Mitch and Charo

 

My husband Mitch is as crazy about his little cows as I am my donkeys and dogs. We have the cows because we enjoy them! We have one incredible bull, our beloved “Charo”, and ten or so cows. We produce a few calves for sale each year Please feel free to let us know if you would like to be notified of available calves.
