Flying J Farm

The farm dates back to 1840 when the farm house and old barn were built. These have been beautifully restored and the house serves as a B&B. Visitors are always welcome but please call for an appointment. There is a market on the farm where you can purchase out organically grown products including grass-fed beef, maple syrup, eggs, and produce.

The Flying J Farm is 250 beautiful rolling acres including 100 acres of woods, three streams, a small fish pond, a 6-acre lake, pastures with cows, horses, and chickens, three vegetable gardens, a five acre food forest with fruit trees, berry bushes, and nut trees. Our philosophy is to "Live 'til you die" and restore the land to provide healthy food for ourselves and our customers. We are extreme environmentalists who live what we preach, make our own fuel from waste oil, provide our own fertilizer with animal waste, make our own lumber from our trees, heat with renewable wood from the forest, and eat mostly our own food.

You are welcome to visit anytime, just make an appointment. For a list of our products and other opportunities including farm stays visit our website flyingjfarm.com

You may not be able to see it but the smoke from my furnace says the wind has shifted, now from the north. Ice falling. Now about tomorrows market. Just heard the Granville market will be open unless there is a level 2 emergency. I will plan to be there unless there is more than 3 inches of snow, more than I would have great difficulty pulling my cart from truck to school, where the market is.

Gun shy. I was having this conflict, should I go to the market this Saturday or stay home. I have a lot of beef, maple syrup, and eggs to sell to people who really need these, some of whom I have heard from. On the other hand it seems every time I venture out in this cold something bad happens. I went to Acres in the cold and my car quit on the interstate (biodiesel jelling), $230 to get towed home. Got it fixed and took it out to pick up some things from the store and a tire broke (original with my 1984 car). My truck will start but only if it is on the block heater for at least 4 hours (what happens if it won't start after being in the market?). Of course here on the farm, my skid load won't start, but my Kabota is working fine as a back up. So this morning the Market master emailed me saying the market is cancelled for this Saturday, Jan 6 and my conflict is over. See you the following Saturday, Jan 13. Farmer Dick

Farm market tomorrow. Yes, I will be there, look for the Flying J Farm. I need to talk with you about the metabolic approach to cancer. I will have lots of clean grass-fed beef, maple syrup (great stocking stuffer), eggs, garlic, onions. If you want extra of anything, please let me know. If I don't see you, you are on my bad list! no, just kidding, have a merry Christmas Farmer Dick

Went to the woods to map out the next sap line, coming back I was worried Ruby, my dog might go out on the frozen lake so called her, next thing I saw was Ruby running toward me right across the lake. We may be skating on it in December, earliest I have seen it frozen. May be in for a cold winter. Tomorrow I will be at the Granville indoor farm market with lots of 100 percent grass-fed beef, maple syrup (makes good present), our free range eggs, onions, and garlic. I will also bring the Winter book, "The metabolic approach to cancer", stop by, let's talk. Happy Day, Farmer Dick

Ok, as you know, I get helpers from around the world here at the Flying J Farm and I love it, the picture shows the countries where they come from. As you can see all continents. I love it, love culture and diversity, we have it here. Since our beginning in 1998 we have had 66 helpers from 17 countries. They bring new friendship, culture, language, and food. I feel so rich to have them here at the farm. I am thinking about my next need for helpers which will be for maple sugaring in February. If you know someone who might be a good fit let me know and I can start the application process. Thanks. Farmer Dick flyingjfarm.com
