Thanksgiving 2018

11/15/2018 8:48 PM

2017 family pixWe are excited to celebrate Thanksgiving in just a few days! This year we are excited to be celebrating for the second time with our foster sibling pair, Rosie and RJ, as well as for the first time with foster baby Grayson, and newest grandchildren, Eleanore and Dawson. 
 
While the farm never closes, we take it easy on Thanksgiving. After caring for our animals, we will all head inside for a giant family dinner. Our mom spends hours preparing a delicious meal made from ingredients we either grew ourselves or that were locally grown. Our turkey is always a farm fresh bird (some years we have even raised and processed our own). A fun tradition is everyone bringing their signature dish to share. 
 
We take time to remember some of what we have to be thankful for, such as our health, our business, our farm, and of course our friends and family - and we can’t forget our customers! Without you, our dream becoming reality wouldn’t be possible. We are grateful not just on Thanksgiving but every day that God has blessed us in so many ways. 
 
Starting today and throughtout the weekend, we would love to say “thank you” to you by offering 25% off our entire online store by using code “THANKFUL” at check out!*
 
How are you celebrating Thanksgiving this year? Comment below or tag us on social media!
 
*Offer valid 11/16/18 12:01am through 11/19/18 11:59pm EST on online order prior to taxes and shipping. Offer not applicable when combined with any other offer or sale. Offer has no cash value.

Halloween

10/31/2018 12:32 PM

Image may contain: 1 person, outdoor

2018 is flying by! Halloween marks the end of October and feels like the unofficial beginning of winter, especially with the chilly temperatures we have been having. 

 

As a family tradition, the older siblings always take the younger siblings trick or treating. After they get back home, the older siblings “inspect” the candy to see what they want out of the batch. Once the older kids get their pick, dad gets his share of the goods. At the end of all the “inspecting”, the younger siblings get to take the rest of the candy.

 

The little girls (Daisy and Rosey) are going as characters from Grease and baby RJ is going to be a giraffe. Meysha has decided to go as a vampire, which was Jaklyn’s favorite costume growing up. Unfortunately for Jaky, it’s looking like Dawson is going as “unborn” so, she has decided on going as the famous April the giraffe.

 

Rachyl, Izek and some of their friends celebrated last Friday by attending a harvest celebration at Faith Family Church. Although not an alternative for Halloween, there were many fall activities and decorations while they joined fellow church friends for a few hours.

 

While our farm is not open to the public, we encourage you to go visit one of the many small farms in Rhode Island who offer Halloween and fall-related activities such a petting zoos, corn mazes, pumpkin picking, hayrides, and more! 

 

Check out our social media for pictures of our costumes and be sure to tag us so we can see yours. Happy Halloween!

Jaklyn and Derek's Anniversary

9/25/2018 3:19 PM

Today Jaklyn celebrates her third wedding anniversary. Together they are the proud (and exhausted) parents of two year old Daisy and soon-to-be born Dawson. They plan to have two more biological children, and are exploring foster care. 

Two years ago was the first Travis sibling wedding, the one that started them all. Since then, brother Kelub has married Leesa (now parents to Ava and Ellie), oldest sibling and brother Mical has married Crystal (fur parents to Xena and Titan), and brother Jekub is planning a 2020 wedding with fiancée Sadie. With 4 of the 8 siblings expanding their own families, the Travis clan is growing quickly!
 
Derek and Jaky had a beautiful church ceremony - a special request from our dad, David. They rode in an antique truck to the photo locations before partying the night away on our farm. Our dad and brothers built a barn which was christened with their wedding reception. 
 
Join us in wishing Derek and Jaklyn a happy anniversary by leaving your best marriage or house hunting advice below or on any of our social media profiles!

Mical and Crystal Get Married

9/11/2018 3:58 PM

On September 1, Mical married our newest sister, Crystal. It was a beautiful outdoor setting with mostly traditional elements followed by a party, redneck style. Friends and family gathered together to celebrate their wedding (finally!). 
Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, standing and outdoor 
They had a giant wedding party which consisted of siblings Jekub, Kelub, Noah, Mike, Jaklyn, and Rachyl along with friends and Crystal's brother Michael and their dearest friend, Desiree, officiated the ceremony.  Long time friend, Chad was the best man and his girlfriend, Marissa was the maid of honor. 
Image may contain: 14 people, people smiling, wedding and outdoor 
With only two months to plan, their big day included many DIY aspects, making it all the more meaningful to not only the happy couple, but their guests as well.
 
Now back from their honeymoon up north, Mical and Crystal have plans to move out of state and start a family, adding human babies to their fur babies, Xena and Titan. Both are free spirits with unconventional ideas that sometimes stress out the more traditional members of our families. With their carefree attitudes, we can see them traveling coast to coast in their camper living a nomadic lifestyle or settled down on their own land somewhere.

Celebrate Mical

8/22/2018 2:54 PM

This week we celebrate the very oldest Travis child (and brother) of the family: Mical.
 
