Butte Mountain Farm

Jackson, California

Butte Mountain Farm is a diversified small farm. We raise various vegetable crops, chickens for eggs and stewing meat, sheep for wool and lamb meat, and beeswax candles are made. We raise extra plants for sale each year, such as herbs, vegetable and flower seedlings. Butte Mountain Farm is located 3 miles east of Jackson at about 1800 ft elevation. Most of the land was cleared years ago for cattle grazing and it was used for that purpose when we purchased it in 1997. At that time the cattle were removed and sheep were brought in. No sprays, herbicides nor pesticides have been used here since we've owned it. The sheep are Cormo (Corriedale x Merino) and a few have a bit of Rambouillet mixed in so the fleeces are wonderfully soft for handspinning. The chickens are fed a certified organically grown feed and eat greens from the vegetable growing area.The flock is fed a Soy/Corn-Free feed so eggs and stewing birds are available that do not contain any soy nor corn.
