Farm Life

Our Story

How the Bakers came to be Farmers

Homecoming Ranch began many years ago with a dream of building a farm that would bring everyone home: where Mom and Dad could work from home to build a healthy, happy life for their family in the country by raising high quality goats for meat and milk. The dream grew and was refined as the family farm moved from five acres to twenty acres to the current 98-acre farm located in the lush, green hills of southern Ohio. Over time, the addition of Scottish Highland cattle to the farm was made as the vision expanded to include providing premium beef to the local community and our expanding customer base.

 Our goal is to develop a ranch management style that is regenerative and sustainable. Instead of depleting nutrients in the soil, exhausting water supplies and disrupting the local environment, we aim to develop practices that improve the health and condition of the land. Highland cattle and most breeds of goats are known for improving the quality of pastures through their foraging habits, and intensive, rotational grazing increases soil fertility while reducing waste and dependence on outside food sources such as hay or grain. These practices contribute to the wellbeing of the land, the animal, the ranchers, and the customer!

Homecoming Ranch is truly about building a home for family and friends: a place for loved ones to gather, to experience the joys of farm-life and building strong family relationships through meaningful work and play. It is a labor of love (emphasis on labor) to provide a foundation for learning and employment for the current and coming generations, for all who want to invest in and be a part of the family business. While it was built for and run by family, friends and strangers are invited to become a part of the mission and vision of the Ranch, whose doors are open to teaching, learning, and growing with our neighbors, near and far.
