About Honeyman Creek Farm

Honeyman Creek Farm is home to Eric and Sheila Blackford and their house dog, Hana, and her buddy Moku the mouser along with a variety of healthy and happy farm family: horses Blues & Alula, miniature donkeys Noxema & Algebra and a pair of Italian Maremmas Gina and Rocco who oversee the safety of everything and keep four-legged predators away from the Suri alpacas and heritage geese, ducks and chickens. Maremma is an American version of the Italian name “Maremmano-Abruzzese” and these beautiful big white dogs have livestock guardian built into their genetic code. Right now there is a litter of 7 Maremma pups born April 27, 2014 – 5 females and 2 males who have yet to open their eyes. Stay tuned and watch them grow into fine future livestock guardians before they begin going to new farms and ranches at 8 to 10 weeks.

  1. Please add a large quilting shed. Windows all around with screens so the windows can be thrown open in the nice weather, gas stove in the middle, half bath and a small kitchen (frig and sink only). It would be so wonderful to quilt and listen to and watch the farm animals, and watch the season come and go. Ahhhhh.

  2. Let me be the first to wax poetic on the virtues of Honeyman Creek Farm eggs – I just consumed a large duck egg over easy after a 32 mile bike ride – talk about great recovery fuel! When are the vineyards going in?

    • Thanks, Chas! We can’t wait to have you and Eva visit and you can help collect duck eggs. Duck eggs have twice the nutritional value of a chicken egg and remain fresher longer because of their thicker shell.
