Web Address: bakersgreenacres.com/acf/
Programs Offered: Raising heritage hogs is EASY! They are a bit harder to find (though getting easier all the time), but well worth the effort in ease of raising and quality of meat. At a Homestead Hog Harvest class you’ll get to walk the fields, see the sows and piglets and how we farrow outside, see the forages and pasturing options, and experience how pigs fit into a whole farm system. The class focusses on butchering and processing a Mangalitsa hog, but along the way you get to experience the whole farm and the farm family. Reserve your spot today! Contact us for details.
Mark, an Air Force veteran, and his wife Jill have been “farming” since 1995 when they planted their first small garden on the back of their lot in Great Falls, Montana. Since then they have added 8 children, many and various animals, and several moves to their experiences. They now farm with their family in Michigan on a historic 80 acre farm. They specialize in livestock, but believe in a traditional, permaculture system so that everything contributes to the farm ecosystem. That belief has led them into compost, biochar, vegetable and herb gardening, and meat and vegetable processing. Another part of that belief is that farming, though it can be intricate and academic, can be done by anyone on a scale that fits their lifestyle.

In May 2014, a few months before Robert left his active duty military service, we bought our house on one and a half acres in Johnston County, NC in preparation for our new life. It wasn't long after moving in we visited a local chicken auction where we purchased our first chickens and before we knew it we had rabbits and goats as well. We topped it off with a few more goats and finally we needed something to protect our animals so we got "Zeus" our Great Pyrenees the protector of the homestead. It wasn't until 2015 we felt this life truly was our calling and we decided we wanted to dedicate more time to taking our homestead to the next level. It was then we decided to begin incubating and hatching chicks to sell along with building chicken tractors for the local area. We also decided to specialize in Kinder Goats and become the fourth Kinder Goat Breeder in NC. While these two areas are our main focus we also plan to breed and sell rabbits, build rabbit hutches and goat pens, and begin our blog appropriately called "The Journal" where we will record our journey and share the lessons we learn along the way. We have loved the journey this path has taken us on and look forward to what the future will bring.
