Nestled just outside the periphery of the City of Independence, the Bates Family Farm is a Kentucky home to Eric, Erin, Garrison, Greylen, and Lakota Bates and all their animals.  Established in 2009, the farm features Paso Fino horses, the smoothest riding horse in the world.   This farm and these animals are a gift from God and we cherish every moment we have here.  We love to share stories during the summer and fall around the fire pit.
