Alan McKamey (co-owner)

Alan didn't grow up on the farm, however looking back now can't imagine life any other way.  He grew up in Plainfield Indiana.  He is a natural when it comes to farming and the livestock he raises. He is a fireman by trade and continues to work his day job while also working the farm. His favorite part of the farm are the hogs.  Alan and Amy became board members of the large black hog association in 2014.  He is the main muscle on the farm and does all of the major construction projects on the farm including fencing, building, and any repairs that need to be done.   His only regret to choosing the farming life style is that he didn't start 10 years ago.

Amy McKamey (co-owner)

Amy grew up on a small farm in Northern Indiana.  She was a 10 year 4-h member.  She always knew that animals would be a huge part of her life.  She has spent the past 20 years working in the veterinary profession and has enjoyed horses for most of that time.  She always dreamed she would find her way back to the farm, but didn't expect it to come true.  That is until Alan came into her life.  Together they have built this farm and now is living a dream come true.  Most of what she knows she learned from her family growing up. She loves everything about the farm but if she had to choose one thing it would probably be the ducks.  Her dad and her raised and showed ducks growing up and there is a special connection with them.  She is working to get the Ancona ducks recognized by the apa, and has also added a flock of the rare saxonies to the line up. She loves working with the breeding programs choosing breeders and raising all of the babies on the farm.  Together her and Alan share most tasks on the farm.  It is truly a family business.

 

 

Morgan Waggoner (Farm hand, son, poultry wrangler)

Morgan loves living on the farm and helping out especially with the chickens.  Like any kid he doesn't enjoy all aspects of farming such as weeding and carrying heavy buckets of water to the stock.  He is excited about his first year in big kid 4-h this year and is showing poultry, swine, and competing in archery.  His favorite part of the farm is the chickens.  He won two best of breeds at his first poultry show this past fall and loved every minute of showing.  When not helping with the poultry he can usually be found riding his bike through the mud, playing, or constructing something that always includes binder twine and sticks.

Tuff McKamey (poultry guardian)

Tuff is our poultry guardian.  This is a very important job at the farm.  He lives with our large flock of ducks and chickens enabling them to free range 24/7.  With him on guard we haven't lost a single bird to predators.  We also plan on breeding him this year and producing more wonderful guardians for other small farmers like us.  Tuff is priceless and without him we couldn't do what we do.

Josie McKamey (livestock guardian)

Josie is a very important part of our farm.  Although the wildest of our guardians she is proving to be the most versatile dog that we have.  Her main goal is to watch over the sheep, however she can be with any of the livestock on the farm and does quite well.  She has bonded well with the sheep and doesn't let anyone too close to them event the horses.  She has proven herself to be a wonderful addition to our farm and just like Tuff is priceless!  We plan to breed her to Tuff this year and hope to have many wonderful pups to share with other farmers in need.
