It never dawned on me why we have Easter eggs, until we became farmers. It’s because we have so many of the blasted things we decide to color and hide them around the yard. Feast or famine with the eggs, before winter solstice you cherish everyone by spring you’re hoping for someone to show you a new recipe. Someone please send me a new egg recipe!!
Welcome to Turkey Feather Farm.
We are tucked away in the mountains of Williams Oregon. The name Turkey Feather Farm comes from the feathers of wild turkey living around our farm. Feathers were worn by Native American Chiefs to symbolize their communication with Spirit and to express their celestial wisdom. In the Native American Indian culture, feathers represented the power of the thunder gods along with the power of air and wind. The most commonly used feathers in smudging are Turkey. They are regarded as having cleansing and healing properties. So revered was the Turkey at one time in America’s his/her story that it was very nearly picked as the emblem of America.
When we started the farm we wanted to provide a healthier life for ourselves. Sustainability has always been our goal. We began with a small flock of chickens and a garden. Now we have grown into an organic farm with many animals . We strive to be responsible stewards of the land, always trying to create health and balance in the soil, the plants, the animals and the human being.
