I tend to my flock of sheep and goats almost on a daily basis with my dogs, Clubber Lang, Rollo, and Jeremy. Scroll down for a detailed bio on LGG.

Laughing Goat Gardens Bio
Laughing Goat Gardens was started in 2015 as a hobby garden. We have grown to become a market garden offering fresh mixed vegetables 7 months out of the year. We are working on a method to offer fresh produce all year round. We started offering pasture-raised and pasture finished (most may refer to this as grass fed) beef in 2018. Our cattle are raised on pasture grazing the native vegetation with minimal input such as grain, we do supplement nutrients but only during times of stress, mainly drought.
Our cattle are on pasture for 99.9% of their lives for that reason we call our beef, pasture raised and pasture finished beef.
We also have a limited amount of pasture raised lamb and goat that we offer to the local community. This can be processed or live animal, 99% of our local community prefer live animal because processing a sheep or goat is a family event and is mostly done during special occasions. In the summer of 2019 we started offering fresh eggs. Our eggs come from cage free, free range chickens who enjoy the fresh air and sunlight in our garden areas. They are also our tillers. We use them to prepare our gardens for planting. In 2020, we processed our first batch of meat birds. Our meat birds and layers are also pasture raised on native vegetation along with free choice of layer feed for the egg layers and meat bird feed for our meat birds. Our chickens get scratch grain once per day and they enjoy the sunshine, fresh air, plenty of space to run around and just being chickens. In the future we plan to implement pigs. This is a dream that requires planning and having a specific layout on our land.
With our dreams and goals for the ranch we are first and foremost stewards of the land. We may raise animals and produce but to do that we look beneath our feet and that is what we take care of the most. Without proper management of our land we would not be able to grow pasture raised, pasture finished meat and our variety of fresh produce. We have implemented the regenerative agriculture method on our ranch to create a healthier ecosystem.
