Jacob Sheep

Let me pass through all your flock today, removing from it every speckled and spotted sheep and every black lamb, and the spotted and speckled among the goats, and they shall be my wages.

Dairy Goats

 And thou shalt have goats’ milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens.

Livestock Guardian Dogs

The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them.

Choose this day whom you will serve...But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Our Father’s Gift is a family run farm in Castalian Springs TN.  We raise Jacob sheep, goats, and livestock guardian dogs.

We love teaching people about our farm and its animals, and showing people how to milk our goats, make cheese, butcher, and other skills that we have learned in the over 10 years that we have been farming. We believe in treating our animals in a natural and ethical way, as close as we can to what God intended. We also sell raw Jacob fleeces, needle-felted crafts, yarn, and woven items.

We are active members of 4-H, the American Dairy Goat Association, the Jacob Sheep Breeders Association, and Pick Tennessee Products.

Our home is a log cabin that was originally built some time between 1850-1870.  In the 1980’s it was completely disassembled and rebuilt using the original logs, stones, and floorboards, as well as logs from other historical sites.   The original chimney stones were used to build to current foundation.
