I worked on farms through college and veterinary school (beef cattle, hay and row crops). When I graduated veterinary school, we moved off the farm while Jenn finished school. When we moved to Pennsylvania, a large farm was not financially possible. We found a large lot in a rural area and that is where we settled and stayed. Being a farmer at heart, we needed livestock. The chicken coop was built and the chicks were bought. I could pretend I was a farmer with my large garden and fresh eggs.
About nine years ago I bought my first Border Collie. A neighbor let me put sheep on their property and I got a little closer to being a real farmer. I currently have three Border Collies that we use to work the sheep and go to Sheepdog Trials. I have really enjoyed the Sheepdog Trials and the great people I have met through them. Border Collies are really cool dogs.
We have continued to add to our little farm. We now raise two pigs a year for a pig roast and the freezer. We raise a steer each year and last year we added the dairy goats. This spring we added the bee hives and now we have decided to expand this into a business. Jenn has her beautiful handmade glass beads and jewelry and I have the farm products. We hope you enjoy what we are now providing. We appreciate the support.
