We are a family of relatively new farmers, raising food in a sustainable and healthy way for ourselves and our community.
We operate our family farm in two locations: Statesville, NC (near Love Valley ) and Chuckey, TN. Our farms are a mix of pasture and hardwoods. The Tennessee farm is a total of 60 acres and the North Carolina farm is 25 acres. Our animals are healthy & happy, graze on pastures, forage on forest floors, and build their own nests and homes.
We raise grass-fed Red Devon beef cattle and poultry for eggs and meat. We also raise fiber animals – alpaca and North American cashmere goats whose fiber we sell and also donate to our community. We also have a herd of mini-donkeys which we are training for use in an Animal Assisted Therapy program to help children with autism.
Meet Baba Looey, our WhyNot Farm donkey who is not only our farm mascot but also the farm super model. He helps make our visitors feel welcome and their farm visit enjoyable.
We have four livestock guardians (Great Pyrenees) – two at each farm. Our Guardian dogs are the farm pals who help keep watch of all of our animals. They are soft and lovable, but really do their job well.
