My family and I opened Thayer Family Homestead in 2016. Our goal is to leave a healthier and more knowledgeable generation behind us in regards to farming and raising animals ethically for self sufficiency. I have been working alongside horses for over 25+ years, I have been managing small and large livestock for over 21 years. I am whole heartedly in this industry to ethically raise various livestock and share my knowledge with anyone who will listen. There is a huge therapeutic benefit, both mentally and physically, when working outside with all of the worlds natural gifts and creatures. I want to be that person who makes this accessible to kids and adults and hope my passion and love for this will leave with everyone who has an experience with us.

If you love animals or even if you don’t come to this farm and you will fall in love! I got to feed, brush, bond with and ride horses, feed baby goats a bottle, milk a mama goat, play with adorable puppies, hold baby chicks, scratch the cutest little piglets and oh did I mention the puppies?! I fell in love. The whole family is so welcoming and had such a wonderful time. Thank you for such a wonderful experience I will definitely be back.

Lovely family oriented farm great for all ages! Cadi and her family were so sweet and informative too. Learning about how they acquired their farm animals, care for them and even which children care for which animals! Super sweet, friendly and smart kids :) Weather was sunny but enough wind for it not to feel hot. Water is also available. I sat on the ground and cuddled puppies and hugged so many of the animals and yes I got dirty but I dressed knowing I would do that. If you have the chance try this experience :)

10/10 recommend visiting if you are in Palm Springs! The area was magical, there were tons of animals to pet and feed, and the family is great! I loved feeding the horses, and my friend even took a ride on one across the property. Definitely a "do not miss" experience.

My wife and I had a great time on this adventure. It was the perfect timing when all of the baby animals were just getting up and around (puppies, baby goats, baby chicks that we held in the palm of our hands...and who could resist the baby piglets!). Cadi and her family were great hosts with tons of knowledge about their animals. Totally would recommend!