Mical started our clan of siblings and has certainly given our parents a run for their money! A God-loving, motorcycle riding, hardworking, nearly married, country man who can be found testing limits (and our mom’s sanity) or playing with the little kids, Mical is the brother you either wish you had or wish you didn’t have, depending on the day. He’s loud, funny, and the first to help out anyone from family to friends to strangers. 
Image may contain: one or more people and sunglasses
Mical is set to marry his longtime girlfriend Crystal and they plan to move up north off the grid with their dog, Xena. There he will continue to operate Travis Family Construction, the business he owns with our dad. Crystal is onboard for 6 little Micals in the future (in response, we are already praying for her...). 
Image may contain: 2 people, including Crystal Ducharme, people smiling, people standing 
Mical was the brother who was the first to start trouble and more often than not, the one in it. He’s always down for a good time and loves adventure, adrenaline, and danger.  While he can tease or prank us, he is also very protect of anyone else who tries to. 
 
While he doesn’t help with the animals or products, he does repair and build various structures around the farm. When we tragically lost our nursing barn, Mical was part of the crew who spent a weekend completely rebuilding it to surprise us. 
 Image may contain: 1 person
We are celebrating Mical’s day of birth (which to our very Portuguese grandparents is also the most precious birthday of the year) by offering you 15% off all products when you use code BESTBRO at checkout!*

Daisy, soon to be big sister to Dawson, is turning 2! She is the first grandchild for our dad David and mom Lillian, who she affectionately calls Grandpa and Grandma.

Love Letter to Leesa

8/9/2018 12:46 PM

Brother Kelub is the latest Travis to venture out on his own! He is the proud dad of Eleanore, affectionately nicknamed Ellie, and stepdad to Ava. 

Kelub and Leesa met the way most couples do nowadays: on social media - Instagram to be exact. Despite having born grown up in a small state (and even smaller towns) with many mutual friends, Kelub and Leesa had never crossed paths before!

Once they met in "real life", they were inseparable and began to spend their free time together. Kelub describes this as "falling madly in love" before beginning to officially date and then move in together. In a topsy-turvey order of events, shortly after, they were thrilled to find out they were expecting their first child together; quickly getting engaged with a beautiful ring Kelub selected. On August 4, 2018, they made it official and became Mr. and Mrs. Kelub Travis!
Image may contain: 3 people, people standing, wedding and outdoor
Despite their whirlwind romance, their future plans are pretty traditional: build a house on a small farm and raise their kids. Once the kids are old enough, they are excited to travel the world as a family!

When asked, Kelub said one of the things he loves most about Leesa is "even on our worst days, we always find time to laugh and realize that things will get better". 

Congratulations to Kelub and Leesa! If Kelub is anything like our dad, Leesa, Ava and Ellie will be so blessed to have him leading their family. 

Join us in celebrating the addition of another sister and granddaughter by sharing your well wishes to our beloved brother and his bride! Comment below or on any of our social media profiles!

Faith, Farm, Fish

7/19/2018 9:10 AM

Around the farm, you won't often hear a four-letter F word but today we're going to share a few of our favorites - don't worry, this post is still kid-friendly. 
 
First, is FAITH. While this isn't a four-letter word, it's the basis for all we do. Our parents have raised us to believe in a loving God and the power of prayer. As a result, we trust that even the small daily tasks we do have a higher purpose and we are always looking for ways to help others. We are grateful for all God has blessed us with and how He has used some really painful situations to bring us blessings (Romans 8:28). Our faith is a huge motivator for our family to be involved in foster care, as God calls us to care for the orphans. 
 
Next there is FARM. This one should be pretty obvious! We are a small, local, family owned and operated farm with a variety of animals all serving a unique purpose. There are many different kinds of farms; ours is primarily a dairy goat herd. Growing up on a farm has instilled many characteristics in us such as hard work, dedication, and loyalty - and also taught us some tough life lessons such as dealing with loss. We have a huge appreciation for all of God's creatures and are honored to be entrusted in caring for some of them. We take the care of our animals VERY seriously and consider them members of our family. Farming is not a hobby that you can do part time: it is a 24/7 365 grueling (but rewarding) commitment. 
 
Last is FISH. Our dad loves to fish! We have grown up spending summer days in Jamestown or on his boat fishing alongside him. Jaky and her family live along a small river and we have fun on hot Sundays taking the canoes and kayaks out to fish. The next generation of kids growing up are included as well and are all "water babies". After years of post-fish stink, Noah created a goat milk soap bar for cleaning up after a day of fishing that you can buy here
 
To celebrate our favorite F words (the only ones our mom wants to hear us use), enter code "FWORD" at checkout for a SURPRISE DISCOUNT on orders over $25 today only.*
 
Important: We understand that the farm life isn't for everyone and encourage anyone who is interested in learning more or considering starting their own to do their research and educate themselves. Animals are to be respected and treated well, whether they are pets or for working purposes. This is time consuming and expensive but it's the only way to be a responsible farmer. 
 
*Offer valid 12:01am-11:59pm 7/19/18 on online orders totaling $25.00USD before taxes or shipping. Offer has no cash value and is non-transferable and cannot be combined with other offers. Surprise discount is revealed at time of checkout.
