Our Story

4-H Gone Wild

This is what happens when you've enjoyed 4-H and have grown up.   

We raise heritage breeds of  poultry and waterfowl including Black Jersey Giants, White Bearded Silkies, Delaware chickens, Buff ducks and Narragansett turkeys;  Nigerian Dwarf Goats,; and white New Zealand rabbits.

We are blessed to be able to compete on the show circuit for all  mentioned.

Additionally, we do contract raise feeder pigs and meat chickens, on a small scale.

Our family has enjoyed and benefited from the homestead lifestyle since 1998.  Through one relocation and raising a family, Hochstetler's Haven has developed; and will continue to adapt to our family's and community's needs long into the future.  For those wondering more about this lifestyle, whether urban or rural, feel free to reach out to us; we'd enjoy walking alongside you as you begin your journey.
