Welcome to Plum Bush Farm
Hi, we are Gabriel and Jenny Burkey. Our little farmstead is located near Beaver Crossing, NE, right next to the old Oregon Trail. We have six children, and enjoy learning with them about God’s creation through the animals, garden, and orchard that we maintain on our few acres.
The main purpose of this website is to share information about our Nigerian Dwarf Goats. In addition to the goats, we have chickens, the occasional pig or two, barnyard cats and Daisy, our faithful Blue Heeler.
We’re not experts in everything garden, orchard, or animal related, but we do our best to learn all we can about the animals, plants, trees, and vines that we have, and be responsible stewards of the blessings God has given us.
Why Plum Bush Farm?
We searched available names, did a lot of thinking, tried a lot of names on for size, and eventually decided on Plum Bush Farm.
Plum bushes are abundant in our part of the world, and are scattered around the border of our property. They are one of the first harbingers of Spring in the area, and our children have often played house under their white fragrant blossoms. In a good fruit year, we have already picked baskets and buckets of the tart little fruit to steam for jelly.
Feel free to look around our site! Contact us if you have any questions about anything or if you’re interested in upcoming kids for sale. We would love to connect with you! Thanks for coming by, we appreciate it.
