Our goal is simply an effort, not to return to the past, but to use our past experiences along with knowledge gained from others, to make our lives richer, healthier, and more productive. Using old style tried and proven gardening techniques and old fashioned family canning recipes handed down thru generations, we are growing, processing, and preserving our fruits and vegtables, as well as our heritage, much in the same manner our ancestors did. Our livestock shares the bounty of the land with us, consuming grass, hay and grains produced here, as well as fruit and vegetable by-products not used in the canning process.
Also here at Somewhere Place Else Farm, we have adopted a somewhat non-traditional method of animal experience, and that is to provide more human interaction. By treating our dogs, goats, chickens, and other livestock more as individuals and less like a food or income source, we have achieved a sense of a common bond by sharing this farm and life together, which has resulted in mutual benefits for both the animals and our family as well.
We believe every animal has a unique personality and disposition. Because of this, every animal needs to be recognized and treated as special. We believe in the natural approach to raising our goats and dogs. While the animals forage the pastures and woods, our Great Pyrenees naturally roam the livestock areas and homeplace, offering superior guardian instincts to protect from predators on foot and in the air.
