My name is Boone, and in 1984, my family had a beautiful dairy farm in Oregon, it was an amazing place to be a kid. I can still remember playing outside with my two best friends. Our family had been dairy farming for over 70 years. And then in 1992 we had to give up the farm, move to Washington State, and live below the poverty level to qualify for help with the cost a lifesaving medication I needed to treat a genetic disease called Gaucher.
I was seven at the time, doctors had told my mother I would probably only live to be 8 or 9. Thankfully I got and remain on treatment and am healthily today. Until recent healthcare laws changed I still had to live below the poverty level to qualify for help with the $250,000+ a year cost of my medicine. Now laws give me the opportunity to get medicine and have dreams for the future also. I have begun farming again, and I dream of creating a place many people and families can enjoy together.
We plan to make Bossy Acres Club a place where families and friends can come and enjoy farm yard games in the company of animals. Our vision is creating a CSA (community supported agriculture) style farm, in which club members can have access to fun outdoor experiences, get natural locally grown food, and can share in the joys of farming.
Bossy Acres Club is in the process of becoming Animal Welfare Approved. Our animals are raised in a natural environment where they have access to pasture all the time, free choice grass hay, and treated with kindness. Please come on out and see for yourself.
