MEET THE FARM ANIMALS!
Our team is an incredible source of information, inspiration, and dedication to everything Huron Farm stands for. We’re so happy to work in something that we love so much, and invite you to learn more about us below.
Juliana/Vietnamese mini pig (female)
Ayla was born September 19, 2019 and spends her days outdoors and indoors. She is our mascot for the farm and is a wonderful pet! She love belly scratches and dandelions.
Registered Purebred German Shepherd (male)
Tank looks meaner than he is. He is our protector of the farm. Scaring away any other animal that enters our property, he is friendly with people. He was born October 29, 2010 and his greys are starting to show. If you come to the property, we ask that you do NOT bring any animals. He is a suck for a ball throw and loves his ears and chest scratched.
Registered Purebred Border Collie (female)
Jill is our newest family member to the farm that is in training to help with chores. Born May 22, 2021, she is such a sweetie and we are excited for our future adventures! Jill will plan on becoming a mother in May 2023. You will most likely be greeted by Jill with a smile and a butt wag.
New Zealand Rabbit (doe)
Betty was born February 2019. She is a large sized rabbit and very docile.
Flemish rabbit (buck)
Buster is a great buck that has a tame temperament and makes a great buck for breeding. He is on the smaller size of the typical “giant” but makes up for it in personality.
The barn cat (female)
She was the runt of her litter but makes up for in her fight. Rifle started as a house cat, but she was miserable indoors. Her personality changed completely the day she moved into the barn. She hunts rats and mice and lounges around protecting the animals when she can.
~~It is sad to announce that Rifle was found May 11, 2022 diseased. She lived a happy life and passed away at the age of 8 years old.~~
OUR FREE RANGED CHICKENS
Ameraucana (Easter Eggers), Australorp, Dominiqu (barred rock), Langshan, Leghorn, Wyndotte, Orpington, and more...
Our wonderful laying chickens live a wonderful life out at the farm! They have access outside for 13 hours a day. Their area is covered in tress, access to a large pond, and lots of bugs and grass to scratch up. The delicious taste of farm fresh eggs is by far amazing! Our eggs range in colours: Brown, blue, green, chocolate, pink, and white. We have completed our rainbow cartons!
JOHNNY AND JUNE
What a life for Johnny and June! They spend their time sun bathing, swimming in the pond, and protecting the chickens from predators. They are amazing at their job and mates for life.
Jumbo Pharaoh (mostly), White, and Tuxedo Coturnix
These fluffy butts are small (under 1lb), but do they ever produce! We love their sounds and enjoy watching them dust bath and live their happy lives at the farm.
Helmeted Black with white spots, Lavender with white spots
New to the farm, our best alarm system. Guinea fowl enjoy eating most of their diet in ticks and other insects to help the farm. Their feathers are stunning!
We are so thankful to have our newest addition of poultry on our farm. So new, the aviary isn't up and they are currently in the barn. We are excited to see the eggs and moulted feathers they will be providing. Along with pest control.
