Helios Farms provides pastured dairy, meat, eggs, and poultry through private farm shares. If you want to get milk from our farm, purchase a share of one of our dairy cows and then hire us to board and milk your share of the cow. Each cow’s milk is bottled separately as “Single-Moo Milk” with the name and picture of your cow on the label. For more raw milk info: www.realmilk.com
Cows get only pasture and alfalfa along with mineral supplements (redmond salt and kelp). Water is pure from spring fed sources. We sour (clabber) some of the milk and then soak hog and chicken grains in clabber to release the nutrients. Hogs are moved in the hog garden year round. Chickens tour the pastures in their egg-mobile with daily foraging stops.
In addition to dairy cow shares, we offer hog shares, chicken shares, egg shares, and beef shares. We have dropoff points in Roseburg, Cottage Grove, Eugene, and Corvallis and are expanding.
Our animals and humans are soy free, hormone free, pharma/chemical free. The chemicals we use on the farm are baking soda, vinegar, and ascorbic acid. Pre-milking teat dip is diluted manuka honey and ascorbic acid (vitamin c). Post-milking teat dip is clabbered milk. We use no antibiotics. We treat issues in ruminants with ascorbate mash; in hogs with clabbered milk and ascorbate.
Our mission is to reconnect people with the beauty of a local pristine food supply and to support the decentralized production of food. We encourage farm share owners to visit and participate in the farm and review all our methods which advance traditional farming techniques with life-positive farming practices. We are a family-friendly farm.
We are members of the Weston A. Price foundation and many of our farm share owners follow the WAPF dietary guidelines.
