Bichons are adorable, white little bundles of fluff. They have energy to play, but love to snuggle up and cuddle with their hoomans. Their fur (technically hair) is hypoallergenic and they do not shed, but do require regular grooming. https://ckcusa.com/breeds/bichon-frise/
Our Bichons are raised on 68 acres with children, livestock, cats and other dogs of all sizes. They are loved like the family members they are. Our Bichons are CKC registered and have been DNA tested by Embark. Both Sam and Gracie are clear of over 170 genetic diseases and have also been cleared as carriers. Happy, healthy dogs live here on Stone Meadow Farm.
Improving the Bichon Frise breed is what quality breeding is all about and what we strive for at Stone Meadow Farm. Each puppy is micro-chipped, examined by our veterinarian, dewormed, and receives age appropriate vaccinations before it leaves us to go to its new family.
Once upon a time, there was a couple named Shawn and Malia. Shawn was a rough, tough, stern retired USMC Master Sergeant. Malia was a former stay-at-home mom turned Registered Nurse turned Bichon Frise and all things canine enthusiast.
Shawn and Malia lived in the San Francisco Bay area for several years while MSgt. was still in the Marine Corps. After he retired from military service, they moved to the Western Slope of Colorado to be closer to family as both of them are from Northeastern Utah. The lovely little town of Fruita, Colorado welcomed them with open arms and life was great.
However, Shawn and Malia yearned for wide open spaces and room to run. Spending time with extended family became even more important and so the decision was made to move back to their hometown.
Ten acres with the most spectacular view of Split Mountain and the Green River was found as an answer to their dreams and prayers. Shawn and Malia loaded up their kids, Bichons, cats and other assorted fur babies and moved back to Utah. In addition to having beautiful views, the new kingdom came with rolling meadows full of stones, cobble rocks of all sizes and even a few fossils here and there as this area was once an ancient river bed with the Dinosaur National Monument and Quarry a stone's throw away (pun intended).
Ever so slowly, the population of Stone Meadow Farm has grown to include more fur babies, two fuzzy Highland cows named Claire and Hamish, a couple of pigs, chickens, and an intimidating looking (all gobble, but no bite) turkey with a master plan of eventually adding more highland cows and perhaps an alpaca or two. And oh yes, we mustn't forget the native wildlife that also claim the Farm as home: Mule Deer, Turkeys, Coyotes, Ringneck Pheasants and a majestic Owl. Sandhill Cranes and Canadian Geese are frequent visitors as well as an occasional Bald Eagle sighting. A massive herd of Elk lives across the river and can be heard bugling in the wee morning hours in late summer and fall.
We are living our best life here at Stone Meadow Farm!
