What you'll do

If you've been dreaming about homesteading, this is the tour for you. Visit our three acre homestead where we gather eggs for breakfast, milk goats for cheesemaking and grow vegetables for canning. We will take you on a tour of our kitchen garden, goat barn, and hand built chicken coops. You will get to interact with the animals and see how they are set up to free range and intermingle. We currently raise several varieties of Orphington and Crested Cream Legbar chickens and Nigerian Dwarf goats. We will show you the specific needs of each animal, from housing, feed, predator protection to basic animal husbandry. During chicken breeding season, you can see our indoor incubator and brooding box set up and learn how we care for chicks from hatching to 3 weeks, when they graduate to the outdoors. Throughout the tour, you will have a chance to focus on any aspect that most appeals to your own interests and ask lots of questions.

We ask that you keep in mind that homesteading activities are seasonal and will depend on the time of year of the tour. The animals may be less active if the weather is poor and there is less growing in the gardens in winter. But there is always plenty to see and learn here, regardless of the time of year.
Other things to note
Interested in a date that is not available? Just contact us and we will do our best to accommodate a day that works for you.

Kids are welcome as long as they are old enough to stay with you during the tour and able to be gentle and respectful of all animals (no chasing or rough handling is allowed)

We have been raising chickens for seven years on our three acre farm. We incubate chicks eight months out of the year for individual customers across the state. This past year, we obtained National Poultry Improvement Plan Certification, which involves regular testing of our birds for health standards. We have taught a class at our farm once a year for the past five years on chicken keeping, covering care from chick to adult, shelter, feed and predator protection. We also have a small herd of goats, two guardian livestock dogs and a productive kitchen garden. We enjoy being sought out as a resource for chicken questions in our community. Our passion is sharing homesteading knowledge that helps others learn to grow their own food and become more self sufficient.

Where you'll be

We will be outdoors on our 3-acre property, walking through the animal pastures and barns. We are located adjacent to a fifth generation working dairy farm and have a beautiful view of roaming cows in expansive pastures, with Collins mountain in the background. We are a peaceful spot tucked away in the woods to enjoy the quiet of nature. The walking tour is not strenuous.

Rated 4.86 out of 5 from 7 reviews.

Fun & Educational Experience - Highly recommend for anyone considering starting a homestead or just curious and wanting to learn more about animals and sustainable farming. Audrey was great and vary passionate about all the work she does on the small farm. She clearly cares very deeply for the animals she raises and it comes through in every part of the tour. You will learn a ton about chickens, goats, farm dogs, and crops! And I highly recommend going in the spring given all the new animals being born and cared for!

Amy and Audrey provide a perfect balance of education, real-life experience, humor, and a “we continue to learn ourselves” attitude that leaves you feeling inspired and appreciative. So many small tips to take away as well as a sense of new (really cool) friends!

Audrey and Amy have a unique way of sharing information for both the beginner and those seeking more advice on keeping and raising chickens. Their small farm is easily walkable during the interactive visit with chickens, turkeys and goats. I wanted to see the variety of orpingtons to plan for adding to my small flock. Very clean and peaceful setting!
