Michael And Jenessa
We live on an off grid system that was once an Amish farm. You want to see homesteading, this is your chance. We raise dairy goats, dairy cows, pastured poultry, pigs, and breed Great Pyrenees. Goats are our specialty as I grew up with them and now our kids are too. If you can think of a use for goats milk, I’ve probably done it. Kiefer, soap, cheese, you name it.

Where you'll be
We will begin our tour at the big white Amish house. Don’t get me wrong, this does have electricity now since we hooked it up to solar and we aren’t exactly Amish. Next we’ll head to the barn and meet all the critters where you’ll get to try your hand at either milking a goat or cow. We’ll conclude the tour with a peek at various other animals we might have at the time and straining the milk for you to try some fresh from the utter!
Things to keep in mind
Up to 6 guests ages 3 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age.
This is a working farm so make sure to wear boots or footwear that you don’t mind getting dirty.
