Welcome to
Beavertides Farm

We are so happy you’re here.

Here on our farm we sustainably raise sheep, goats, and about a million honey bees. Around the homestead we keep chickens, guineas and geese, milk our sweet family cow for raw milk in our kids breakfast and grow enough vegetables to keep our pots full throughout the year.

Honestly, it’s kind of magical here. Magic works so much better when it’s shared, and we’d love to do that with you. 

Come learn about keeping bees, eat the most sustainable meat you can find, learn about homesteading and spend some time with us.
