Evan and I are just two people chasing a dream! On a drive one weekend a few years back, we started talking about what we wanted to do when we retired...after some really outlandish and ridiculous ideas, Evan said "I've always wanted to have some land and a few sheep"...and so the dream began!
After much conversation, we decided we didn't want to wait until we retired to turn our dream into a reality, so I got a new job, we packed up the storage unit, and moved to Paso Robles, CA with only a dream and a whole lot of hope! As all things that are meant to be go, our farm was listed the day we moved to town, two days later we put a contact on it, and the rest is history.
A little bit about me: I am a city girl, born and raised in Baltimore Maryland. Until just 4 years ago, I worked as a radiation therapist, treating cancer patients. Since moving to Paso, I work on the vendor side of cancer care, which has allowed me to live here! I get lots of compliments on my scones, I help my husband make cheese, and apparently I'm the chicken and duck whisperer on the farm!
A little about Evan: Evan is also from Maryland, and that's where we met. He is a professional photographer, getting his start as a freelance photojournalist. Ev moved into the event side of photography, shooting primarily weddings, and did so for many years. Once we decided to pursue the dream of being sheep farmers/cheese makers/inn keepers he hung up his cameras (at least professionally) and focuses his attention on the well being of our animals, as well as being the primary cheese maker! When Evan is not helping me check in guests, taking care of the farm/animals or making cheese, he works in the wine industry, at a local winery called Villicana.
When you are staying with us, we hope to provide a relaxing enjoyable experience that allows you to escape from everyday life.
