Welcome to Juggling Daisies!

Life is fast paced and unpredictable leaving each of us to juggle so many different things. Because of that, you need a place to turn off all of the extra noise and simply emerse yourself in some joyful serenity. Welcome to our hobby farm.

Growing Smiles Daily

Everyone smiles and awws over our adorable animals on Instagram and Facebook, therefore this blog is an extension of that. Bringing our fluffy farm family personalities to life where everyone is forever pets never food. Keeping our content authentic, positive, and wholesome makes it perfect for all ages to fall in love with our farm friends as well as bond over them. We find life whimsical and fun and love sharing the positivity with you.

Animal Tales

I am writing the various adventures as I see them unfold between our unique animals. Reading them, let your imagination roll, it’s the illustrations that bring the stories to life. My goal is for them to be published as children’s picture books one day. Who knows, maybe even a television show.

Our Daily Juggle

In addition to running the farm, my husband Kevin and I work well as a team living an adventurous life as entrepreneurs. Selling agricultural ingredients into the pet food market allows us to create this safe haven for our animal friends. We own a manufacturing plant which dries down locally grown agricultural providing food for your pets. Furthermore, we do commercial rehabs as a way to give back to our community. Focusing on tired buildings in our area, we breath life back into them. Combining my background in interior design and Kevin’s construction skill set we love reinventing buildings stories.

Personal Lives

Balancing hard work, bringing our dreams to fruition, and being examples of love to our two teenage boys definitely keeps us on our toes . In our spare time we travel and encourage each other to lead a more healthy life. We are amazed and touched by the internal beauty of people we meet along the way. The number one question we are asked is how do we get it all done. Well, that question is better answered on our second blog https://behindthedaisies.com/

Take some time, relax, and enjoy our happy farm. Comment on the posts you like. Let me know which animal personalities you enjoy the most. Don’t leave without dropping a pin in the city you live in! Let’s bring our world wide community just a little closer together right here.

Thank you for your time…we really appreciate you being here.

        Hello Jane –
        Are you local, in West Bend? From time to time we have bigger projects that I certainly could use some helping hands.

    Not sure how I stumbled upon your story, but we are living a parallel life of adventure and just now embarking on the farm startup and restoring a historic estate! I have so many questions on both if you don’t mind mentoring someone new at this : ) My website is just getting started, links from site to farm blog and the B&B link goes to the estate we are working on.

      Hello Kay!
      It is SO helpful that you added your Instagram handle! I don’t really know “your” names often so this makes it much easier. So glad you found us while you are working through whatever is keeping you down a little. Many many MANY people come to our sites to soak up the peace and serenity that we offer through the animals antics and love. I appreciate you commenting on the ease of my blog! I am not a techy person so I have done the majority of this myself. Now I did get some extra help with adding the store features as well as booking…
      I hope to write a series of children’s books under animal tales in hopes of being published one day! Please read them and leave comments. I hope I hear more from you Kay and good health to you…

    This is the best hobby farm ever! I already booked by tour for July and I’m counting down the days to my visit. Amy always keeps it real and I like that. This is the real world and real world stuff happens every day. Amy lives the life I wish I had. 🙂

      Awww…I DO keep it real even though not everyone agrees with what happens or my choices. That’s alright! I want to develop a community built out of animal love and acceptance. Through the animals, people that may not agree on other topics, can simply sigh and chill out together. So glad you are catching that vibe. Also – I totally am living a fairytale life – that is why I share. This many blessings can’t be kept to oneself. Thanks for being here and your support.

      Thanks Michelle!!! I have cleaned this blog up and adding to my other one so just like Instagram they have two different purposes, yet compliment each other. Kevin and I have a solid and fun relationship and live life to it’s fullest – we love to share and we couldn’t be happier to take you all along with us on our crazy journey through life…Thanks for leaving a comment!

    Dear Amy, your furry friends and you have been such a wonderful discovery! My Dad is being laid to rest today in Oklahoma and I am in Germany, so I will only be able to attend via live stream. To take my thoughts off things I am baking doggie cookies. Since I don’t have your cookie mix, I am trying to wing it with mashed potatoes, blueberries, apples and oat meal for a dry ingredient. Lucy my pup loves them – so thanks for the inspiration and sending out so much love into the world. All the best to you and your family!

      Hello Olivia –
      I am so very sorry that you were not able to attend your father being laid to rest. Getting your mind off of things was a wonderful way to not sink into sadness and how wonderful that our cookie Fridays inspired you to mix up your own batch. Lucy must be over the moon!!! Thank you for being here and for your commentary. It is so very appreciated. Be well…

    Hi Amy! I love what you and Kevin do for these beautiful, precious animals. I would have liked to be you when I was younger! Life doesn’t always take us where we wanted to go. I am looking for your banana nut bread recipe. Please! Much Love!
