THE BEST OF TIMES FARM
720 Port Crescent Rd.
Port Austin, MI 48467
Block: Goat Times
Dave and Karen Price have a small herd of dairy and fiber goats on their seven-acre farm. They are
particularly proud of the beautiful yarn that can be made from the fleece of the Pygora goats that people
often take for sheep and the rare British Guernsey goats on site. Visitors are encouraged to make use
of the free little library at the road. You are welcome to take books, leave books or just take a look around.
Just keep reading, even on vacation.
Another item of interest is the labyrinth that you are free to walk. If you would like to stop and
relax, ponder, pray, meditate or a combination of all the above feel free to do so. Take a few minutes to
embrace the labyrinth walk experience. Brochures are available with further information.
The quilt block was designed, painted and installed by Dave Price. The Prices have been Thumb
residents for a short time, but both have ties that brought them back home to this area. The barn the
quilt is displayed on, was built around 1920. At some point, the property was a working dairy farm.
Twenty-five years ago, Robert and Margaret Berens replaced the original farm house with the current home.
