New Puppy on the Farm!

Now that the dust has settled a bit after Christmas I wanted to take a quick moment and post a video of the newest addition to our farm. In another life I bred show quality Golden Retrievers, I retired from the business a little over 10 years ago but our phone still rings periodically of people looking for Golden puppies. The word of mouth and referrals I get are unbelievable, and can be accredited to solid customer support before and after the sale, but that is another blog post in itself. 


Our youngest daugther was in love with Ellie, one of our house dogs who passed away a little over a year ago. She still talks about her often, and we decided that this Christmas we would buy her a new dog. Here is a quick video we shot on Christmas day.

Last Minute Holiday Shopping - The Ecofriendly Version

There is not enough time in the day to run the Farm, Manage the Businesses, Keep our House in a presentable condition, and then on top of all that Plan, Decorate, and Shop for the Holidays. To save time we have been doing a lot of our shopping online this year, particularly doing business with Certified Green and Eco-Friendly businesses based in the United States.

We want our Holiday Shopping money to benefit hard working American Families, the story behind each product and how it is made is so important to us and more consumers need to realize that their is a lot more costs than just the bottom price.

When you have a free moment, head over to and watch their 20 minute video. It goes into great detail about who benefits exactly benefits from the current way consumers are spending money.

If you are looking to shop at "Guilt Free" stores across the country, be sure to head to Greener Pasture's Blog, where they list 54 Eco-Friendly Stores with 54 Holiday Discounts.


 This year we asked Santa for more hours in the day! 

Happy Holidays to all from Golden Touch Farm!

Thanksgiving on the Alpaca Farm

We are posting this now because we won't have a chance tomorrow with the whirlwind that is our Thanksgiving tradition. Each year we invite family and friends over to our farm and cook up a massive meal and enjoy each others company. This year we will be hosting for over 30 people and cooking a 25lb Turkey as well as a Ham. Needless to say, it will be busy around these parts tomorrow, actually starting a few days ago, but once we are in full swing I am certain I will not be around the computer.

We wanted to take this moment to wish you all a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving.  Although this year has certainly been one for the History bokos, and not all in the positive light, what we have learned more than ever is above anything else, You can always count on your Family and close Friends and that is what we will be celebrating this year.

To get you in the mood, below is a video we shot last winter of Wild Turkeys that graze our yard from time to time. Not all turkey's are for eating! Over the years they have become more and more part of our family and I think they feel the same way. Enjoy the Video!

Note: If the video stutters for you, hover your mouse over the video and click the HD On button to set it off. It also helps to let the video fully load before hitting play.
