Hobby Farm Dreams
Hobby Farm Dreams, while the name of a website and our gift store, it is also a state of mind. It raises hopes and dreams in the soul. A desire to get back to things that are more basic – a time before the hectic life of kid’s sports, two income families, cell phones and all the technology that follows us everywhere and demands our time. It speaks to our hearts and minds as a time when we can breath and enjoy the fresh air.
My husband and I fell victim to this thinking about 20 years ago and began our search for a “Hobby Farm.” After settling into our new home, my first task was to find the breed of sheep that was that ideal picture of sheep which had formed in my mind years before I ever thought of buying a hobby farm. After months of searching I found them, they are a specialty breed called “Olde English Babydoll Sheep.” And yes, I bought them. However, our love for animals has caused us to add many different animals including llamas, alpacas, goats, miniature Mediterranean donkeys, a variety of chickens, guineas and peafowl.
The animals on our farm are given good pasture, fresh air, pure water and certified organic feed. They live in harmony with each other, our family and the land. We partake in wholesome, nutritious food based on organic sustainable agriculture and use no synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, plant growth products, hormones or routine antibiotics. We also sell certified organic feed to hobbyists and farmers that have the same outlook on life that we have.
Since we love our land and animals, we spend time photographing our feathered and furry friends. Earlier this year, we began working on an idea that would allow us to share our lifestyle with others. And so, the” Hobby Farm Dreams Gift Shoppe” has been created. It is our hope that when you bring one of our creations into your home that it will bring joy and peace into your life because you cannot make a leap into a new venture without first dreaming about it.
Hobby Farm Dreams is owned and operated by Rivers Critters Ranch, a family run enterprise dedicated to preserving the entrepreneurial spirit of the American Family Farmer.
