Hay Creek Heritage Farms

A small farm dedicated to conserving and promoting rare heritage livestock breeds and heirloom vegetables in Michigan on the banks of Hay Creek.

Cotton Patch Geese

Cotton Patch geese were named for the job they were bred to do, weeding cotton and corn fields. The breed is listed as critical by the Livestock Conservancy. Our starter flock of Cotton Patch geese includes one male, George Washington, and his 3 females, the Marthas. George was the inspiration for our logo!
