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 of your cow on the jar. For more raw milk info: www.realmilk.com. In addition to dairy herd shares, we offer hog shares, chicken shares, egg shares, and beef shares.
Cows get only pasture and alfalfa along with mineral supplements. Water is pure from spring-fed sources. We sour (clabber) some of the raw 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.
We have convenient drop points from Roseburg to Portland, including Central Feed in Sutherlin, The Creators' in Drain, Coast Fork Farm Stand in Cottage Grove, New Frontier Market in Eugene, Main Street Market in Springfield, Jim's Fruit Stand in Corvallis, White Rabbit Bakery in Aurora, Know Thy Food Coop in Portland, and many residential drop points as well.
Our pastures, animals, and humans are soy-free, hormone-free, pharma- and ag-chemical free. The chemicals we use on the farm are baking soda, citric acid, and ascorbic acid and other nutrients. Pre-milking teat dip is ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and niacinamide (vitamin B3). Post-milking teat dip is clabbered milk. We use orthomolecular methods with animals and farmers and emphasize a balanced microbiome on the farm.
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 vintage 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.
