If you play, she’ll sing!
An assortment of breeds, the “girls “ provide us with free range fresh eggs of various sizes and colors. If you’re interested you might like to gather some eggs. If our girls aren’t laying somebody at a neighboring farm will be. The “girls” are very sociable but if you don’t want them around you just shoo them away. No roosters in this bunch so you can sleep beyond sunrise.
We currently have three small dogs. Loretta was rescued from the local pound. She is enegentic and barks at the arrival of all guests. She eliminates the need for a doorbell! Once she getsto know you she will be your best friend. Rita is a rescue from Puerto Rico. She is even tempered and as sweet natured as a dog can be. Her favorite spot is on the sofa and she loves all of the attention she can get. Muggins is the newest and oldest of the group. He is very energetic and happy to see new people.
We are a dog friendly establishment so you may encounter a guest dog now and then, Our experience has been that dogs that travel with their owners are always will behaved. If you are allergic to or don't like dogs Green Ares may not be the best choice for you.
