Welcome to 14 Hands Ranch!

Hello, we are happy you have found us! Our ranch is located in the beautiful state of Kansas. We raise purebred Finnsheep, Dorper cross hair sheep, Lamancha dairy goats, chickens, and bees.

Please take a look around our website and check out our online farm store. On this site and our social media pages, you will get a glimpse of farm and family life, why we do what we do, and of course, the products that we have for sale.

You will find a variety of high-quality, handcrafted products. All of our all-natural Goat Milk Soap and Lotion are made from the nutrient-rich milk provided by our Lamancha dairy goats and made in small batches. Our Finnsheep produce beautiful wool in a variety of natural colors that we have prepared into yarn and roving at a fiber mill in Kansas. Finnsheep Yarn & Roving is perfect for knitting, crocheting, or felting. We offer shipping or local pick-up for all of our skincare and wool products in our Ranch Store.

If you are local to us, eggs are available most of the year and we offer butcher lambs, flowers, and honey seasonally. You can shop all of our local-only products in our Ranch Store as well.

On the blog, we share about our farm life, gardening, homeschooling, products, and whatever is on our minds. The monthly newsletter is also a great way to stay informed of new products, and specials. I always share about the ranch activities over the last month as well. Be sure to sign up for that at the bottom of the page.

Both of our families have been involved in various aspects of agriculture for several generations. Lance and I grew up on small farms and have known since we were married that we wanted to raise our children the same way. We started our farm several years ago with a handful of sheep and goats. As our farm has grown so have our dreams and goals.

We homeschool our youngest three children so occasionally we will share a glimpse into our homeschool life. Raising our kids in this lifestyle has been one of the best gifts we could give our children. They have learned the value of hard work, taking care of others (including livestock) before themselves, how to work together as a family, as well as many other life lessons.

Our farm goals are centered around working to improve and revive our severely overgrazed pastures, grow our livestock numbers, & make our ranch profitable through regenerative agriculture practices. This will not only make our soil healthier but our livestock and us as well.

In November 2022, we began hosting the first Fiber Flurry event at Sikes Venue in Leonardville, KS. This two-day event takes place the first weekend of November and celebrates all things natural fiber and fiber arts. You can find information for vendors, the fashion show, and a schedule for Fiber Flurry here.

Thanks for following along on our journey!
