Food Fiber Family

Welcome to My Barefoot Farm! My name is Sam and I raise dairy,beef, pork and fiber in the beautiful state of Georgia.

My husband works full time in the Emergency Room while I stay home to care for our 8 children and farm. 

Cheesemaking is my passion and my goal is to eventually build and operate a raw milk micro dairy for farmstead cheeses. 

My dairy cows are Jersey and my fiber animals are alpaca, along with Teeswater and Wensleydale sheep. These longwool sheep are sheared twice a year and produce beautiful and soft locks for spinning.

I love to document my farming and family adventures on my blog, and I also love to encourage others who want to start farming.

Please stay and browse through my site and as always, thank you for supporting a small farmer.

Small Farmers on a Mission

Just 9 years ago we were living the suburban life in a nice, respectable neighboorhood with friendly neighbors. After discovering we were expecting our 5th baby, we began to dream of more outdoor space for animals and honeybees.

We were fortunate to find 30 acres to buy at auction for a price within our budget.

Today we have 8 children, a small herd of dairy and beef cows, and a modest flock of fiber animals. We have grown from back yard chickens and honeybees to a family sized farm with a varied collection of animals.

Over the last few years we have strived to learn more and to share our knowledge in hopes of encouraging others who want to begin their journey into farming. Thank you for following as we share our adventures and experiences as we continue to grow.

To foster support and encouragement for small, local farmers. To continue to learn as we expand and grow. To nurture relationships with other farmers and families.

Teeswater Lambs in Georgia

Lambing Season produced some beautiful Teeswater and Wensleydale lambs for fiber here! I love the Teeswater and Wensleydale because their wool has such beautiful curly locks that can be lock spun. The wool also takes dye super well, which means vibrant colors that...

Raw Milk Ice-cream, the Recipe

When we brought home our very first family milk cow, we were excited to try a raw milk ice-cream recipe. I tried several different recipes before I finally came up with one that was super simple and super delicious. Over the years we have used this recipe as a base...
