Expect to see big changes! We are so happy to finally announce that after many years of leasing the property, Erin is now the proud owner of Stony Creek Farm!

The Farm Dogs
Everyone knows and loves Kye the Rhodesian Ridgeback; and what's not to love!? He is a mellow guy with a heart of gold. Did you know that he is a certified therapy dog? For visitors: Kye is deaf. He is also stealth and has the nose of a hound so beware... he might steal your food! Also, please be sure to shut all barn doors and gates behind you.
What farm would be complete without a Jack!? As the saying goes, "he may be little, but he is feirce." For visitors: JP is not actually feirce, but he does think he guards the farm; so if he barks - just ignore him! (We promise that he won't take it personally.) Did you know that JP actually stands for John Peterbuilt? He was named by Erin's son.
This Border Collie is owned by our Head Trainer (Dione), and takes his job on the farm VERY seriously. Many of you who visit will catch him assisting Dione in teaching a lesson, or doing one of his favorite jobs- supervising the goats!
For Visitors: Leo can be timid of strangers, so please let him come to you!
