Fat Dog Farm

Fat Dog Farm Organic Farm
Book
Lover of Animals Fat Dog Farm is the vision of Aleah Wicks and Andrew Makee. Together, with a flock of twenty chickens, three horses, three cats and a fat dog, the farm follows biodynamic and organic practices.

Founded in late 2011, Fat Dog Farm is in its initial stage, incorporating an Acupuncture practice and minor sales of eggs, chickens and produce. By 2014, the Fat Dog Farm vision includes vineyards, orchards, and a small scale creamery. Our primary emphasis is benefiting people, pets, and plants while honoring the environment for generations to come. Thank you for visiting. Please stop back again soon as the farm continues to transform.
