    Thank you so much for opening your charming form to us . We learned a lot about the variety of sheep Tara is trying to reintroduce. The care and devotion of Tara and her Family towards their animals was very obvious. We learned a lot about new farming methods. Covid restrictions, in place, allowed us to participate in this event feeling safe. A beautiful farm setting and I was so excited to see the rich paddocks that the animals were living in. A pleasure to spend a day away from the struggles of this past 6 months. Regards Marilyn Hayden

    Thanks for allowing us to tour your farm. The grandkids loved the sheep, alpacas, horses, chickens, and cat. It is great to get city kids out to see the countryside.

    It was a fun experience for the kids, especially as they had a chance to spend some time with the horses. The demonstration on how wool is been processed was very informative.

    A beautiful homestead where love blooms everywhere. You feel the care and dedication that Tara has put into each animal and plant here and it was wonderful spending the day learning from her.

    We had a fantastic time! The only thing I would change is longer scheduled visits, and the events occurring more often for everyone to experience them. But in saying that I realize it’s hard on the volunteers. We appreciate being able to visit your home, thank you!!!!
