This place has been in my family since about 1970. I can remember coming out to see Grandma and Grandpa and how much fun we would have exploring the old cemetery across the road or venturing up into what we call the "upper 70" to check the cows or see Grandpa's new prize bull.
Thankfully, we were able to purchase the house and land and hope to keep it together for future generations. Fences need mending and ponds reworked but we take each day one day at a time and use what we have. As a matter of fact, my mission is to encourage others to do the same. Start where you are and move forward.
We have a variety of farm animals including our Charolais herd, Nubian dairy goats, an Ayrshire family milch cow, a PIneywoods cow, heritage chickens, geese, ducks, horses, English Angora Rabbits, and Charolais cattle. Our oldest daughter raises Gypsy Cobs as well! Yes, it is quite the menagerie around here, especially since the chickens, ducks, and geese are free ranging. One thing is for sure, no one can pull up into our driveway without us knowing it. With all of these animals we need livestock guardian dogs. We prefer the Great Pyrenese breed. Also, for hunting purposes, and well just out and out fun, we also raise Jack Russell Terriers.
Feel free to check with us if you are interested in raising some of your own animals. We do offer some of our personal stock for sale. Currently we are taking deposits for Jack Russell Terriers, Nubian goats, and English Angora Rabbits. Just let us know by sending us an email or via the contact form below. If we have any available now there will be a page in the tab above. Also, we will be offering remedies we've used on our goats in the Mercantile.
