All the breeds we raise are chosen because they are known to be friendly and good layers. This makes them very popular with families and homesteaders. If you are looking for a good to excellent egg layer (our breeds typically produce 180-250 eggs that you feel more comfortable around - we have them here! Natalie also has it in her future plans to breed for an array of egg colors so stay tuned for rainbow of color in the egg basket!
Like our chicken breeds, Mini Nubians are very friendly and sociable! Their great personalities and easy going nature make them excellent for pets or brush clearing. However, high butterfat milk production is what we breed for on our farm. We love their personalities, colors, and playful antics, but when it comes right down to it they produce a lot of great tasting milk in a small sized body - less feed needed for them and more milk on the table for us! If you are looking for an addition to your homestead, a family pet, or brush clearer, you are likely to find one of our ladies very pleasing and enjoyable! Playful, loving Mini Nubians just might be a good match for your family too.
We raise Mini Nubians with high quality dairy lines. We usually have kids for sale in the spring and summer. We also have adults and does in milk for sale, just inquire and let us know what you are looking for. We will get you set up with a good match for your enjoyment!
Our chicken breeds were selected for their good friendly manners. We like to keep a rooster to fertilize our eggs and so our broody hens can have the joy of raising their own chicks, but the roosters must be gentlemanly around people. We have Welsummers, Ameraucanas, and Black Copper Marens. Just for fun we have crosses that have hatched which means we will also be offering a very colorful egg basket.
Since we raise our animals organically and naturally we also sell and share ideas on the use of essential oils.

Day-to-day operations at Babka Farms are run by Robert and Natalie Weber in Granger, Texas. We have two grown daughters, Rachel and Gabrielle, living close to our hearts all the way in NY. Natalie's father, Charles Babiak, was orphaned at age 5 with 2 younger siblings. He spent his early years during the Great Depression passed among caring relatives. The siblings grew up together and as an older child and teenager he worked at local farms to help support his brother and sister. Natalie spent many hours with her Dad both in their backyard garden and picking strawberries at Thorpe's Organic Family Farm. Gabrielle married their son, Elijah Thorpe. Elijah and Gabrielle have a woodcrafting business. Rachel works at Alpine Made taking care of their herd of organic dairy goats. We love raising quality farm animals and crafting artisan products!
Babka is the root word for Babiak and it is the Polish word for "Grandmother". The farm name is a tribute to Natalie and her sister Mary's mother, Martha Babiak. Although she passed on to heaven early and before even all her grandchildren were born she left a legacy as an amazing grandmother and matriarch. She loved quality driven by dedication in all aspects of life and nourishing, well made food. It is with great love and admiration that we share our lives with you though the gifts she nurtured within us.
