    (I asked this on the chicken forum and I thought I'd try it here, too).
    I'm wondering what other folks call their farm. I'm naming mine Harlequin Creek because we have Welsh Harlequin ducks and a creek, and also after a place I fondly remember in Washington state. What are your farm names, and why did you choose them? Just curious!

    Mine is Spruce Creek Waterfowl because I mainly raise wild waterfowl, we have a creek running through our woods, and we have over a hundred spruce trees that we planted on our property.

    I named mine Dunbar Hill Waterfowl and Poultry because they call the hill we live on Dunbar Hill and the covered bridge by our house is called Dunbar Bridge so it was a natural name and we have ducks and chickens and I wanted to include them both so thats how our name came about and I dont know why I said we it really only me but whatever

    We have a large family farm with cows, horses, pigs, and all my birds. I have only Muscovy ducks and a few chickens now after reducing the flocks.

    I wouldn't call it our farm name but I am in the process of building a website for my Muscovies. It's called "Shadow Valley Muscovies".

    We live down in a valley at the base of the hill, so it always gets dark here early.

    We also have a large creek running through the property that the salmon spawn in every year, it's pretty cool seeing the ducks enjoying the eggs & fry. We also get an occasional Bald Eagle munching on one during that time.

    (the creeks actual name is Horse Haven Creek, but i never liked it and there was never horses (but a few) in the area until a TB breeding farm moved in a few years back.)

    Ares is of course Briarpatch Farms hahaha! We started out as briarpatch rabbitry, breeding top of the line lionhead and holland lops!

    How we got our name:
    When we bought our farm my grandfather clearcut all of the timber one our 200 acre farm leaving not much! later that year the briers took over our farm, and there is a gas station down the road my grandfather always stopped at that was spelled briarpatch so adopted that for our name! When we sold our rabbits we look for a totaly different name but nothing seemed to fit so we just changed rabbitry to farm(s) because we are two separate farms put together ours and my grandparent! This is where our name come from.

    When DH's grandparents bought this property in 1911, the brand they registered was the number 7. When DH's parents bought the property from them, they purchaced the brand also.
    When DH came along...and was old enough to buy his own stock, he used the number 7 and added a rafter above it for his registered brand.
    That is how the name came to be.

    In the background of this pic of my GD and my favorite horse is what was left of the old log house that DH's Great Grandparents lived in.

    As much as I like my ducks, I didn't get them for breeding, pet or show... I got them for eggs, meat and for my dogs to prove themselves on. I call them the Widdershins Farmcollies because I'm breeding counter to the current show trend in rough collies. I like eyes that are big enough to be expressive and I'm not fond of giant tangly coats; on the performance end of things I'm selecting for a laid-back herding style with guardian and vermin-hunting instinct instead of trying to compete with border collies in trials. I lurves my homesteading dogs. <3

    Prairie Wolf Farm (or cabin). We have tons of coyotes out here, and my Belgians are my version of a 'domestic' wolf-pet.
