AJ’s Happy Chick Farm an 140 acre mixed farm using only sustainable methods and humane, loving animal husbandry. In addition to having many garden beds and both a blueberry field and apple orchard we are the home to a wide variety of fowl including specialty chickens, peas, guinea, turkey, and ducks as well as cattle, some of which are rescues here for retirement only, sheep, dogs, cats, a rescue cockatoo and giant Sculcata tortoise named Shelly,
In an effort to become as self-sufficient as possible we produce a wide variety of products all of which meet our own picky standards before becoming available to the public. Susan has been canning for over 15 years and each product on the shelves is time tested in its deliciousness and any ingredients needing to be purchased such as sugar is certified organic.
June through October our farm-stand is open to the public Sunday-Friday (3:30pm -5:30pm weekdays / 10:30am -3:30pm on Sunday’s) and we often have very special animal guests on Sundays for those who like to learn and pet. 🙂
Brian also offers milled lumber both dimensional and unique slabs for countertops harvested from our woods for beneficial management.
Super sweet Finn sheep (breeding or pet stock only all meat lambs spend their time here and can be purchased after processing) as well as Maremma livestock Guardian puppies (every few years) are available to qualified buyers.
AJ’s Happy Chick Farm works with Kingdom Maple (Albany, VT) to produce syrup from our certified organic sugar bush and this year, 2021, the farm will have the hayfields and pastures certified as well. Our plan is that the year 2022 will bring the certification of our lamb and other meat products as well as completing our fully off the grid solar arrays (we are already 1/2 way there!)
