The Beginning....

The name of our farm started out as a joke when we bought 3 goats because we didn’t own a house or farm land. The name really grew on us though and it was a very accurate name so it stuck. My name is Katherine and my other half's name is Greg, we own Nein Haus Farms. The interesting part about Nein Haus Farms is there is no "Farm." We dont own any "dirt" property, farm or otherwise. The first question on your mind is likely "How does someone have a farm without dirt or land?" The answer is fairly straight forward. We own a farm meaning we have the animals and hay fields and equipment but we don’t own farm land. We rent hay fields in exchange for part of the hay and we rent barns in exchange for livestock feed. What this means basically is that after work we go to the rented barns or rented hay fields and do what needs to be done whether it is making hay or milking goats. We are farmers without a farm, farming none the less.
