FLIP FLOP RANCH

Stay on a Real Working Farm

Come milk a goat, collect eggs and relax with your family in the peaceful atmosphere of a farm! Wake up to the sound of roosters and enjoy watching your children become farm kids.

``Serina's farm is a fantastic place to have a real farm experience! So many fun animals to interact with - whether it's feeding, brushing, milking, holding - they are all warm hosts to city folks. We brought our kids (ages 5,5,3&2) and there is something there for everyone. We fed the animals twice per day, much to the delight of our children, brushed Bologne the Pony, milked Midnight and chased Rocky Road around the pen! Adults will find the experience equally as interesting and fun ūüôā Her home is very clean, stocked in the kitchen with lots of different items, and comfortable private rooms for all. We were a little cold one night and she brought over blankets for us right away. Don't hesitate to book this listing - it's a blast and Serina is fantastic!``

What our Guests are saying

``This was the first time that our kids did not use any electronics during the reunion, which says enough about how great this place offers them other activities to stay engaged. It's a privilege to experience this traditionally operated farm, where you get to feed the animals, learn about them, play with them, and even enjoy the chicken eggs and goat milk! We were well accommodated in the house and had a relaxed weekend. We look forward to going back again!``--Xin, guest

ENDANGERED LIVESTOCK PRESERVATION

Discover our

Farm

The world has lost 60 breeds in only the past five years making that one breed becoming extinct every month. We believe it’s vitally important to maintain the genetic diversity of livestock and crops and keep these creatures from extinction.

We currently raise endangered chickens (Dorkings and Australorps), geese (Cotton Patch Geese), Turkeys (Bourbon Red), ducks (Ancona), pigs (Guinea Hogs) and goats (Nigerian Dwarf Goats). We raise heritage, open-pollinated, Non-GMO plants in our garden and orchards.

Sunken Garden Beds
