Jake used to work for James and Carol Schott at Lamborn Mountain Farmstead and has now taken on their small goat herd enterprise. The couple is fairly new to farming but has taken the bull by the horns and has never looked back! Recently, Jake and Sharon have expanded their quaint, lovely farm by welcoming a herd of goats and baby chicks! As of now they are raising Nubian Saanen and Saanen Alpine goats both dairy milking breeds and pasture-raised chickens.

The next stop on my search for baby animals was The Living Farm , owned and operated by the Gillespie family since Not only does TLF have a rich history in the valley but it also has a rich diversity of little critters. While I was visiting, Lynn Gillespie took me on a tour of the farm where I quickly fell smitten to all the newborn lambs, baby chicks and overall beauty.
The best part however, was not just seeing the animals, but also cuddling with them too! TLF raise hundreds of chickens each year; both meat birds and laying hens. The Living Farm will soon be hosting self-guided interactive farm tours for people to experience the farming lifestyle firsthand, including petting and holding the baby animals.

Next on my list of farms to visit was Fire Mountain Fiber , a family owned fiber mill outside of Hotchkiss that raises animals a little less common, such as Icelandic Sheep, Angora and Cashmere Goats, and alpacas.
