We are drawn to run down and forgotten properties, like a moth to a flame. Perhaps the artists palette? Maybe we are project people? But I like to think the land was calling for us, to come and bring her beauty and goodness out once again.
We have been biodynamic gardening since 1997 and so far we can produce enough food for our family, pasture animals, and raw fed dogs about 8-9 months out of the year, chemical free. This all starts with learning about the soil as a living being and knowing how important sweat equity is!
Our current Border Farm is our regenerative farm project - we have taken it from a neglected and dilapidated state to a thriving in the works production farm with produce, meat, dairy - and one hell of a view! The only way to really put it is our land wears my love large. In creating place, a place that has everything you want and need and love any which way you turn, you can feel the powerful energy coming back just stepping onto our farm.
I hope you can join us, Nancy

Treibball is like a moving puzzle between you and your dog, and creates great mental and physical exercise on both ends of the leash. The skills for this sport include – distance, directional (steering at a distance), changing pace and speed, and being able to communicate with each other while far apart, and it builds incredible Team work.
Treibball is working as a Team both close together and far apart, which can be applied to most every other thing you do with your dog during your day.
Treibball is for all ages, puppy to senior, as the dog chooses their pace/speed.
Treibball equipment is super lightweight and affordable.
Treibball can be played in the yard, a park, or a larger field.
Treibball can be a daily puzzle solving game for you and your dog, or a competition sport.
Treibball never gets old, working with distance, directional, steering, pushing, and Team work, there are absolutely endless ways to play!
