Our History

Life on The Defender Farm is a lifelong dream come true. As teenagers, we shared a dream to start our own farm. Today, we’re overcome with gratitude each morning that our dream is a reality. With every day posing a different challenge – be it the weather, the animals or the shifting seasons – we’re always on our toes, learning and adapting and growing with the farm.

From early on, Dobermans struck us as the embodiment of a family protector, and we knew we needed them in our life. These dogs are the reason we began The Defender Farm – to provide our community with strong, healthy, protective dogs that would go on to defend our neighbors and beyond. We’re immensely proud of the work we do, carrying on the legacy of a breed renowned for its loyalty and intelligence.

Over the years, our farm practices have developed to include more than our reputable dog breeding program. We’re proud to offer farm-fresh products and locally-raised proteins for our customers in neighboring cities. With a focus on how meat is raised and the importance of knowing where your food comes from, our mission at The Defender Farm stands strong.

Scheduled visitors are always welcome here for a scheduled tour, a practice that is rarely offered by other family farms. We believe that allowing individuals and groups the opportunity to be around livestock and meet the animals is priceless. Learning where your food comes from is more important today than ever before, which is why we’re proud to offer scheduled tours of our farm.
