ZiegenVine Homestead, LLC

Randy Ziegenhagen and Allison Lavine started ZiegenVine Homestead in mid-summer 2014.  Becoming an LLC in 2017 we are now ZiegenVine Homestead, LLC and are excited to bring you Yoga on the Homestead!  


A little about us.


We started  in 2010 with a few hens for fresh eggs just for us.  We talked about adding pigs to our 2.5 acres in Chemung County, NY.  After we found out town zoning wouldn't allow us to have any other types of farm animals we begain looking for a farm.  We found the land we are currently on in early 2014, closed the sale July 31st and moved to the farm that day.  We had to do a lot of clearing as the farm hadn't been used for farming in over 10 years.   It has a large barn with great bones- and we are hoping to restore it to its full glory!  


Spring of 2015 we expanded our flock of laying hens.  We also purchased some Cornish Cross Chicks and 3 pigs to raise for meat for us and family.  In 2016 we hatched some of our hens grow our flock a little more, bought more pigs and a boar for breeding.  We also added 3 adorable goats to the farm, Cora, Millie and Macey!  "The Girls",  as Allison often refers to them, are a Nubian Boer cross and are very friendly and love attention.    This spring each of our girls kidded - adding 6 adorable kids!

In June 2017, we welcomed Paco's Posse to the farm.   Paco's Posse, a herd of 8,  comes to us from Big Flats, NY.  Their previous owners had them in a residential neighborhood and were raising them as pets and 4-H projects.   After several years of court battles they decided to look for a place to take them.  We were happy to welcome them to the homestead.
