Welcome

Fat Dog Farm is the vision of Aleah Wicks and Andrew Makee. Together, with a flock of twenty chickens, three horses, three cats and a fat dog, the farm follows biodynamic and organic practices. Founded in late 2011, Fat Dog Farm is in its initial stage, incorporating an Acupuncture practice and minor sales of eggs, chickens and produce. By 2014, the Fat Dog Farm vision includes vineyards, orchards, and a small scale creamery. Our primary emphasis is benefiting people, pets, and plants while honoring the environment for generations to come. Thank you for visiting. Please stop back again soon as the farm continues to transform.

Meet the Animals

Soon, it will also be home to mini-Scottish Highland cattle. The animals on Fat Dog Farm are our heart and soul, and we ensure a high quality of life and advocate a stewardship for all living things.

Biodynamics


biodynamicsAndrew Makee utilizes the spiritual, ethical, and ecological approach to food production and nutrition called Biodynamics. As with all biodynamic farms, Fat Dog Farm strives to create a diversified and balanced ecosystem that generates health and fertility as much as possible from the farm itself. By working in cooperation with the cosmos, the soil, the plants and animal health, biodynamic farmers restore and harmonize the soil and vital forces of the farm to enhance the nutrition, quality, quantity and flavor of the food being raised.
