about the farm

Star Thrower Farm is located in Paola, Kansas. A lavender field and a small orchard of naturally grown fruit and nut trees was planted in 2016. The farm's herb garden supplies fresh herbs throughout the summer and dried/frozen herbs for use throughout Kansas winters.

We operate Star Thrower Farm in a sustainable manner with sheep naturally fertilizing pastures and garden waste contributing to compost to build healthy soil.

We enjoy a diverse animal population on the farm. Coyotes, white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, pheasant, hawks, raccoons, songbirds, owls, ducks, herons, rabbits, field mice and ground squirrels are abundant. Coyotes and dogs are the only predators we need to be concerned with. Our guard llamas and extensive high tensile electric fence around the pastures have allowed us to pasture the sheep 24 hours a day, year round.
