We’re a small hobby farm. Our mission is to protect endangered livestock and poultry through rescues/rehomes, breeding, hatching rentals, educational workshops and The Petting Park. 100% of this rental goes toward the feed, and care of the animals. We have mini donkeys, mini horses, endangered sheep, Scottish Highland steer, rabbits, endangered turkeys, chickens, dwarf goats, kune kune pigs, bees, and a very old tortoise. 

There is a pond full of bass, and lots of fishing nearby. We have two tent spaces, a grilling (gas) area (propane not included,) and a fire pit (wood not included,) and a small gas camping fire pit (propane not included.) Two adult kayaks, 1 child kayak and 2 paddle boards are available to rent.

The map image does NOT reflect what the property currently looks like, except for the pond. The image is extremely old. The majority of the property is dirt. We have well water.
