We raise Dexter Cattle. They are a very old Irish breed and the smallest breed of cattle. They are naturally shorter because their purpose was as a dual purpose (milk and meat) family cow for small farms in Ireland. We are striving to keep our animals true to the old type Dexters.
Some of our cows
Our horses are Phoenix, a palomino AQHA gelding, Andy (Sea Spirit) a grey Arabian cross and Donkeyotee (Don Quixote) a large standard donkey.
