Welcome to the Chalmers Zen Farm
Cory and Kathryn Chalmers first knew they wanted to have property, animals, vegetable gardens, and a weekend retreat after first visiting Peltzer Farms in Temecula Ca in the spring of 2011. Cory surprised Kathryn with the trip for her birthday, giving her the Nikon professional camera she had been coveting for so long,. Kathryn was ecstatic about her wonderful birthday present and the surprise weekend get-away. It was also that weekend on Peltzer Farms, that Cory proposed to Kathryn, declaring his undying love for her, asking if she would be his wife, growing old and spending the rest of her life with him. Kathryn was shocked. The wonderful birthday present and the farmhouse they were staying in on Peltzer Farms was already amazing and nothing could have made the weekend more perfect, except for the sudden and un-expected proposal from Cory. Kathryn said "YES" while Cory slipped a beautiful 3 carat sapphire and diamond ring on her finger...and so the fairy tale continued. It was on that weekend, walking around the farm while sipping on local wine that they have the fondest memories. They spent their weekend petting the pygmy goats, watching the chickens roam freely, looking at the vegetable garden that had been freshly planted, and walking amongst the old John Deere tractors parked on the side of the farm that had been left over from a bygone era. From this experience, and Kathryn's childhood of growing up around horses, goats, sheep, chickens, rabbits, dogs, and cats that they set out on a search for their very own Peltzer Farm. Just a few short months later, Cory and Kathryn moved to a piece of property nestled against the San Gabriel Foothills in Southern California. Now they have their own farm fresh eggs from their 22 hens, enjoy watching the sunsets in the back yard as their 3 goats, Mama and her kid Frankie, who are Nigerian Dwarfs, and Lil Lou, a micro Pygmy, who is only 18 inches tall at the withers (shoulder) dance and jump around at Cory and Kathryn legs. The hens roam freely during the warm days, and are closed in a custom built hen house at night. Holly, the German Shepherd rescue roams freely amongst all the animals, watching over them closely as she considers them all her very own "babies" to take care of. All the while, their pure breed Scottish Fold cats play on the hardwood floors of their home providing even more happiness when Cory and Kathryn are not outdoors.
