Happy Hen Farm started as a homestead when we bought the land for our family in 2013. The land is east of Raleigh, North Carolina in the central to eastern part of the state. Like most of the farmland in our area, it was used for growing mainly tobacco and soybeans. We had a plan of building a house, moving out to the land, and growing and raising as much as we could for our family, while hopefully doing our part to regenerate the land that had been stripped by traditional monoculture farming. We started planting wildlife plots, our own garden, and tended to everything on the weekends. It took a little while, but we eventually moved out to the farm and started really living our homestead dreams. In 2019, we decided to start sharing the products that our family has enjoyed so much with other families.
