When our daughter, Ali, was 2 years old, (1996) she decided she wanted a horse. She saved every penny, at first in a jar, then a piggy bank and finally a savings account at Bank of America. By the time she was 6 she had over $1200 saved. She declared she was ready for a horse. We asked her to take lessons first. She began taking lessons in english riding, with dressage. Ali quickly advanced to jumping. In 2001, we went to look at a horse advertised in a local paper. When we arrived the horse was in very sad condition. He was being starved, neglected and in very very poor health. She insisted on purchasing him, just to get him out of this life of hell on earth. We brought him home, named him Humphrey Bogart and named our farm Hope Haven.
Throughout the years, our family has developed a fantastic reputation for caring for animals. Though not a non-profit, we have taken in many animals and helped them to find a better path in life, or given them a life-long home with us. In 2001 we bought our first little hobby farm of 2 acres. We grew organic vegetables, potatoes, herbs, and lots of fruits. Our fascination of goats began in a similar manner as horses. We adopted a bottle baby buck and used him and another goat extensively for clearing blackberry bushes in the Pacific Northwest. We have been been raising goats since 2003.
We moved up to a larger farm of 5 acres in 2005 and incorporated an organic orchard of pears, apples, cherries, asian pears, and berries. In 2010 by husband followed Boeing to the Charleston area and we purchased a historic farm house (haunted) and 20 acres. We made a great contact for locally grown hay. The gentleman who sold us hay, offered us 3 goats that he had been given. We accepted and had no idea that 5 months later those 3 goats would each have twins. We discovered the gorgeous nature of FRESH organic goats milk and have begun making artisan cheeses. We are excited to continue in business as a family and grow our endeavor to bring more products to the public and share our way of life and philosophies of kindness.
Plans for 2021, transition to Organic and open a Non-Profit section for our Goat and Donkey sanctuary. Also, we will begin hosting dog events, training, agility and herding. Subscribe to our newsletter for all the newest events.
