Pet Estate Services
- Many wonder what will happen to their dog or cat if something happens to them. This option provides answers. Not only will your pet have a home away from home when needed, but long term arrangements insure that he or she won't end up at a shelter. Why use kennels where your pet is one of dozens - this provides personalized care. If something should happen to you, we will pick up your pet anywhere in the United States and his vacation home becomes a permanent one. He'll have food, shelter, comfortable bed and familiar toys and regular medical care. This is a custom situation - ask us if interested. Whether your pet is a Great Dane or a Chihuahua, from rescue to champion there will be care and hands on attention as part of a family. Watch for this service for horse also!

Sponsorships allow for building/expansion *and* provide food for those who need it.
As a means of helping others with a hand up sponsoring a box of food
gets produce, meats and other food into the home of someone in need.
This might be a military family or single parent with unexpected expenses
that cuts into their food budget. $50
- Sponsoring a garden is an option we created for several reasons.
It's a smaller area that is designed to give to others. It also is an
option for memorials for loved ones lost that gives food to others as a
means of continuing to make a difference. This option gives a small
garden space for donation to others over an entire season rather than a
box of food. Seed, raised bed area grown and food provided to those in
need. Donation also provides eggs for those in need too. This is a way to help a season's produce to help others. $300
Sponsor a Poultry Breed
- Many people love animals but don't have a way to keep them. With our
sponsorship program it makes it possible to get our foundation birds
started as quickly as possible. There will be several options within
this. $45 Choose from:
Royal Palm, Bourbon Red, Black Spanish, Naragansett turkey turkeys
Ancona, Welsh Harlequin, Cayuga, Campbell ducks
Brahma, Rhode Island Whites, Plymouth rock, white wyandottes, brown/colored egg layer chicks
White Leghorn, white egg layer chicks
Pilgrim, Pomeranian, Cotton Patch, Shetland geese
The cost of heritage poultry does vary with species - it's not
uncommon for turkeys and goslings to be $10 each and, as large growing birds they eat quite a bit! Initially this will be starting foundation animals in a smaller setting, allowing to grow for productive members of our 'team.' All poultry sponsors will get an email copy of "Getting By: Lessons From a Rural Past" and the Getting By cookbook. Heritage sponsors are a great way to remember someone who loves antiques as they are living antiques, tracing back 100 years or more.
Sponsor a Rabbit - Sponsoring a rare breed rabbit can be a way to learn more about these
fascinating creatures. American Chinchilla and Giant Chinchilla are
both on the list with the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. Your sponsorship helps feed and shelter a show or breeding
animal (not a meat rabbit although some of his/her offspring may be sold
as fryers). Among the projects for 2012 is constructing 4'x8' raised hutches, allowing much more room for our large rabbits than standard cages, and working on a barn that is innovative in animal care. This is especially important for our "working does" with a litter. $30
Sponsor a tree - A family memorial tradition is planting a tree to honor someone. This
is a way of insuring a living memorial and in that spirit we're
offering an option for those who don't have room to do so. A limited number of
these will be available - these include English walnut, pecan, apple,
peach, cherry and other fruit and nut trees as well as maple trees,
planted in a fenced area on the farm. You will receive photos of the
planted tree and a marker will be put on the entrance honoring these
lives. Several are already booked - planting will be as soon as land is
closed. This will be a quiet area with a nearby pond, with poultry naturally grazing and
providing pests control in the fenced orchard area...a quiet spot on a
small farm that not only stands as a memorial to lives gone before but
feeds people as well. $100.
