Davey Schacherl and his wife Hollie just moved out to Davey’s father’s cattle raising property with big plans. The land has been in Davey’s family for 7 generations and he and Hollie intend to make some big changes. His grandfather started raising cattle in the 70’s there, but for Hollie and Davey animal agriculture wasn’t an option.
After 2 years of chasing a vegan lifestyle, they realized they wanted to build a renewable and sustainable property that didn’t treat animals like a commodity. They were able to convince Davey’s dad, the current owner of the property to put the cattle sales on pause while they came up with a business plan.
They decided to take Davey’s skills and experience planning events and working at weddings and along with Hollie’s passion for permaculture and turn the ranch into a rustic wedding and getaway destination as well as a permaculture farm. The farm could provide food for their events as well as for market distribution.
They hope to transform their property early in 2018. From clearing the land, improving roadway access, creating a sanctuary to house the animals and marketing their property, they are building a plan for transformation.
