We are a small rural farm in Southern Colorado. After almost 27 yrs of raising Champion Appaloosas our focus turned to smaller animals, goats, sheep, chickens, calves etc. But we do still have 2 aged and colorful appaloosas geldings still hanging around. We have a small acreage that we is under constant development for sustainability, along with raising our own hay.
The garden is small but prolific and everything that is not eaten fresh during the summer is canned for winter. During the winter months a small greenhouse is used for growing cold tolerant vegetables.
Our Nubian and Alpine goats are milked daily for soap, milk shares and homemade cheeses. All are somewhat spoiled pets and have rather silly names. At first was a little overwhelmed on the amount of milk that was being produced, and researched uses and discovered Goats milk Soap, think that would just make some fir Christmas presents. But after making a few batches of the soap we were amazed at the softness of our skin. I graduated from Cosmetology School many years ago and have long sought out the best in skin care products, paying high exorbitant prices for the "best". Never thinking that a treasure could be found in goats milk right in my backyard. You can find us also a the local farmers markets, selling extra produce, lotions and soaps!
Many ask about our unusual quirky name, well it was derived from our Horse Farm name of "Dun-Over Appaloosas" we just put a Goaty twist on it!
