A Holistic, Educational, working farm situated in a pine forest - environmentally focused.
NaVera Farms Environmental Commitment We as residents abide under a strict standard: To use environmentally safe products for all of living needs on our farm, around our bees, livestock, gardens and orchards. No Chemicals, Pesticides or Insecticides are used. This includes all household and personal products and cleansers. All lights out at night. We, our animals and all living creatures of the land deserve a good night sleep the way nature intended, quiet with a dark sky filled with stars! This farm has no outside post lamps that remain on all night. We honor night the way it was intended resulting in perfect harmony for all life. Entertainment is a gift from all of our animals naturally. Cable TV and Satellite do not exist on this farm. All Cordless phones have been donated to those who desire such devices. Going from Point A to Point B on the farm is done by foot with the occasional assistance of a wheelbarrel. Farm Truck used only when absolutely necessary. Respect for air quality in and around the farm is mandatory. Strict measures are taken to avoid cross contamination to and from the farm. We are a Holistic Farm which means this farm is a healing farm to serve the purpose of not only education for all but more importantly to allow the energy of nurturing to remind our inner child as well as our little children what it feels like physically in our hearts to connect with Mother Earth, sharing the unconditional love exchange with animals and plants. Growing plants the way Indians originally taught their young. All NaVera Farm animals are provided with a safe shelter from rain, heat and cold. We are pleased to provide each with a safe home.
Many of our farm animals as well as our home pets have been rescued or adopted. Our farm animals include Nubian Dairy Goats, Dairy Cows, Quarter Horse, Donkeys, a Llama, Alpacas, Minature Shetland Ponies, Minature Donkey, Pekin Ducks, Tom Turkey, Hampshire Pigs, Assortment of egg laying hens, and Roosters. We grow an assortment of herbs, fruit and vegetables to support our own sustainability. ... Our Raised Bed Gardening Program helps many who may be new to raised beds. Learning about compose and the function is also a good education for all.
