New Farm Stand Hours
We are changing our hours for the Spring to accommodate more customers and allow us to provide a wider variety of farm-fresh products for you. We are now open Monday through Saturday, from 1 pm. -- 7 pm. We are closed Sunday.
If you need to stop by outside of these hours, please make an appointment to do so.
Want to Tour the Farm?
We know you are as excited about the farm and animals as we are (especially the baby goats!). And we would love to show them to you! However, because we are a working farm (and we both have off-farm jobs), we cannot accommodate impromptu requests for tours. Thank you for respecting our time and privacy.
Instead, we will be scheduling farm tours for Fridays, after 1 p.m. for a small fee of $5 per person ("babes in arms" are free). Tours run between 1/2 an hour to an hour in length. Please call or text to make a reservation: 714.869.8379. This allows us to set aside the time we really need to give you a good experience (and secure our livestock guardian dog or any roaming pigs that might get too "friendly" with unexpected guests). Your educational tour will include a visit with all of our animals, a walk through our milking parlor, and information about our farming practices and the specific breeds of animals that we keep. Of course, there's always lots of room for Q&A.

Fresh Flower Bouquets
I'm excited to offer fresh flower bouquets in the farm stand this Spring. These bouquets are available while supplies last, and include a mix of roses, lilies, gladiolus, poppy, irises, and other blooms that we grow here on our farm. At $12 a bunch (the glass jar/vase is not included), they are a beautiful and aromatic way to brighten your Spring table.
Goat Milk Body Lotion and Facial Moisturizer
We've been enjoying the benefits of goat milk to our skin for a long time. And now we're ready to share it with you. We have two new products that you are guaranteed to love. Both are packed with natural, organic ingredients that will promote your skin's youth and maintain balanced moisture.
Goat's milk is rich in essential fatty acids and triglycerides and has a PH similar to our own, so it's less irritating and more readily absorbed into your skin. Goat milk also contains selenium, vitamin A, and lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid, or AHA) that helps to exfoliate, hydrate, and brighten skin.
For my facial moisturizer, I infuse avocado, grapeseed, and coconut oils with grapeseed extract and green tea (both antioxidants), lavendar, chamomile, and calendula (for healing and soothing). These are combined with rose hip oil (essential fatty acids, vitamin E, vitamin C and B-carotene, a form of vitamin A) and rosemary essential oil (its antimicrobial and antiseptic properties are beneficial in eliminating eczema, acne, and oily skin), and then blended with our own aloe and goat milk, This moisturizer is unscented.
For my body lotion, I add essential oils for fragrance, as well as shea butter.
You can't put goat milk in a body product without using a preservative. As someone who is very careful about what I put on my skin and in my body, I have steered clear of preservatives and other chemicals. But after a lot of research, I feel comfortable with the preservative Optiphen (Phenoxyethanol and Caprylyl G). It's paraben- and formaldehyde-free and constitutes less than 1% my products' formula. I'm pleased to have found a safe preservative that will allow me to take advantage of all the beneficial properties of goat milk.
Both of these products can be sampled and purchased in the farm stand. Come check 'em out!!
