Our tours offer interaction with farmyard animals, hands-on opportunities, and a look into the process and history of a family-run farm based on 100 years of operation.
My absolute favorite thing to do on the farm is observe and pursue wildlife. I’ve had the privilege of seeing large herds of deer and antelope. I’ve seen large flocks of various ducks and geese using the farm as well. On good years, I’ve witnessed large flocks of grouse and the occasional partridge. In the Spring there are times I can hear turkeys gobble in the distance. All of these wildlife encounters wouldn’t be possible without your farm.
Some people say there is no place like home. You can’t get much closer than this! With beautiful views andlasting memories, this s a wonderful gem.
Visits to the farm are some of the most treasured childhood memories I have. I still almost re-live my experience when I think about the smell of the farm, the love of the farmers for the earth, riding in the tractor, cleaning the barn, feeding and milking the cows, bottle feeding the calves, jumpin on the hay bales and climbing the trees. It’s an experience that every kid/adult should have a chance to encounter.

On behalf of my entire family, I would like to take the time to wish you all a belated Happy New Year. 2021 has started off with some of the same challenges and stressors of 2020. It is time to put those aside and to reflect on the many blessings that we have. We had...
Even a farmer must rest sometimes! For us, Winter provides more opportunities than other parts of the year. A spontaneous trip to south central Texas to help a buddy move is just what the doctor ordered. The business phone was left with others at home and we jumped...
