What you'll do

Introductions, meet and greet. Go over safety and guidelines to ensure welfare of animals and guests. All activities are hands on and led by me and my family. We have a fun loving and supportive system here on the Homestead. We will be using our love and knowledge of our farm animals and environment to educate and give an experience guests wont forget. Depending on the request of the guest we will be doing any of the following; -Walk, hug, groom and bond with the horses. Riding is also offered in a safe and contained environment. -Milk a goat! Groom and walk the goats, bottle feed baby goats when available. -Cuddle, feed, brush and play with the fluffy sheep. -Let a pig take a nap on your lap while you are forced to continue hand cramping belly rubs. Feed them treats and watch them sit on command. KuneKune piglets are possible at times, learn about the mini New Zealand pig. -Visit Miss May the Donkey. You wont get far without visiting her, she demands attention. -Chicken therapy? Duck therapy? Discover chicken math. Feed the tiny dinosaurs and watch them do their jobs.

Cadi

My family and I opened Thayer Family Homestead in 2016. Our goal is to leave a healthier and more knowledgeable generation behind us in regards to farming and raising animals ethically for self sufficiency. I have been working alongside horses for over 25+ years, I have been managing small and large livestock for over 21 years. I am whole heartedly in this industry to ethically raise various livestock and share my knowledge with anyone who will listen. There is a huge therapeutic benefit, both mentally and physically, when working outside with all of the worlds natural gifts and creatures. I want to be that person who makes this accessible to kids and adults and hope my passion and love for this will leave with everyone who has an experience with us.
