Many plants can only produce one crop per season.
Therefore they are grown outdoors in soil that has been
Here at Earth Song, we use strictly organic and bio-dynamic growing
First we prep the soil.
Earthworms are grown and released into the gardens to
naturally compost the existing soil.
We compost all available materials from the farm to
strengthen the soil quality each year.
Then we add a light coating of rock powder and ancient sea
salts mined in Baja, Mexico.
This re-mineralizes the soil adding around 90 trace minerals.
We plant only non-hybrid seeds so we can collect seeds for
the next year's garden.
We are also experimenting with bio-dynamic growing
Another technique, called “sonic bloom”, uses
special sound frequencies that “sing” to the
plants in tones that mimic song birds.
This stimulates the plants to draw extra nutrients through
Organic ? ....
Although we use natural and organic methods, we have no
interest in becoming “certified organic”.
With food now showing up on store shelves from all over the
world with “organic” stickers, what does
“organic” mean any more?
Is it just marketing?
Also, hauling food thousands of miles is not very
“green”, not to mention the loss of nutrition
compared to fresh local, vine-ripened food.
We would much rather have you know the people who grow your
food, so you can trust the source.
Earth Song crops....
Currently we have over 35 assorted young fruit trees in our
orchard and a grove of nut trees.
Other fruits include blueberries, raspberries, blackberries,
figs, goji berries, grapes and various wild edible berry
vertical strawberry growing system
We are growing over 3000 strawberry plants hydroponically in
a vertical stacked tower system. They are an everbearing
variety that will keep producing all summer, long after the
typical June-bearing strawberries are gone.
General garden produce includes beans, melons, squash,
greens, root crops, tomatoes, peppers, asparagus, rhubarb and
even edible flowers.
A variety of basic grains are grown such as wheat, oats,
barley, alfalfa and corn.
We are also experimenting with growing ancient "grain-like"
crops such as quinoa, amaranth, millet and buckwheat.
In addition to the traditional produce and flower gardens, we
grow many culinary and medicinal herbs for making our
extracts, salves, teas and other herbal products.

Chickens... Our chicken flock
includes around 80 black Australorp, Red Star and Golden Buff
hens laying huge, abundant eggs. They are truly “free-range” having access
to fresh air, sunshine, natural woodlands and organic
pasture. Customers are telling us they are the best eggs
they have ever tasted!
Goats... Currently we have eight
milking dairy goats (Nubian, Alpine, LaMancha and Oberhasli) along with many kids
born this spring. The Nubian babies are soooo cute with
their floppy ears! The milk is delicious and nutritious.
From what we've read, goat milk is more digestible and better
nutritionally for us than cow's milk. We also use the milk
to make kefir, cheeses and goat milk soaps.
Go here to find more information about our Raw Goat Milk Herd-Share Program.
Let us know if you would like to try your hand at milking or
helping to gather eggs!
At Earth Song Farm, we feed our animals Organic, “Soy-Free” and
Non-GMO Feed, so that our eggs, chicken and goat milk are
the best we can offer.
We want you to know why, so you can make informed choices on
what you feed your family (follow the link above).
“You ARE what your animals
Rabbits... We raise mostly
Californian, New Zealand and Silver Fox type rabbits for
meat. Rabbit is a white meat, similar to chicken in taste,
and is actually the healthiest, most nutritious meat there
is. It is low in calories and fat, but higher in protein,
vitamins and minerals. Read more about the health benefits
of rabbit meat here.
We also sell our own brand of custom rabbit food, proven to

Ducks... We have a more rare
heritage type duck breed called Welsh Harlequins. The males
look similar to a Mallard. We also have Khaki Campbells, a similar breed that is more common.
These breeds do not fly or migrate. They are known as a good meat duck, but we just
like them for entertainment and the large eggs they provide.
Cows... We raise a smaller breed
of cow called a “Dexter”. They are kind of like
a big puppy dog when they are young. We raise them 100
percent grass-fed, which is the natural diet for a cow... no
grain ever! This makes their meat healthier, more nutritious
Custom Feeds... Need a source of
good feed for your animals? We have organic, non-GMO, soy-free custom
feed for chickens and goats at a reasonable price. We
also have our own “Earth Song” custom rabbit feed
blend, known to produce many proven winners at the fairs.
