HOW YOU HELPED OLIVE DRAB FARM ACHIEVE THEIR DREAM

We are thrilled everyone that uses our goat handmade products knows they are getting authentic artizen products.

Tamara Gruschke
Olive Drab Farm, Owner

Our story began many sunsets ago outside of Altus Air Force Base but that was a lifetime ago.  We have lived in four different states and another country since then.  Lets start on our current chapter here in Hudson, Florida. 

Retired from the military, we decided we wanted to be more self sustaining and less wasteful following an eye opening experience while living overseas.  We have many plans to reach 100% self sustainment but that is going to take lots of time, patience, and support. 

You won’t believe this…

In the meantime, we  have  officially gone off the grid! This is thanks to all of our loyal soap, lotion, and milk customers. Thank you so much! We were able to install 39 solar panels that is supporting our farm and providing over 70% of our needs.

Who loves olives?

We have also planted all of our olive trees from our 2017 purchase and plan to do our first cuttings fall 2019 to expand our olive trees to around 600-700 trees. 

Currently, we produce all of our own dairy, eggs, half of our produce in the summer, and our own electricity and water.

By purchasing our goat milk lotion and soaps, you are helping us to achieve our dreams.  We use our profits to invest in our self sustainability goals such as trees, plants, fencing, fodder systems, and many  many more farming projects.

We take a lot of pride in our work and we hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy making them.
