About Us

As 4-H, high-school sweethearts, in 2010 we tied the knot and purchased our first property. In 2018 we bought our second property with a farmhouse built in 1900 with plans to remodel. In 2020, we installed a driveway, connecting both properties. In 2021, we felt led to offer RV camping and also purchased 3 pygmy goats from California and 1 from Ohio. In 2022, the Lord unexpectedly led us to purchase our third property. Also connected to our other properties, it features a remodeled farmhouse built in 1900, which we offer for overnight stays.Our combined 8 acres is peaceful and serene with birds and natural wildlife and very park like (hence the name, Parkside Farm). In the day you can watch clouds roll by, see amazing sunsets and star gaze at night. We are 15 minutes from downtown Grand Rapids, GR International Airport, restaurants and shopping venues. We offer family friendly experiences including a barn theater, photography, goat and nature experiences and educational classes. Our prayer is for the Lord to use what He's given us to be a place of restoration and blessing for others.

Registered Pygmy Goats

Growing up in 4-H and on family farms, we were very familiar with animals and agriculture. After 11 years of marriage, we purchased a momma pygmy goat (Iris) and her twin babies (JJ) and (Isabelle, Belle for short) from California. They began there long journey by van transport and arrived to their new home with us in October 2021. In January 2021, we picked up our herd buckling, Zorro from Ohio with plans for kidding dates in September 2021 and January 2023. We cannot wait to welcome our first babies born at Parkside Farm.Parkside Farm is the only registered pygmy goat breeder in West Michigan with the National Pygmy Goat Association. As proud members of the NPGA, we desire to uphold the breed and ethical standards required of membership and look forward to educating family's about pygmy goat husbandry, health and care. We are registered with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Michigan Office official Goat Scrapie ID program, Flock ID# MIK2048/Premise ID# 00QX7VA. We offer goat experiences throughout the summer. All goat experiences will be supervised by Parkside Farm and all participants are required to sign a waiver to participate.

Reviews & Recommendations

We were in site #1 which has a loose asphalt pad and was pretty flat. Between site #1 and #2, there is a community fire ring which has a large diameter that we used. And for a small additional fee, you can use their firewood, rather than bring your own. I have a 20 ft hybrid travel trailer and had no problems getting it backed into our spot, and I would agree it does have a nice "Park like feel". The hosts were very friendly and they have some cool unique options (like a movie theater) that you can rent too. Overall I would say that it was a great experience. - Michael O., RV Camper

Parkside Farm hosted our annual volunteer appreciation dinner in 2021 and we had a blast! We were able to utilize the bonfire area, play with the goats, bring in our own food and cook kabobs for our guests. The barn provided ample seating and we used the movie screen to share and watch organization updates with our guests. If you are in need of a spot to host your team or organization reach out to Parkside Farm. - Deb VanderBand, Executive Director of Equine Assisted Development

Pleasant. Very pretty land and nice big campfire pit. They were very nice and accommodating. Recommend. - Pashion O., RV Camper

I was relieved to find that Parkside Farm would host me three-year-old's birthday party. I was able to bring in my own food and piñata in their barn theater room. It was the perfect place to escape the January weather. They provided popcorn and a movie, we got to see the goats, too! The kids had a blast. - Lisa, Busy Mom of 3

I have never met couple of strangers that were more welcoming and understanding than these owners!!! Due to traffic delays we were unable to arrive until nearly midnight and not only were they out at our campsite to greet us but they were more than willing to assist us with setting up our camper and providing us with information about the campsite. When my girlfriend needed to use their home Internet to complete a college assignment they were more than understanding and willing to allow her to even though it was clearly not some thing offered normally. Due to a family issue we had to cut our stay short two days and due to rain we were unable to use the firewood that we had purchased through them. I was planning to consider the money spent a loss but these owners not only checked to see if I would like a refund but promptly refunded me the two night stay, two days worth of electricity and the four days worth I’ll firewood that I had purchased. These people were amazing and I highly recommend staying here if you are looking for lodging in the area. - Blake K., RV Camper
