Who We Are
Nova / Seger
April 12 - 2016
Jan and Dave Cooper started Natural Homestead in spring of 2011 after moving across country from Colorado. In the first two years they took an uncared for, over run piece of land and turned it into a functioning, thriving and lively little homestead. They acquired goats, chickens, guineas, pigs, turkeys and rabbits and continue to add to the family.
Along with the livestock they have three faithful dogs, Nova, Ditto and Dawson. Nova became a part of the family in January of 2012. They adopted her to become a livestock guard dog (LGD) and fell in love with the Great Pyrenees breed. Her ability and contribution to the farm have been unequaled. Ditto, Nova's daughter, was born July 13, 2013 and has grown learning from her mother. Now, over a year later, Ditto has become a fierce guardian and a remarkable mother. We purchased Dawson in November of 2013 from Legacy Farms and he's as sweet and charming as he is handsome.
In December of 2012 I moved from Arizona to live with my parents. My name is Madeline and I'm the youngest of three. On August 3, 2013 I gave birth to my first child, Oliver. Through the months of my pregnancy my mom worked to bring me up to speed on the homestead. I've learned a great deal from her and my father and we continue to learn and grow together. Basing much of our nutritional and spiritual values on Nourishing Traditions and Dr. Weston A. Price, the four of us are slowly but surely removing toxic chemicals, foods and practices from our lives. Everyday we strive to expand our minds and hearts just a little bit further through the knowledge, wisdom and experience that comes from growing, harvesting and raising our own food.
Here at Natural Homestead we are dedicated to growing natural, GMO-free, chemical free, unadulterated produce. We take extra steps to amend our soil with minerals, goat and chicken manure.
We also sell eggs and meat from free-range, chickens and turkeys. Pastured pork is available now.
We raise goats who spend their days browsing happily in their sunny 3-acre back yard.
Our primary goal as a family is to eat the healthiest, most nutritious food possible, provide our animals with the happiest, most nature oriented lives possible and to revitalize our land in the process.
