We are Lonnie & Rose Gingerich and blessed with 3 adult children and 4 grandchildren. Our home is on a small farm of 26 acres in the fertile farming country of East Central Illinois. Golden Retrievers were always a special part of our family as our three children were growing up and you could usually find at least one roaming about on the farm. In addition to our dogs we also have a few outdoor cats
as well as several beef cows. In the past we have had chickens, rabbits and a pony.
Our unplanned journey as Golden Retriever breeders began in 2012 when our 2nd daughter who was 17 at the time asked for a male & female puppy so she could raise Golden puppies. After considerable persistence she finally convinced us and in December of 2013 our first litter of puppies arrived, but by then our daughter was away in school and the task of taking care of them fell on the two of us. In the process we have discovered a greater love for these amazing dogs and so enjoy seeing our puppies become such a special addition to families all over the US.
We are so grateful for all the wonderful homes these puppies now live in.
This makes all the work quite worthwhile!
