Committed to Local

We appreciate all our fans...but we remain fiercely local when it comes to our products.  Holiday turkeys available for on-farm pick up as well as our pasture-raised livestock.  

We do not have an "on-line farm store".  Instead we prefer our customers getting to know us and old-fashioned human contact.  Imagine that?!


Heritage Holiday Turkey


ONLY A FEW MORE AVAILABLE!  Serve a heritage turkey at your traditional holiday get-together.  Our Holiday Turkeys are available by pre-order only.  Deposits are taken beginning in June.  $20 will reserve your whole bird.  2018 turkeys will be $6.99 per pound.  Reserve the approx size you are interested in.

Heirloom Vegetables


When taste matters...heirloom veggies grown naturally can not be beat.  Beginning with the June Farm Tour -- we will have tomatoes, peppers (sweet and hot), summer squash, and much more available for purchase -- also ask about local produce stands that carry our vegetables, eggs and other farm products.

Pasture Raised Livestock


Patient Wait raises hardy heritage breeds:  Narragansett Turkey, Nigerian Dwarf Goat, chicken and waterfowl.  Turkey Poults available for $9 each (10 or under) or discounted for orders of 11+.  Goat kids, Chicks and Goslings available during breeding season.  Give us a call for availability.

Q:  What are your business hours?

A:  Both farmers have J-O-B-S so we prefer that company lets us know before they show up like your brother-in-law.  We recommend you plan on attending the Upstate Farm Tour.

Q:  Do you do school tours?

A:  Yes!  We love them.  Please call for available dates.
