On our farm we have chickens; ducks, geese, geanies, pigs, cattle, miniature donkeys, cats, & Bob, our friendly farm dog. We have a nearby farm pond for fishing and paddle boating. We have trails to walk or ride. We have 4-wheelers available. We have orchards and garden in season. Whole line of antique farm machinery and modern farm machinery. We are very reasonably priced at $100 for the whole family.

Our intent is to raise quality, healthy animals. Our view is that anyone coming to our farm or website should be able to find out everything we know about the animals. We want to help educate new and interested people on what alpacas are, what they can do, and what it takes to raise them.

This old fashioned farm has a small commercial vineyard, a small organic vineyard which is "patrolled" for weeds and pests by a troop of Rhode Island Reds, a working barn, a small grass-fed beef operations, a mini orchard which squeezes out 60-100 gallons of cider (some hard) each year.

We have some produce/products for sale. We have some livestock for sale. There are all kinds of animals to meet, a brand new orchard, crops, and pasture.
