Babbling Brook Farm

360 Hermitage Trl., Ellenboro, NC 28040

Babbling Brook Farms is a small animal farm raising pygmy meat goats, ducks, turkeys, and peacocks. We keep a few guinea hens, to keep down the bug population though the ducks, turkeys and peacocks help a lot also. We feed our animals grains scratch but also allow the animals to range feed. Because of this, we seldom have an insect problem. This year we are also starting organic farming techniques. We have been preparing ground according to organic methods using organic materials. We are aiming for a fall harvest of carrots, beets, radishes, and onions.
