.
