Our home, perched upon a hilltop amongst large rock outcroppings, is situated on 60 acres of rolling green hills, nestled amongst pines, firs, larch and aspens trees, overlooking the towering Mission Mountains in Northwestern Montana. The name Blarney Heights Farm is derived from our Irish heritage. Our farm has a commanding view of the valley below, much like the famous Blarney Castle outside the small village of Blarney, Ireland. A day on our farm feels as if you’re in rural Ireland, gazing out across rolling green hills, rugged peaks, and green, lush forests.
Our intentions when buying our property was to develop a working farm, get back to our “roots” as self-sufficient, sustainable people, and to live a quiet, peaceful lifestyle while raising our family…little did we know this journey would make us busier than EVER…but the experience is more rewarding than we ever imagined!
Much has changed on our farm since we embarked on this journey. We have done extensive updates to our old log cabin, untold amounts of blood, sweat, and tears have been invested in the maintenance and upkeep of the farm, endless lengths of fencing have been replaced and repaired, and numerous types of livestock have been added. Here at Blarney Heights Farm, we raise Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Dexter Cattle, numerous heritage breed chickens, livestock guardian dogs, and little future farmers! We also provide first-class livestock transportation services throughout the United States. Needless to say, our lives are BUSY!
We love knowing where our food comes from, and knowing how our food was raised. All of our livestock are “grass fed,” and are provided no fillers, grain, or commercial feeds. Our livestock are provided fresh, clean, spring-fed water, sourced right here from the abundant springs on our property. We then transform this bounty into delicious meals from scratch for our family. The feeling of working hard for the homegrown food placed on your farm table makes the taste unforgettable.
The life we chose to live is by no means easy. Here in Northwest Montana, we have a bitter cold snow-filled winter. Our farm is frequently visited by North America’s largest predatory animals. Wolves, grizzly bears, black bears, and mountain lions all call our area home, making livestock and human safety a constant concern. Our farm is a rural existence, but it is this existence we have come to cherish. Nothing in life worth doing is easy, and our journey is no exception, but we would not have it any other way.
We thank you for your business and for visiting Blarney Heights Farm.
