What you'll do

Hold on to your heart for a breathtaking magical 2 hour educational experience with amazing farm animals most rescues. We are not a petty zoo, we are millions times more with up close and personal time with the pack. After a brief overview of our time we begin your experience! Join our happy entertaining God goats to our shy precious sheep sisters. Our alpaca Felix most times is the star of the show while the other 3 steal your heart. Some eat lettuce or a cookie from your lips. Some of the pack are rescues so each day is different with limitations on how they feel that moment. You'll enjoy touching with no worries while grooming the horses. Wait till you meet Falcon and new gf Butterscotch (as of April 22) miniatures and sweet buddies Dandee and Magic. Awww broken hearted..Magic went to heaven April 29th. I share personal information on each amazing precious animal.
When our time comes to an end I show beautiful items made from alpaca fiber and share pictures I have taken during your visit.

PLEASE understand my farm will not play in the rain or mud. They hide! I try my best to watch the weather! I want the very best experience for you and my farm.

I invite guests to contact me for birthday parties or special events with larger groups and special calendar dates not shown on my calendar.

I follow the footsteps of my parents for the love for dogs, horses and farm animals. Spending summers on my Aunt's and Uncles farms gave me the opportunity to grow in knowledge and experience for these precious souls. Having rescue dogs and horses over the last 30 years to a farm with sheep, goats and alpacas. Some are rescues with challenging personalities that over time with me have adapted nicely learning to co-exist within the herd. We are not a petting zoo a sweet guest says! The time is magical and up close and friendly with the farm. Over the years our friends and family of all ages enjoy positive time with our farm animals. Only the best positive experience for guests and our loved animals is my focus.
I'm only allowed 10 pictures on this site.

We had a great time with Karen and her lovely farm animals. It was definitely an immersive experience where you not only personally connected with each farm animal, but you also learned a little more about their background and how far they have come along on their journey from being rescued. If you’re looking for a hands on and intimate opportunity to spend quality time with farm animals, I highly recommend this experience.

My friend and I had a wonderful experience with Karen and her farm animals. Karen was a kind and welcoming host. She shared many stories about her animals and gave us details about their individual personalities and backgrounds. Karen was informative and taught us about proper care, grooming, and nutrition for each animal. Her love for animals was very sweet and evident. It was a delightful, hands-on experience that I highly recommend!

This was a magical experience for myself and three girlfriends! We had an awesome time and Karen is amazing! I honestly thought we were attending a petting zoo but it was a million times more! We really got to experience up a personal experience with each animal. They were sweet and interested in us which made it all the better! This was worth the time and money!

It was a fabulous experience with Karen and her loving animals. Both my mom and I absolutely love the tour. There are two gates. You will see first gate when you arrive and keep going on the path on the left and you will see another gate and Karen there expecting you. Karen welcomed us very warmly when we arrived. A lot of her animals were rescued. There were Alpacas, sheeps, goats, horses and Miniature (mini horse). She told us the stories and the details on how she take care each of them. We were really touched to see her love towards them. She is definitely passionated about what she is doing. Karen will also help to take great photos/videos for you. It was also great to know that she will be building an barn soon and can follow her on instagram to see her progress and improvements. Would recommend for anyone who loves animals and like to interact with them.

“We got to learn about the animal’s backgrounds and their personalities. We feed them, brushed them and walked them to the pasture for their fun and exercise. We saw how they use alpaca fur for weaving sweaters. We saw their gardens with all the different types of plants. Karen loves her animals and is passionate about them. A once in a lifetime experience.” Carmen “Karen was great! Funny, knowledgeable, passionate and welcoming. Thank you Karen for everything. My family and I had a great time. This experience was so special and my favorite birthday.” Jayna

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience with Karen and her lovely animals. It was a surprise for my partner and she absolutely loved it. Karen cares greatly for her animals and is clearly very knowledgeable. The animals themselves were so much fun to be around. We felt very comfortable and Karen was a fantastic host. If you’re an animal lover I highly recommend a visit.

More tips

Being in the country opens a new door to things you normally don't come in contact with. Hay, Pigeons, squirrels, rabbits, snakes, mice, birds, lizards, flies, bees. It's safe.
As winter rains come and go I do my best guessing for a beautiful day.

What to bring

Camera, Sunscreen, Fly spray, closed toe shoes, hat or visor, jacket when weather permits.
