Honey loves her cousin/BFF/sorta sister, Maple, who has her own way of returning the affection! 

All in the family... 

Howdy! We're Randy and Helen, originally from Fort Worth, Texas, but perfectly content to have called Ashe County home for over 25 years.


Randy retired from teaching and coaching in high school (primarily football) and is now a happy beekeeper, etc., etc., etc. Helen hung up her special ed license many moons ago to be 'just' a mama (etc., etc., etc.) to their children, Matthew and Katie (and later, Jeffrey). Matthew and Katie somehow grew up, graduated from college, and got married, so Helen had to find other things to keep her busy. She managed. With the arrival of their first grandbaby, Clara, and her 'little' brother, James, the dust bunnies have had free reign for a little longer!


The Baldwin Zoo said good-bye in 2017 to Sami, who had the reputation of being the resident cranky cat for almost 19 years. The Zoo currently consists of Honey, a sweet, rowdy 'Staffy' who LOVES mountain romps, and Maple, boxer granddog, Honey's BFF and unofficial adoptee. On the outside, the two ponds on the premises are home to catfish, bass, blue gill, goldfish/koi, and who-knows-what else. And then there are the wild critters and honey bees!

Angels in the family...
