Critter Corner


Most things that involve our animals here, we design and create on our own. We tend to be very handy in that respect! All the posts attached to this page will be tutorials for DIY projects to help you and yours around the farm.

Oh and HEY! While you’re here, over on the right hand side, see those little heart shaped buttons? There’s Pinterest, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Give us a like and a follow over there too! Day to day pictures, crazy stories from the critters, and other happenings get posted on those almost daily as well! I’d love to have you join us!
