The Kennedy Burren

The Kennedy Burren is a small, family farm located in Port Matilda, Pennsylvania, just minutes from State College.  We grow a variety of fruits and vegetables in the summer, as well as raise Australian Shepherds.

During a visit to Ireland, we discovered a region called "The Burren" in County Clare.  The landscape is literally made from rock--buildings, walls, roads--and the fields are full of rocks.  When we moved to Pennsylvania, imagine our surprise when we discovered land that is all rock.  Pick any point, get out your pick-axe, and you will hit rock within seconds.  Hence, "The Kennedy Burren" was born.

We raise and sell Australian Shepherds as companions, agility dogs, and herding dogs.  Our dogs will not win ribbons in a show ring, but they will win your heart.  We are looking for owners who have previously owned an Aussie (or any kind of herding dog), or who own land, or who are looking for a great adventure.  Look around our site, and feel free to contact us with any questions.
