Who We Are
Wabi Sabi Acres is a small, simple, family farm that offers a variety of unique products, services and events. We choose quality over quantity and believe in personal service and building relationships. Our current focus is rare breed chickens. Future plans include farm produce, goats and more.
We are incredibly blessed that we are able to do so much of what we love in such a peaceful setting. We wish each one of you peace and blessings as well.

More About Us
Zac, Hope, Wolf, the Land and Chickens
Two suburban hippies tie the knot in paradise
A few years later, a tiny one is in the making
A perfect child is born...
We decide that the child should grow up in the country, with space to roam, fresh air and lots of critters
We build a small, simple home with heavy gauge steel insulated panels
High thermal performance (R-39 walls and roof); resists wind loads over 150 mph; one 4x8 panel can support an ultimate axial load of over 36,000 pounds; made with 100% recycled materials and 100% recyclable; provides no food value to termites, ants and other insects; non-off-gassing, CFC & HCFC free; long-term resistance to water damage, mold and rot; can last hundreds of years. Super sexy! More info: https://www.buildwithwally.com/
Getting equipment and supplies to support our new, countrified existence
After much research and consideration, we decide small, mobile, open-air coops are the best option for our flocks
The found-on-the-ground branch handle is my favorite feature of this adorable coop
Our first egg!
Hope has a weird obsession with photographing eggs in unique containers. She hopes to one day be a sort of Anne Geddes of chicken eggs, but since she shoots all photos with her iphone, there's little chance of that. Still, baby steps!
We begin breeding and hatching our own chicks
We add Black Copper Marans to our flocks
Silverudd's Blues are added as well
Wabi Sabi Acres is a place where creatures can roam and be happy - chickens AND children!
Wolf and buds on top of the world!
Not much in the world simpler or more satisfying than gathering a rainbow of fresh eggs each day
We color-matched eggs for many months as a way to memorialize egg color
We try to raise our birds as close to nature as possible, letting little ones roam outdoors from the start
No dyeing needed for our Easter eggs
Silverudd's maturing nicely
We devised a practical and artistic solution to padding our eggs well for shipping while still allowing them room to move slightly for shock absorption if necessary through the postal system. We think they look like fish eggs!
My kind Wolf just loves his chickens
Nice, plump Black Copper and Wheaten Marans enjoying their breakfast. We feed them right in front of the living room window so we can sit and watch them as we sip our morning tea.
Wolf and Dada, all dressed up

Wolf loves to hold the chickens like babies. This is one of his favorites, Miss Pris.

Love is all you need! We thank God for blessing us with a large and loving family.
