Raptor Ridge Homestead Tours
Our story starts a few years ago when we decided to move from Northern Alberta to the Badlands of Drumheller. I had always dreamed of farming in some way and we wanted to give our teenage children a different life perspective before they left the nest.
The result is small homestead, with chickens, goats a cow and in the spring, ducks. Our philosophy is "you are what you eat". We love our animals and only feed them organic feed and fresh organic herbs from our own greenhouse. Our goal was to limit our global footprint, and learn healthier ways to live.
Learn about homestead life
Visit our homestead and learn about homestead life, meet the animals, learn where eggs come from, how bees make honey, home composting, blacksmithing and a self guided hike through our badlands.
