We are a small "hobby farm" nestled in the Endless Mountains of NEPA.
About the Farm
In addition to our alpacas and llama we also raise Alpine and Nubian dairy goats and what farm is complete without chickens? We keep laying hens year-round and meat chickens seasonally. As of November 2017, we have excitedly added San Clemente Island Goats to the farm. We look forward to seeing what our future holds with our efforts to reclaim a dying breed.
Let us not forget about Kipton's farm mascot, a painted Quarter horse, Jetts. He aspires to be a bullriding cowboy someday :) We will practice up with our Dun Quarter gelding, Tuck, that we board at a nearby stable.
I am no stranger to the farm life, growing up on a Registered Holstein Dairy Cow farm in Susquehanna County. My dear father is a "true cow man," spending countless hours studying pedigrees, bloodlines and lineage. I am striving to keep that in mind when making purchases here at my farm, while keeping the value of fleece in mind. I plan to spin my wheel with that beautiful crimp and density into an artful craft of some kind! I cannot go without recognizing my dear mother in her support of my "habits," always encouraging me to reach for the stars. I feel I've done that with these wondrous creatures!
Our Little Ones
Our three sons, Camden , Colby  and Kipton  enjoy living each day here on the farm. Colby is my little "farm boy," as he helps feed the animals, catches loose chickens with a net and uses "his equipment" to build a construction site in the dirt pile near the barn. Camden just enjoys the fresh air and freedom of the farm life here amongst the rolling hills and clear skies of Wyoming County, while Kipton can shovel "paca piles" with the best of them!
About Ryan and Amanda
Our land was acquired via Ryan's father near his family stone business where he makes his living. In my prior-to-children life, I was a Registered Nurse. Perhaps someday, I'll get back there!
