WELCOME TO FOREVER AND ALWAYS HOMESTEAD
Forever and Always Homestead is family/veteran-owned small scale diversified farm and homestead founded in 2015 by Robert and Valerie Weaver. We are located in Clayton, North Carolina. Here at Forever and Always Homestead we are passionate about our use of sustainable farming techniques which not only produce wonderful food and products for you and me but are also beneficial to our animals and the environment. To do this we utilize a rotational grazing method to ensure a major portion if not all of our animals diets consist of natural grasses and forages. For our animals which require additional feed supplementation such as our chickens and hogs we provide our animals with additional non-GMO feeds.
Our focus here at Forever and Always Homestead to raise grass fed animals for meat as wells as additional products. We raise laying hens, meat chickens, milk goats and hogs. We plan to further add meat goats and sheep to our farm/homestead in the future. Some of the breeds we chose to raise includes Nubian and Kinder goats, American Guinea Hogs and Freedom Ranger chickens. As for our laying hens we decided to have a mixed flock because we like having a mixed basket of eggs. It was important to us while choosing our animals that we considered rare heritage breeds and do our part to help bring back these endangered heritage breeds. This is why we chose the American Guinea Hog and we plan on adding additional rare heritage breeds in the future. For more information about our animals check the Our Animals page.
Forever and Always Homestead provides meat and eggs through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) membership. We also make and sell all natural goat milk soap. Additionally we occasional sell breeder and feeder animals. More information about our products and services can be found on our page "The Market".
