Cair Paravel is a self sustained, family operated farm. They grow and make their own food and try to impact the earth as little as possible. The owners are Whitt and Martha, and they are so kind and warm. They take such great care of the plants and animals. Whitt used to be an executive chef and they’ve lived all over the country (including Hawaii), but they’ve chosen to live off the land and it’s absolutely beautiful.

Whitt and Martha have sheep, goats, ducks, chickens, turkeys, and guinea fowls. They make their own cheeses, lotions, and soaps from the goat’s milk. Martha spins her own wool and makes beautiful blankets. They bake delicious breads using the protein rich duck eggs. They let us see just a little bit, and it was so wonderful. We all got to go into the hen house and the little one even got to pick up a freshly laid chicken egg. She said it was still warm.

Our eggs from the hen house. The brown one and the grey ones are from the chickens. The larger, white one is a duck egg. The little one loved her egg so much, she took a nap with it next to her :)

Thank you so much, Whitt and Martha for giving us a tour of your beautiful farm and lovely life. It’s a lifestyle I aspire to.
