Plain & Simple: Family Farming is a way of life.

Published on November 01 ,2011 by Plainville Farms

Living near Amish Country and choosing a "plainer way of life" gives John and his 9 children a way to build a bond as they focus on growing all-natural, antibiotic free turkeys.

    Why not have an open field for them during the day and house them at night. All these farmers for commercial sales is horrid.. Your Farm birds look like shit and their beaks are trimmed too short!

    Better than factory farms where they feed them steroids & abuse them daily

    This is just standard commercial turkey farming, nothing special about it. You can tell by the house design, and the fact that they're debeaked. Enjoying it? hah, they probably got suckered into the idea and now can't get out of debt except by growing more and turkeys.

    I'm interested in Amish farming techniques. 

    Horse/mule/donkey usage.
    Hay Bailing, crop production, animal processing, etc.

    Mahalo for any insights, tips, or suggestions.

    Aloha from Hawai`i,

    Mahalo for the great video, my wife & I are planning to start a small farm on the Big Island in the very near future.  My wife is becoming a Nurse Practitioner specializing in rural & family practice.  I plan to farm, hunt & fish full time.  Ohana (family), is very important to us & we plan to raise our future children in a more simple, yet well balanced upbringing. 

    We look forward to watching more of your videos.

    Stay productive, healthy & happy.

    spiritosa0123  You seem to be an expert, how many turkeys should there be?  If they are outside then the coyotes and other critters can attack them.  The can drown when too much rain comes and what are they suppose to do in the winter?  Shiver?
