When the Jarvis family left their suburban community and purchased a sixty-year old, 4 acre estate, they had no idea what adventures were ahead of them. They decided on raising chickens but knew they needed a dog for protection of the flock. While researching the different breeds, they fell in love with the Great Pyrenees. Little by little, through trial and error the farm has grown and evolved from providing food for just the Jarvis' to now sharing and selling some of their overflow.
They even deliver locally as to help people eat better. As they continue to work the land that God has given them, the entire family welcomes you to the farm to see and experience the patience and rewards of farming.
In the summer of 2016, Makayla worked on a horse farm where she earned $1000. She wanted to know the best place to invest her money. After discussing some options, she decided to put a portion of her earnings into raising chickens and selling the eggs. Today, Makayla offers small quantities of multi-colored eggs from the farm. Quantities range seasonally.
Eggs sell for $6 per dozen. Deliveries can be made in 27703 and other areas depending on location.
In early 2017, our family took a big step on the farm. We purchased two baby piglets. It only took seven months for them to exceed 400 pounds! We processed them through a USDA plant, kept some pork and sold the rest to family and friends. In November 2017, we did it again. Now, you can get in on natural, farm-raised pork sold by the quarter.
Due to the Coronavirus' run on supplies, Jireh Family Farm only has 1lb. hot sausage available.
