Welcome to the home of Suzanne Richmond Andrew Malone who together, run Funky Chicken Farm. There they raise chicks for those wanting to raise egg laying hens in their own backyard, rabbits for meat and pets, and Red Wiggler Composting Worms that make the BEST soil from kitchen veggie scraps. Funky Chicken Farm is OPEN to the public Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 2pm for livestock sales and also Farm Stand items such as Pork Sausage, Bacon, Chicken, Sauerkraut, Eggs, Local Honey, Tie Dyes and more. Some of it is sourced from us and some from other local farmers. We do not claim to be organic, although some of our products are such as the sauerkraut.
Suzanne Dudas Richmond from Funky Chicken Farm has been living "Urban Farm Life" since she was a teenager. She inherited the property from her father which her Grandfather bought in 1943, and has kept the homestead going. There Suzanne loves to garden, create, listen to the wildlife, and is a lifelong resident and steward of the property.
Andrew Malone was born and raised in Hopetown, Abaco, Bahamas. There he learned to live off the land and sea and make things work with few resources. He runs the poultry and pig aspects of the farm.
Suzanne has been raising New Zealand X Californian X Chinchilla meat rabbits for over 10 years and offers excellent breeding rabbits for your own rabbitry. Along with the rabbitry lies the wormery which includes the Red Wiggler worm aka Eisenia Foetida. Together the worms and rabbits make for an excellent circle of life which offers meat and soil and worm casting fertilizer for the garden, which in turn can offer food for the rabbits thus completing the circle of life! Here we say that POOP makes the world go round, not love! Suzanne is available Sundays at the farm for consultation and sales. The farm is open to the public Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 2pm. Andrew deals with the poultry sales both days and Suzanne is only available on Sundays. Suzanne is at the Rockledge Gardens Farmers Market every Saturday. We welcome you to call us with your questions.
We sell livestock, composting worms, worm composters, Growboxes, local honey, farm fresh eggs, rabbits, pigs, and chicks. We offer farm raised meats of pork, chicken, and rabbit (as available), soaps, balms, Ice Dyed Clothing, and more!
