A Word From Our Founder:
In the summer of 2000, my daughter begged me to buy a pup. I told her that I would only say yes if we bought a Golden Retriever. I had seen these dogs and their love for all. I had seen their patience and tolerance with people young and old. I had read "Watchers" by Dean Koontz three times and had fallen in love with one of its animal protagonists, an exceptionally intelligent Golden Retriever named "Einstein." We purchased our first Golden Retriever, Cassie, in October 2000.
After doing extensive research, we decided to breed Cassie when she was two years old. We have Dr. Richard Orzeck and his wife Theresa to thank for their advice and emergency assistance involving labor issues. He acquainted us with genetic problems inherent to Goldens and taught us how to best screen our dogs to avoid some of the health issues common to the breed.
We enclosed two-and-a-half acres around our home and pond with fencing shortly after Cassie was successfully bred. Since I worked out of our home, I was able to supervise, train and play with our expanding group slowly over the next few years. Hence, Famn Damily Farm was born.

Why Famn Damily Farm?
At Famn Damily Farm, our main focus is instilling a calm temperament. Our dogs get along wonderfully with children and kitties. We focus on the four major health clearances for eyes, heart, hips and elbows. We breed dogs that have no hot spots and do not need to have their anal glands drained. While our pups may be busy (because they are pups), we receive many phone calls, emails, cards and letters telling us how calm they are.
When you come to see a pup, you will not find their parents in a cage. All of our dogs are members of our family. While we do have a large pen, our dogs are seldom in it. In fact, mom and dad will insist on meeting you. One of the Goldens' greatest goals in life is making as many human friends as they possibly can. The majority of our clientele comes from referrals.

My name is Bella. I was born on February 13, 2009 at Famn Damily Farm. Cahlua is my dad and Carly is my mom. I was the runt of the litter and my Grandma Mel nicknamed me 'Tiny.' She carried me around in her sweatshirt pocket a lot because I needed some extra human protection.
My brothers and sisters were a lot bigger and stronger than I was and life in the blue pool was a little rough for me! My forever-mom, Miss Barbara, adopted me on April 10, 2009. Barbara and I live five miles away from the farm and I go back to visit my family often. Melodie and Barbara are step-sisters, too.
