Do we allow visitors to the farm? Of course! We love to see you. During the hours that the farm and store are open to the public visits do not have to be scheduled. However, if you'd like a guided tour, a little preplanning is required.
We love what we do and are proud of what we have built here, quite literally from the ground up! The dairy and creamery are only a part of it and it continues to be a constant work in progress. This isn't only our business, its our home. We love sharing our experiences with others, as well as explaining why we do what we do and what made us get started. We hope, by opening our farm, we will play a small part in educating our community about the importance of small, sustainable farms and local food in agriculture.
We begin a tour where we began as a farm, with our horses. (And you thought we only had goats!) More specifically our rare breed of Draft Horse, the American Drum Horse. We are home to the first Drum Horse Stallion born on US soil in 2001. Our guys are very friendly and are always happy to oblige for petting, photos and "selfies".
Then we will take you through the barn and "woodshop" where there is more often than not, some project or other in the works. Most of our structures are built with wood harvested and milled here on the property. Including what has been called by visitors - and we were very flattered! - the "Taj Mahal" of chicken coops and our own farm store.
Through the barn you will visit with the favorites of most guests...all the baby goats! You can pet, take pictures and love on babies.
If we can tear you away from the babies, you can view our milking parlor and milk room. From there you will meet the "working girls", the livestock guardian dogs, Ziva, Ayla & Bundy, Teddy the guard llama, Sarah Beth and Esmerelda the miniature pigs, Bear the Shetland Pony, Hootie the mini-donkey...and Toby, Spencer & Jimi. Who are they? You'll have to come see us to find out!
Finally we will end up in the farm store where you can see into the cheese room, shop and SAMPLE! We will have varieties of cheese as well as caramel and goat milk on hand for everyone to try.
