“We have a small homestead near the Kinnards. They farm sit for us about once a month and have been a huge blessing. Reliable, honest, fair priced and hard working (especially Eli). Our animals are always taken care of just as if we were home. If you need someone to help while you are away, rest assured, the Kinnards are the best!!!”
“The Kinnards and their son Eli were hired to look after our farm/animals while we were away. Eli did a wonderful job! He listened intently to all instructions and followed them exactly. He was on time and communication was great. We rested easy knowing that all was taken care of. When we got back it was exactly as if we were never away. So thankful for their services! We will be using Eli in the future for all of our farm sitting needs!”
The Kinnard Homestead is a priceless resource to have available locally! We’ve used this wonderful family for farm and pet sitting more than once, and they did an amazing job with our sheep, chickens, and rabbits! I even forgot I had a package arriving with vitamins that needed to be kept refrigerated and they were able to take care of that for me. I found them punctual and trustworthy and highly recommend them. Because they have animals themselves, they have knowledge that many local companies just don’t possess.
We also purchased our Dorper Ram from their farm, and he’s like a puppy. Very sweet with our kids and his ladies. Thank you Kinnard Homestead!
“We utilize the Kinnard’s pet boarding services for our family’s goats while out of town. Our minds are at ease knowing they are safe and in good care. We enjoy pictures of our happy and stress free goats during their stay away from home. I can recommend the Kinnard’s services if you need safe animal care!”
