Hi! My family purchased a farm in eastern Colorado when I was 8 years old. I grew up raising sheep and all sorts of other farm animals for meat, breeding, and 4-H. We also raised a lot of garden items for our family use. My Father was raised in a very rural area too and loved teaching us about farm life. I went to college to study Agriculture and then worked in the gardening industry, and many other jobs for 10 years, while being a military wife and raising my son. I never lost my love of gardening and raising animals and wanted so much to farm and ranch again. It has been incredible to be able to not only share this with my son, but to also with Gary, who is learning so much and teaching me to appreciate it all so much more. Thanks for enjoying our stories and Bless you, Marilan.
Hello, I grew up in Illinois, in the subberbs of Chicago. I never had the opportunity to experience any kind of farm life, although we lived near people who did. I spent ten and a half years serving in the Army as a Tank mechanic, and due to life changes I deceided to get out and stay in Colorado. Life and fate brought Marilan and I together. A real Blessing to me, I feel she was God sent and am thankful every day. I always had a desire to have some land, and have animals, chickens in particular. We have been truly blessed, and I feel we are living the dream. I hope this web site is both informative and enjoyable to all that take the time to take a glance, enjoy and God bless, Gary.
