Bee Wings & Fuzzy Things
Bryan is a 22-year retired Navy veteran who now owns and operates his own trucking company. Tory has been working in education for 25 years, providing therapy for young children. Four years ago, they decided to pursue their shared love of animals by starting an alpaca farm. They researched alpacas and volunteered at a farm in Indiana to learn more. They then expanded the idea to include other animals in need of a safe haven.
Tory has a long history of rescuing dogs, often taking in those that others have rejected, including an 8-year-old German Shepherd with severe pancreatitis. They have also rescued a Redfoot Tortoise, Jackson Chameleon, a Polish Bunny, a Leopard Gecko, 3 dogs, and a foster dog.
In November 2022, they moved to their farm to expand their operations, and quickly acquired 16 hens, 2 turkeys, 3 sheep, 3 barn cats, and soon to be adding alpacas and equine to their herd. Tory is currently taking an online farming class through Purdue University and both Bryan and Tory will soon attend a beekeeping school to add bees and honey production to the farm.
We welcome visitors to our farm for educational opportunities!
Bee Wings & Fuzzy Things is located in the picturesque countryside of East Central Indiana, nestled on 5 acres of farmland in Deerfield. Conveniently situated just two miles east of the State Road 28/27 intersection, our farm is surrounded by hundreds of acres of lush fields. Our property comprises of approximately 3 acres of pasture and we are in the process of expanding our fenced-in areas to provide separate homes for animals. We will be adding shelters and water sources shortly after the fences are in place. Our farm also features a large garden and several dedicated areas for planting fruit trees, bushes, and wildflowers, to provide nourishment for our winged friends.
