Welcome to our farm!
We are Scott, Tanya, Alex and Jordan. Ours is a small family farm located in Upstate South Carolina. A little town called Belton, in an area affectionately referred to by the locals as "Possum Kingdom". Tanya's parents moved here 38 years ago when she was a child and now her own family lives on the street she grew up on.
Both Scott and Tanya grew up with horses. From dressage to rodeo...from trail riding to team penning...the interests varied, but always horses! As Alex and Jordan grew old enough, they joined in as well. We are now thrilled to see our children enjoying the same activities we grew up loving. Its truly a family affair.
Tanya grew up with American Paint Horses, so thats what we've always had. Early in 2002, we discovered the wonderful world of Gypsy and Drum Horses. After almost two years of research and decision making, 'DF Chalk Talk' joined the family. The Drum Horses and Drafts have taken us on a journey that we have enjoyed every minute of. We have exhibited and introduced the Drum Horse to folks all over the country and now even have a Breyer Horse in the family! Chalk's first son 'Mariah's Boon' of Moonlit Acre. We are no longer actively breeding and our farm has shifted focus somewhat, but we are still very involved with the breed and we are happy to talk to anyone about them.
In 2008 we began taking steps toward becoming a self sufficient, self sustaining farm. With the gardens we grow and the livestock we choose, we continue to advance toward that goal. To that end we have added dairy goats to the farm. More specifically, the Lamancha breed. We are now also a licensed Grade A Raw Goat Milk Dairy and a cheese producing creamery is in the works. Visit the Possum Kingdom Kreamery page for more information.
Come on in and meet our family...both human and non-human. We have the privilege of sharing our lives with some amazing creatures.
