Our Story

We’ve loved every minute of our journey

In September of 2017 both of my grandparents had passed away.

I wanted to create something to help my grandmother's name live on. Linda's Garden was born and plants were started for the next sales season. During this time, I was pregnant and our little Addison decided that she would come early. During a two week hospital stay, our plants had died. Instead of letting this get us down, we started looking at livestock and helping critical breeds make it back ! With the demands of a premie newborn, I also had to give up my 9 year military career with the Tennessee Army National Guard. We found our fit that kept me home more and helped others with Buchanan's Barnyard.

Changing direction

We had a few clients with our Landscaping business, but we also had a nice little flock of chickens. When someone came to us with a homeless pig, we couldn't say no. We fell in love with her and whenever there was a need for another homeless piggy, we took them in. The demand increased and more piggies arrived. All needed love and attention and soon found homes after some training! We rescue while using the funds from our critical breeds of poultry to help fund our rescue. We are in the process of building a larger fenced in area, attaining our 501c3 status and doing our part to help #savethepiggies.

We recently received a call for two guinea pigs. While this is not our normal rescue we do not have the heart to say no. If you know of a farm animal/ livestock in need, please let us know.
