About Us
We started farming 5 years ago out of a desire to do better. Disenfranchised by the current food system and all it's chemicals, we figured anything we could do for ourselves would be better than the grocery. Well, it was a lot more fulfilling than we expected and before we knew it, we were looking for our own land and "The Smithshyre" was born! We now farm a 5 acre "Actually Organic Homestead" located in Poulsbo. Why do we call it a Homestand and not a Farm? Trying to decrease our reliance on outside sources, we try to grow as much of what we need to get through the year. This means we may not list everything that we grow.

The Shyre is home to a flock of laying hens, meat birds (seasonally), turkeys, dairy goats and sheep. We sell eggs from our organic fed, pastured raised chickens at Kitsap Fresh, as well as a large variety of produce, herbs, fruit and now a Middle Earth inspired line of soaps.

We enjoy sharing our market garden and berry patches with you and we are "Committed" to bringing you the freshest, cleanest local food possible.
Practices
We call ourselves, "Actually Organic Homestead" what does this mean? It's the way things "used" to be before genetics and chemicals were used to make food "better". We believe that food is just fine the way it is "naturally", so if it doesn't grow well here, we don't grow it. All our vegetables are started from heirloom, open-pollinated, organic seeds from reputable growers, no hybrids or altered seeds. And we love specialty / niche items, if we can find the seeds for it, we'll try to grow it.

Our gardens are refreshed with our own compost and restful cover crop periods. All our animals are organic, non-GMO feed and MOB (Managed Intensive Rotational Grazing) grazed to optimize both pasture and animal health. Access to natural forage and the sun are paramount to our production practices, this ensures healthy delicious birds and eggs.

Our soaps are made with all organic ingredients, many grown right here on "The Shyre". Our own lard, tallow and goat milk are combined with *olive oil, *coconut oil, *castor oil, *jojoba oil (shampoo bars) and fragrances to create a lovely bathing experience. We're just getting started on this venture, so feedback is much appreciated for future recipe modifications. We do have a fragrance free bar as well. *USDA organic
