Start, or Grow Your Apiary with Treatment-Free Bees
All Natural Treatment-Free Bees
Dexter Cattle are one of the only animals that we know of that finish extremely well on 100% grass!
If you are looking like many others, for a sustainable way to raise a healthy and wholesome meat, without the use of grains, the Dexter breed of cattle is a great option for your family farm. You may have heard about the “Dual Purpose” Dexter cattle breed…
Let us tell you more… Our criteria for selection of registered Dexter stock includes gentleness, mothering ability, conformation, udder, feet, and overall health and history of each individual animal and it’s predecessors.
When we select a a bull for breeding, we have a long history and knowledge of what and where that animal comes from. In many cases, we can show you pictures of dam, grand-dam, great grand-dam, and great-great grand dam. You can be confident that we are selecting where it truly matters, so that your future with Dexter cattle is the best it can be.
Dexter cattle on our Kentucky farm also have the following traits:
One of three colors:
Black, Red, and Dun
Each Dexter color can vary based on a subset of colors
Polled or Horned
Horned Dexter cattle, hetero-polled dexter cattle, and homo-polled Dexter cattle
A2/A2 Milk Protein

Chondro and PHA FREE

Dexter Cattle for Milk
If you are looking for a true dual or even tri-purpose breed of cattle, there are many within the Dexter breed that meet this expected role.
We feel blessed to have found a breed of cattle that finish extremely well on %100 grass, produce a large amount of milk per pound of body weight, and are docile enough that a family farm or homestead can benefit from these traits.

Dexter Cattle for the Family Farm
Dexter cattle are a perfect small breed of cattle for the family farm – Docile Cattle – Lead Trained Dexter Cattle
Small cattle for the family farm are becoming more popular all the time! Dexter cattle are a great choice because of their smaller size, but also because of their level of docility and gentleness.
We have personally had experiences here in Kentucky with lead training or milk training Dexter cattle which are 2 years or older (without ANY prior training or handling). We are talking about animals who have always lived in a herd environment, and in a matter of a few hours are basically lead trained. While this may be somewhat of an exception, it is EASY to lead train and milk train a young dexter calf or cow.
We often have our children and family around these cattle working with them in various ways. They are still larger than a dog, but we feel that Dexter cattle are a refreshing and viable option for a family farm cow.
As you can see to the left, children love to work with these young calves and help train them. Lead trained Dexters are the best family cattle we know of. We would love to get you started with a Dexter cattle starter herd or even a single Dexter calf.
Treatment Free Honey
All natural – “Treatment-Free” – Wholesome!!
One day years back, a swarm of bees seemed to have come out of another dimension and congregate right in front of our eyes. With the help of a close friend, we offered the bees a home, and they decided to stay. (-:
Over a few seasons, that one little swarm of bees became a sizeable treatment-free apiary nested here in our community.
Every time that we see a swarm of bees leave our own apiary, at first glance, it would offer the opportunity for disappointment, but then as we remember how our own treatment-free apiary got started we offer up gratitude as we watch the swarm of bees head out for a chance at landing in a new home, with a new family. We hope that they find you at just the right time. Nature has a way of constantly giving back, and to that, we say… thank you!! How richly we have been blessed by these beautiful and amazing creatures! We hope that you will feel the same way.
Naturally Raised Surplus Raw Honey
We call it “SURPLUS” because it’s ONLY what the bees don’t need.
We feel it a pleasure to work along side of these amazing creatures and receive all of the many blessings which are provided through them. With all of the talk about how the honey bee is failing, we take responsibility for striving to support the well being, and success of this truly united effort. We look to the honey bee as a pattern of oneness or unity. The way we long to live… in community as one, working together for the good of the whole. We receive as a gift only that which the bees don’t need for their own family to continue on.
