Here at Old McCaskill's Farm, there is always something going on! From daily chores and feedings to sheep sheerings and spur of the moment bar-b-q's... no one can keep up with ever-changing life on the farm better than Kathy McCaskill.
Although the farm is not an interactive one, we encourage our guests to roam the grounds freely. The farm is open seasonally to the public, Thursday through Friday, 2pm-6pm and Saturday, 8:30am-12pm.

Free range chickens and guineas
Goats, Cows and
a Horse (which is mostly a pasture ornament)
All of our animals are raised antibiotic and medication free. Our feed is a special non-medicated formula ground from corn, soybean meal, and cottonseed.
The animals are periodically checked through the Famacha system and selectively wormed. They also consume free choice mineral. Furthermore, all of our meats and sausages are preservative-free.
Our flock is a closed flock for biosecurity purposes. We want to know that our animals are at no risk from outside diseases.
We are as close to organic as one can get without being certified. We are currently unable to afford the cost of organic corn and hay. Just the same, if we could use it, our customers couldn't afford the products afterward.
