We are the Machen Family. There are eight of us! We are conservative Christians who desire to glorify God in all we do. We homeschool as well. About ten years ago some of us were battling digestive issues, and God led us to try goat's milk. It has worked for us, and we have been raising dairy goats ever since. Over the years, we have expanded our family farm which now includes beef cattle and lots of chickens as well. We usually have around eight cattle, over twenty-five goats, a hundred laying hens, and one hundred and fifty broilers!!! During the Spring, Summer, and Fall we raise broiler chickens in batches by the hundreds. We feed our goats and chickens all-natural, Non-GMO feed from a mill in western Virginia, and our beef cattle are grass-fed. We also bale and pickup our own hay, usually around fifteen hundred square bales a year. We enjoy playing music together, photography, singing, hunting, fishing, swimming, sewing, camping, and reading. Have a blessed day!
