Thanks For Joining Us Here At BackyardFarmLife!


Hi there!

My name is Blake Dan, the proud founder and content creator of BackyardFarmLife.

Growing up on a farm in New Zealand started my passion for farming, with countless chickens, goats, a few horses, and a handful of other backyard animals.

I realized when I moved away from home how much I missed having a self-sustaining, thriving, and lively backyard farm.

Though, this passion never faltered. Now, I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from my farming origins and bought it with me, where me and my partner Tali constantly are growing our backyard farm.

Our Mission

At BackyardFarmLife we will share with you our hands-on experience raising a thriving backyard farm. Through our challenges and countless cherished memories, our mission is to share with you genuine advice and tips on how to keep your backyard animals happy, healthy, and full of life.
