Where it all Began!
Hello my name is Paige Fife, I married my wonderful husband Tony Fife in August 2011 and thats where our adventures started. We both love animals and knew we wanted them to be a huge part of our life. As a little girl I always wanted a Bernese Mountain dog, so after only a few months of being married we started our search for a Bernese. We found him, his name is Baloo! And man do we love him, he is everything we could ever want in a dog. He is beautiful, extremely loyal, loves everyone and enjoys to go on trail rides. Everywhere we go we get compliments about him and why wouldn't we, he is so cute :)
But our travels did not stop there. I grew up competing with horses in cow horse competitions. My love of horses only grew. When Tony and I got married I started teaching horse riding lessons, improving my skills in training, and selling horses.
As time went on I became a certified dog groomer and Tony was on his way to become an Ag teacher. I fell in love with poodles. Being a dog groomer thats the dog to let your creativity and skills improve. With a few bumps on the way we found the perfect poodle for our home. Raven is her name and man she is full of fun, just what we needed. Then of course we had the bright idea to breed the two dogs together making the Bernerdoodle! Taking the best of these two breeds making a fantastic mix!
Then before we knew it Tony was accepting a job in Troy Idaho. So here we are in our 700ft log cabin with 32 rolling acres to roam with two exceptional little boys keeping me on my toes.
Three dogs that make our home complete with horses, goats, pigs, chickens, and our dreams to keep our home fun and interesting. As we homestead and find new ways to make our place ours in our hopes that we can raise our kids to love and respect animals and the nature around us. Having them create their imaginations with sticks and mud knowing what hard work is and where your food really comes from. Thats what we are about here on Fife&Wife Ranch creating a balance with our creatures and the land in which we stewart.
My main focus is breeding Bernedoodles. Are life seems to evolve around them. Everything we do is to make happy health puppies. We raise our own pigs to feed our dogs (raw diet is really important). Along with milking two goats twice a day and mixing it in with their food. I hope to get more chickens to also mix eggs in with their food along with honey. Those will be our next projects chickens, and honey bees.
May our family keep GROWING
