Santa Sara Ranch from greeley, CO
Santa Sara Ranch

Page 1 of 1   Previous | Next
Farm Name: Santa Sara Ranch

Year Farm Established: 2007

Location: Carpenter, WY

Years I’ve been farming: 8 years

Animals I raise: None yet. I would like to start with chickens, then horses, a donkey, then maybe a few sheep or goats. I'm taking a class in August to learn how to make goats milk soap and will be able to make my own...fresh from the farm.

Crops I grow: None yet. Would like to have several different garden areas throughout the property. Little zones of happiness. A memory garden for my daughter with LOTS of orange and yellow flowers (her favorite colors), an herb garden, a vegtable garden, a wildflower meadow, a zen garden with a fountain and an area to do yoga and an art garden with "yard art" that I have created.

Hobbies I enjoy: Crafting, Soapmaking, Cooking, Hiking, Photography, Wildlife, and Researching ways to make my new farm successful.

Club/Associations memberships: Owner Hope Soaps. Handcrafted soaps for a cause. 50% of profits go to Children's Cancer Charities. website: http://soaponah- ope.com

The proudest moment on my farm: The day I bought the land and the dream began.
My daughter and I had a dream to have a ranch in Wyoming. I lost my daughter to cancer but I won't let our dream pass as well. She will have her ranch and her spirit will be there with me.

Pets: 2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Freckles and Patch.

Farm Motto: I don't fear death, I fear an unlived life.

Went to visit my place last weekend. Just made me wish I could be there sooner. The only noise was the sound of birds...and I can take that kind of noise any time.

Thanks for visiting my farm. Sounds like we both have the same idea for a good life-working from our farms. My family has been doing the Christmas trees for 65 years. We added the horses and I'm really hoping the folk school is a success. Sometimes it's more about detirmination than anything else. I think you are going about things the same way. When you want something bad enough you work much harder to succeed!

That sounds wonderful! I know it's not how you wanted to do it. But, if your rent isn't bad you can still be getting things started on your place. A lot of people here, have brought in travel trailers to live in while they get going.

Are you getting close to moving time? We havn't chatted for awhile. I've been busy at work, not as much time on the farm as I need to spend. Should be slowing down a little soon, that will help.

Dairy goats keep me very busy and then the growing season keeps me busy with the rest of the year, either planting, harvesting or canning!
Trenton, Fl is located about 30 miles west of Gainesville. That is the home to the University of Florida "Fighting Gators".
We have quarter horses. They are all mostly speed horses. Our daughters used them for barrel racing and rodeo games. Now they are too involved in college to play. lol
You have never tasted anything better than homemade ice cream or fudge made with raw goats milk. It makes the best desserts and gravy. Our girls produce about 3-7% butter fat with the exception of the Nigerians that produce around 13%.

Thank you for the welcome and the compliments. We are located about 35 Northeast of Denver, just East of the I-76 Brighton exit. We would love to introduce you to the alpaca lifestyle. Feel free to look at my website at www.snowmountainalpacas.com and next time you are in Colorado give me a call and come visit the alpacas for yourself. In the meantime, I am available to answer any questions you may have.

Thanks for visiting! Our peacocks are a hobby. We are so excited that we have had 12 peachicks hatch this season. Some will stay on our farm and the rest will be sold to others. Peafowl are so fun - very quirky animals!

  Thanks for your message
Really like the picture of the trees; are they trees on your farm? The only trees we have on our farm are pines and aspen, and mostly ones we have planted. From my farm you can see a mountain though, it's Pikes Peak. We moved to Colorado 11 years ago after being stationed in Germany for 10 years with the Army. My hubby is now retired from the Army and working at Colorado Springs Health Partners. I have been a horse lover all my life and am teaching Handicapped Riding Lessons at Pikes Peak Therapeutic Riding Center. This year I also started teaching from my own place and just love it.

  Pyrenees question....
My Pyrs are very cautious when strangers come. One of them just hangs back and watches. A lady that I bought a bunch of my goats from has Pyrs too. Hers come right up to greet you. I guess it's just a difference in dogs. I've read that they don't make good pets, but maybe it's just in the way they're raised. Mine are solely for the protection of my goats, and never come out of the goat pasture.

Sounds like you will have a great place! Lots of the same interests and plans that I have. I see you make soap. I've been wanting to give that a try lately. Can't find any classes around here. Any good books you can recommend?

Hi there, thanks for visiting my page. Our livestock guardian dog is a Maremma X Kuvaz. I have visited farms with both Maremmas and Great Pyrenese and these are the differences I have noted:
Maremmas are less of a 'patroling' livestock guardian meaning they don't spend as much of their time checking the perimeters of the farm. For us this is a bonus as we have quite a large farm and like the dog to stay closer to the animals. I also think maremmas are more outgoing (can be more aggressive) than your mellow great pyrenese. GP's are quite mellow guys with a calm demeanor. If you were a stranger approaching a farm I would much rather approach a GP than a maremma as they can be quite scary if they don't know you!
Good luck in the hunt and feel free to ask me anything else about these wonderful farm dogs :)
