Meet our Herd
We are frequently asked why we chose to raise alpacas.
After a year of research, we decided that alpacas were a good fit for our farm and family. Alpacas produce beautiful fiber, and due to their gentleness and size, our children are able to be hands-on in helping care for them.
Girls: Celine, Liberty Belle, Mylyndia, and KoKo
Boys: Mikey, Burnet, and Masquerade
Angus cattle, known as Aberdeen Angus in most parts of the world, are a breed of cattle commonly used in beef production. They were developed from cattle native to the counties of Aberdeenshire and Angus in Scotland.
We recently welcomed our first calf, Big Mac, to the farm in March 2019.

Meet the newest member of Sugg Plantation!
While we aren't exactly sure what breed he is, (we suspect a mix of Welsh Mountain) one thing's for sure, this big boy is super sweet and very smart!
He has quickly taken up with the male alpacas and Hank, the goat. They're just one big happy family!
Born in the spring of 2018, Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Donald are now big enough to join the gals in the hen house.
They enjoy waddling, quacking, and cooling off on warm days in their very own swimming pool!
Jake and Elwood
The Great Pyrenees dog breed‘s goal in life is to protect sheep, goats, livestock, people, children, grass, flowers, the moon, trees, lawn furniture, bird feeders, and any real or imaginary predators that may intrude on their personal space. Oh yeah, and to give unconditional love.
Brothers, Jake and Elwood, enjoy barking, roaming the farm, chasing coyotes, shedding fur, eating, and tummy time.
The Grounds Keeper
Rodent Management Team
Our rodent management team, Daisy Duke, Claire, Thor, and Shadow work around the clock (between naps) to keep the farm safe from mice, moles, skunks, birds, snakes, bugs, and other small rodents.
The Egg Plant
The Rhode Island Red is an American breed of chicken
(Gallus gallus domesticus). It is a utility bird, raised for meat and eggs, and also as a show bird. RIR's are a popular choice for backyard flocks because of its egg laying abilities and hardiness.
Our Rhode Island Reds; Fergie, Rudy, and Steve, Rose, Sophia, Dorothy, Blanche, Cluck Norris, Princess Layer, Hen Solo, and Nugget are very smart and docile, and sometimes like to play ball in the yard.
Their delicious eggs can purchased directly from our farm.
Dixie the Donkey
Dixie is the sweetest girl around and loves to ‘talk’ to passers-by. She enjoys sunny days in the pasture looking after her alpaca friends.
Have you heard the legend of the Donkey’s Cross?
The donkey who carried Mary to Bethlehem is often referred to as a Nativity Donkey (like Dixie). Jesus also rode into Jerusalem on the back of a small donkey on Palm Sunday.
The little animal loved Jesus so much, that when He was sentenced to be crucified, she wanted to help him bear the burden of the cross. The donkey was driven away but returned to pay its respects when everyone else had gone. As she turned away sadly, the shadow of the cross fell over her shoulders.
The mark remains as a permanent tribute of love and loyalty from the humblest of God’s creatures.
Hank the Goat
Hank Williams is a ramblin' man. He joined the farm Feb. 2017 and spends his day hanging out with Dixie, munching on briars, trimming hedges, pulling weeds, and sometimes fertilizing the grounds.
When he's not working hard tending the pasture, he's usually napping in the feeding trough.
