Both conventional crop farmers and specialty crop farmers are welcome. Please email to Bantafarm@outlook.com, so we can talk about potential opportunities to work together. Thanks!

Besides selling Ostrich chicks, we also sell ostrich, Rhea, peacocks, and Emu hatching eggs for those of you that want to incubate and hatch your own ostriches on your farm. Ostrich and emu hatching eggs for sale are of the highest quality!
Our hatching eggs are sent by priority mail and should be to you within 3-4 days after that breed hatching date. They should be set within seven days of our shipping them. The ideal holding temperature before setting is 60 degrees. As incubation times vary due to the incubator temperature, we recommend placing the eggs in the incubator during the middle of the week if you are hatching these in a classroom.
We guarantee the Ostrich Chicks and Fertile Eggs to be true to breed variety and to arrive in good condition.
We sell top-quality, farm-fresh fertile hatching eggs. All you need to do is place them in an egg incubator and see them hatch!
The quality of the hatching eggs is excellent and we have recorded up to 98% hatch rates in our Sure hatch Egg incubators using these fertile broiler eggs.

Approximately 17 week old feeder pigs, gilts and barrows, for sale. All pigs were born between Sept 15-20, 2021. The sows of the pigs are Large Black and the boar is a farm cross, likely York / Duroc and maybe some Hampshire (he was bought as a feeder pig and kept intact due to his awesome demeanor).
Pigs wore born and raised outside on pasture. The pigs have only had non-GMO grain. They are trained to 2 strands of hot wire fence and if they know it's hot, they'll stay in one strand. They are rotated and respect a "dead" single wire while transitioning wires to a new paddock.
We have a full time Intern position remaining for the 2022 season. The position could run for 3-8 months, beginning as early as April, depending on availability. This is a good learning opportunity to work with a well-seasoned grower and small farm crew, gaining experience in all aspects of operating a small-scale (roughly 2 acres in cultivation) certified organic vegetable and cut flower production farm including routine crop planting and care, harvesting and marketing, and preparations for our annual farm tour event. We strive to maintain a fun work environment as we build appreciation and understanding for the ways in which we combine environmental stewardship with providing good food for our customers and our community.
Update 11/16/21: Gus found a home!
Gus is a 2 year old Great Pyrenees/Anatolian shepherd mix. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines. He is a big boy at 96 pounds. He was pasture raised and reared with goats on a working farm since birth.
I have owned Gus for about 10 months and he has continued to guard goats and work as a herd protector. He came into my life unexpectedly when I purchased a herd of goats on the condition that I take the dog as well. He and my other LGD just simply don't get along and Gus is out of a job here. We became fast friends and I'm committed to finding him a new owner who loves him as much as I do. A hobby farm or a homestead would be the perfect set up for Gus!
