instructions for a healthy life:
grow your own food.
harvest. preserve. share
cluck! is a small, woman-owned business founded in 2013 to serve urban agriculturalists and gardeners in and around Providence, Rhode Island. cluck!'s goods and services focus on small-scale food production, backyard small animal husbandry (especially chickens and bees) and homesteading-based self-reliance. We have the tools, supplies, ideas and education you need to grow, raise and preserve your own food while helping to keep your community healthy and beautiful. We've also got unusual, thoughtful gifts for all ages.
We run year-round classes, workshops, readings, and family-friendly programs and maintain a teaching garden of edibles and habitat-supporting native plants. We also keep bees and raise chickens. All of this happens on the site of a once-abandoned 1950's gas station on the West Side of the city. Like you, we face the challenges of impervious surfaces and soils in which you cannot safely plant. We start seeds and plant when you do, and encounter the same weather, bugs, and mishaps. We commiserate, explore solutions and share outcomes.
We believe in knowing our customers, we stand by what we sell and we like what we do.
It's really that simple.

PS: We also have some of the prettiest darn chickens in the region (not that we're bragging or anything).
