Nella & Molly – Our Trusted & True Friends.

Nella & Molly – Spring of 2019

Our labs, Nella & Molly, remain our best allies in deterring moose and deer. Now in their 10th and 8th years respectively, they remain valiant in their callings as big animal dissuaders. Our daylily and vegetable gardens remain safe under their guardianship. And they work for biscuits!

Getting along in years, you might not know it as you watch them in action. Thank you pups for your faithfulness.

BB’s LOFT: Homing Pigeons – new feature for families visiting the farm!

Homers

Our 8 x 8 x 6′ high loft sits in an old brooder house here on the farm; housing a small flock of pigeons that visitors can see, touch, and release. Together we learn about these amazing, intelligent birds.

Noted for their ability to fly long distances, they can reach speeds of up to 90 mph. Our breeding stock came from Northstar Doves near Lacombe, AB. We now have a small number of mealys, pies, and gray bars – beautiful, as well as brilliant.
