The animals have a large area to roam, but they really like to be walked by one of us. Here, Benjamin is walking the pigs and the goats. In the first picture, SweePea is getting really close to Ben, hoping there might be an apple or something in his back pocket. She’s the cutest, sweetest, 800-lb animal we have ever been around. Still, you want to get out of her way.

All of our animals are people-friendly because they spend so much time being handled by us. They will eat out of our hands, and they love to have their backs scratched.

The goat babies are more fun than a basket of pups, and even more hilarious. They dance and twirl in the air, they want to try out their newly discovered head-butting skills on one another. And the second one of us enters their pin, they want to be in our laps for hugs and snuggles.

Farming is just way more fun than we ever dreamed it would be.
