Slate Hill Farm

Slate Hill Farm started as a dream of ours many years ago. We currently raise Flemish Giant Rabbits and many breeds of chickens. We recently moved to our current home and can't wait to start gardening!!!! I am really into organic gardening and permaculture.

We have three dogs- Angel, Puck and Thisbe. Angel is a rott/dobe mix that is now being called a rotterman and she is 10 years old and can still walk the back of the couch. I attribute this to rawfeeding and whole prey model of rawfeeding. Puck is an 8 year old Chihuahua mix who is really grumpy right now as we got Thisbe who is a Chihuahua and is 4 months old. Puck hates Thisbe with a passion, of course it may be because she likes to jump on his head! We are trying to train her out of this. Thisbe and Angel love to play together, which is hilarious to watch. This always ends with Angel giving Thisbe a thorough bath.

We have a pet common snapping turtle named Charlie. He is 3 years old and we have had him since he was the size of a quarter. He now weighs about 5 lbs. He loves to get baths in the kitchen sink and realllllly loves it when I scrub his shell with a toothbrush. We have contracted with a friend to have a pond dug so that he can have lots of room to swim in. We plan to stock the pond with different types of fish for both him and us.
