We had a litter of Old-Time Farm Collies - born on November 26. Five males and four females.
ALL PUPPIES HAVE BEEN RESERVED, but if you request to be placed on our mailing list, we will keep you updated on any future litters should we have them. No new breedings are planned before Spring, 2024.
Follow along as they grow!
ABOUT FARM COLLIES:
This landrace breed goes back to the older genetics of the collie and is bred for both work and family life. They are extremely smart, easy to train, loyal to their family, and make excellent farm & family dogs that will help work stock one minute and snuggle up with you the next. They herd, guard, hunt, and also love children. We value these qualities on our working beef and lamb farm in southern Minnesota and have carefully selected farm collie bloodlines that best fit our needs for work and companionship. Our farm collie goes everywhere we go on the farm, and helps move cattle/sheep and goats daily during the summer months in our rotational grazing system. Brandy (dam) is from working english shepherd lines out of northwestern South Dakota and Sandstone (sire) is a scotch collie from a ranch in Oklahoma. These puppies will make lovely homestead and farm companions and are gentle with our lambs, kids, calves, chicks, bunnies, and children.
We appreciate that they are athletic & highly intelligent/intuitive dogs but also much calmer than a Border Collie or Aussie.
Storybook Farm puppies leave with their first puppy vaccine, vet exam, dewormed, and with a small bag of puppy food to give them a great start in their new homes. They are loved daily (we have 5 children), socialized to a variety of situations and people (we do nursing home visits), and exposed to a wide variety of livestock found here on our farm. We also start leash training the last few weeks they live with us.

FARM COLLIE HISTORY IN ART:
Below are a few pieces of art from the late 1800s-early 1900s capturing collies from the past. We see many of these same expressions and traits in our farm collie.
