Secretary, Treasure, Horse Trainer and Mother are just some of the daily jobs Vreni takes on. Growing up around horses in Switzerland it would only make sense that she continued her passion at home. And now those 16 pure bred Canadian horses take her mind off the constant shenanigans her 4 boys get into. Besides horses Mom also is a huge hand in the farm, whether its milking, feeding or getting our show animals in shape.

Claiming Jersey Canada’s Constructive Breeder award and multiple Hall of Fame Certificates on the way. In 2012 Adrian was the President of Jersey Canada, and continues to be an ambassador of the Jersey Breed.

Over the 22 years we have been in Canada we have been very fortunate to have Kirk Rutley as both a Relief Milker and one of our best friends. Honestly we don’t know how we’d do it without him.
Lexi Has been our fitter and just an awesome friend of the family for all our years in Canada. Lexi introduced us to the western show circuit and encouraged the 4-H program to the boys. To this day Lexi still helps Lone Pine prepare our animals for show day. And we appreciate it very much.
