Hi there! Welcome to our little slice of heaven. To start off, it is very nice to meet you! We are so glad you stopped by! Within the last few years we have been breaking into the farming world and are taking things one day at a time; each day making baby steps toward the goal of living more sustainably and relying less on super markets for meals. We bought our current property in June of 2020 but have been property owners in this area for 4 years. Every day brings a new challenge and we love the great community and endless laughter owning all these animals has brought to our lives.
Prior to purchasing our previous property neither of us had ever lived on a farm, though we both grew up around farm animals. The list is growing all the time, but currently we have seven Nigerian Dwarf goats. We added a buck in the summer of 2019 to break into the goat breeding world. We had our first successful kidding season in the spring of 2020 and loved it so much that we added a second buck and will be expecting more baby goats in the spring of 2021! We have 2 Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs who spend the majority of their time watching over the goats and our 10 chickens. Marley is our resident companion pup that we rescued from a shelter eight years ago (pictured above) and she has transitioned to farm life seamlessly (but still likes to sleep inside by the fireplace at night); she spends most of her time with our orange tabby cat, Mr. Pickles, who has become a top notch mouser, and has also decided that life on the farm isn’t so bad. Pickles has recently been joined by a smaller, more energetic female cat who moved here from Minnesota to become a mouser just for the farm along with her two younger orange and white tabby brothers! Pickles isn’t sure he’s a fan of having other cats on the farm yet, but we think they’ll be buddies in no time!
We are learning more every day and have committed to making our home and our animals the best that they can be. In spring of 2021 we will be listing a one bedroom, one bathroom vacation rental on our property to share our farm and Yellowstone country with visitors from all over the world! Join us here to follow our journey, we promise it will be worth your while!
