When I came on our blog, I was shocked to see my last entry.....2017....REALLY!!!

We have had a whirl wind of a year. Not only did we get the whole pasture, goat and horses fences up, but we built inside pens for any new animals to come.......and boy did they come. It h...

We bought half of the fence posts we need to start our fencing around the pasture. We need 80 posts and so far we have 40.

Jeff and our neighbor Dan spent the day stringing out the fence line . Next will be marking every eight feet where each fence post will go.

A few  months ago a couple from Minneapolis called us to ask for help. They found a Muscovy duck frozen in the ice on the freeway (hence the name Popsicle). We weren't ready for animals but we had them bring us Popsicle so we could assess his health and possibly find h...

Well, no farm is complete with out a "honey wagon", "Shit spreader", "Shit flinger"  or "Manure spreader". What ever you call it, we got it. It was a busy day. We followed Jeff's cousin to a farm where they were selling their grandpa's old farm machinery. I knew we wer...

I think the hardest part of getting donations is not only f...

Oh Social media, who can live with out it......me!!! Unfortunately with a non-profit, social media is a must. No one in our family, including our son used FB, Instagram or even had a website before.

I am 50 years old and have only used the computer to pay bills and emai...

The year is 2016, September. We finally started our application for our 501C3 status for our farm animal sanctuary. We had to pick a name first which might seem simple but it is far from it. Jeff and I both had ideas but my mind kept going back to the Rascal Flatts son...

We love this place, don't get me wrong but it was not pretty at first. The whole 10+ acres was over grown to jungle proportions, including the yard around the house. Not only did we have thick brush and scrub trees everywhere, even growing out of building foundations,...
