Welcome to the Ranch!

Oak Hill Ranch began with a simple dream of living off the land. When we moved to the ranch in 2016, it had been neglected and vacant for years. Since then, we have been working hard creating the homestead that we have envisioned. We hope this will be a place to teach our children the satisfaction of working the land, the responsibility of caring for farm animals, and to enjoy the fruits, (and vegetables) of their labors!

So far, our efforts have resulted in a chicken coop that is home to 12 chickens, a pasture that is home to five Boer goats and five Dorset sheep, 130 sq. feet of garden beds, three rabbits, nine baby bunnies (kittens), two cats, a great Pyrenees dog, a miniature pot belly pig, three hogs, 7 piglets, and soon a honey bee colony. Our goals for this year include adding a barn, updated fencing, purchasing two head of cattle, a bigger garden area, and a fruit and nut orchard.

We feel grateful for all that we have been given, and feel it is time to share our ranch with others who share our same vision. We are excited to now offer farming immersion sessions for you and your children to enjoy, beginning June 12, 2018. Sessions will include animal and plant science, personal safety, community service, nature inspired art and handicrafts, food preparation, and wood working.

  1. Wow! I love this! I’d like to bring my day care to Oak Hill ranch this fall. I’d like to start w Ayers and see how it goes. If it works out I think our other 9 locations would be interested as well. Let’s talk!
