Stone Cottage Farm / Hoof Prints on our Hearts Block

2301 O'Brien Rd.
Mayville, MI 48744
Block: Hoof Prints on our Hearts


The barn is located on O'Brien Rd, between Leix and Washburn Rd (2301 O'Brien Rd).
David and Christina Beecher are the third owners of their farm. The field stone house and big red barn
were built in the late 1930s by the original owners. The Beechers had a new steel roof installed on the
barn their first year on the farm in 2010, and converted the interior to house their herd of Nubian and
Alpine dairy goats.
Custom designed by David and Christina, the block features a goat hoof print inside a heart, and one
hoof print in each of the four corners. The couple raises Purebred Nubian, American Alpine, and French
Alpine dairy goats, as well as chickens (for eggs and meat), and Bourbon Red turkeys on their 15 acre
farm, which also features a large annual vegetable garden, and extensive herb and flower beds. The
Beechers put the beautiful milk from their goats to use making soap, cheese, cajetta (goat milk caramel),
ice cream, and yogurt. 

The couple designed the quilt block and it's title to reflect their approach to farming, and the love
they have for their herd and farm.
Stone Cottage Farm goat milk soap is available for sale through the farm directly, at The Beauty Stop
in downtown Marlette, or through their farm Facebook page. Goat kids are available each Spring,
and limited quantities of fresh brown eggs are available year-round at the farm. Herd shares are
also available Spring through Fall.
