Bouchér Family Farm was founded in June 2007 after we moved from Arvada, Co. to Longmont, Co.; in October of 2012 we came to our current location in Firestone, Co.
We raise a diverse variety of animals, including; Miniature Cattle, Emus, Angora Goats, Alpacas, Chickens, Peafowl, Guineas, Muscovy ducks, Baby-Doll Sheep, Giant Schnauzers and Sphynx cats.
Products include; Wool, Mohair, Alpaca Fiber, Fresh Eggs, Hatching Eggs, Ducklings, Lambs, Kids, Calves, Crias, and, of course, our beloved Giant Schnauzer puppies and Sphynx kittens.
Our mission is to share the love and passion for all the species we care for and are striving to preserve here, and the knowledge we have gained through many years of experience, with the hope of inspiring future generations to continue on our legacy.
Along with our passion for the unique species we raise here, we have an overarching passion for sharing our lives with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, especially those who have high behavioral needs. We take pride in leading by example, being liaisons for compassion, patience, and kindness in both the developmentally disabled community and the animal kingdom.
Bouchér Family Farm knows, from our own experiences in sharing our lives with animals and our experience in witnessing humans begin to heal from trauma, navigate social anxiety, and gain confidence, that the world isn't always kind or fair. We began by offering residential services and became a host home for adults in our community that needed support navigating residential settings.
We learned quickly how impactful our animals can be for these individuals; however, the bigger lesson was what these individuals have to offer the animals. The impact on the animals is immeasurable; virtually every day we witness interactions our minds and hearts would never have imagined were possible.
That is why, in 2020, Bouchér Family Farm partnered with Soul Dogs, Inc to provide supported employment opportunities to adults with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities. This has allowed these individuals a chance to develop and maintain work, social and communication skills in a safe and understanding environment. For many it provides a stepping stone to more significant achievements, such as community employment in the food and animal care industries.
We feel both humbled and blessed to be able to share our biggest passions with this community, as well as the public.
