    Hi! My name is Kuzy and I'm the owner of Magnolia Ranch. I bought my ranch in April 2014 so I have almost been here for 2 years!

    I'm 25 years old, my husband and I met working as teenagers on a local farm in the summertimes, and now we are married and own our own ranch where we live with our 8 year old daughter, Lark.

    I teach High School Spanish during the year and farm all spring/summer!

    I currently have 2 goats, 2 hedgehogs, 1 dog, 3 cats, 2 ducks, 8 chickens, and my husband is picking up some new chicks today! I don't know what kind he is getting yet... it will be a big surprise when I get home from work!

    I truly love living on my ranch as I feel so connected to the land and there's nothing more peaceful than early mornings doing my morning chores. It's hard work but it's so worth it to me. I'm hoping to get lambs and sheep this year.

    I joined BYC because I love my birds so much and I always want to do what's best by them. I believe happy chickens are the best all around chickens. I also wanted to meet other people who love having birds!

    Nice to meet you, and feel free to message me or talk to me!
