Ljubomir Farms represents the fulfillment of a dream by our patriarch, Ljubivoje Kljajić who passed away before he could see it come true.

Ljubomir means love & peace in Serbian.

Ljubivoje, my father-in-law,  came to America in 1959, a refugee and defector from the communist regime of Tito’s Yugoslavia. From the minute he first breathed the air of a free man, he dreamt of having a few acres of land, some livestock and a simple life of a farmer who owned his own property. He worked for many years, putting his boys Alex, Rick and Scott through college, sacrificing so they could grow up with a better life than he ever had.

My husband, Scott & I have picked up where he left off and now have a working “hobby farm” that will eventually be moved to our larger acreage in Marysville, Montana in a few years when Scott leaves the US Army.

Currently, we have 2 horses, a donkey, 6 ducks, 10 chickens and a small greenhouse on 10 acres in Spring Branch, Texas. Eventually we will expand to include goats, milk and beef cows and whatever else we might end up having an interest in.

This blog is a journal about my trials & triumphs in farming. I do not profess to be a subject matter expert in the areas of farming. What I plan to do is offer a fun look at a family learning how to unplug & enjoy life on the farm.
