Hi, my mom, Pat Randol was raised on a farm in Clarke County Iowa. Where her family helped raise a few goats, gardening, and her mother raised Collie dogs. She loved the country and after she got married, my mom and dad lived in a small town where they had a back yard garden, they finally got the opportunity to move to the country in Winterset Iowa. Where mom owned her own little bit of heaven on 12 acres. She had 3 goats, 3 dogs, 2 horses, couple dozen chickens and a fairly large garden area. They raised honeybees and sold the excess honey at local farmers markets until she passed away in 2021.
