Our Critters

At Fat Toaster Farm we raise registered Jacob Sheep, an old chicken, and well-cared-for barn cats. In the past we have raised Scottish Highland cattle, Silver Fox rabbits, and heritage chicken & turkeys. Our sheep are registered through the Jacob Sheep Breeders Association, of which Zach and Lindsay are members and Zach has served as a board member. Click the links below to find out more:


Here are some photos in remembrance of some favorite critters that are no longer at the farm.

During our first two years of farming we had Highland Cattle. These two beauties were Penny and Touch. They now live at Fernwood Farm in Fennville, MI.

These were the two Highland cow babies that were born on our farm. Solsti and Clover. They went to a nice family farm in Zeeland, MI.
