Working Dogs

Visit the Johnson Family Homestead to witness an age-old system of family farming where everything is interconnected.  Eric Johnson has a strong commitment to preserving the amazing working relationship and bond that has existed between nature, farm, dog and human for centuries. He continues this tradition on his family farm. Watch the Johnson family’s Border Collies, trained to protect the livestock, at work.  Young visitors will be encouraged to participate and everyone who might like to own a farm dog of any breed will be given pointers.
