Located on the edge of Forest City, Iowa since 1921, Fernwood Farm boasts tall trees, rolling hills and a wonderful setting for raising kids and dogs. Bear Creek Kennel coined its name from the creek that runs nearby, the creek where I raced my horse and dug for clams as a youngster.
Our family has been raising quality, healthy, family hunting dogs for over 29 years. My husband and I grew up with Labrador Retrievers. Our line of English Springer Spaniels was introduced when we gave my father a female pup in 1984. That female was 'Sally', she was the loyal and loving 'founder' of our wonderful line of English Springer Spaniels, her strengths and characteristics have continued, with fifth and sixth generation pups available throughout the year. Pups from $500.
Our Labs are from strong hunting lines, our newest addition, a black male from Litchfield, MN is bound to be a great duck dog. Many of our pups have gone on to title in both AKC and UKC hunt tests and retriever trials. Our female is up and coming as a hunter in the field and water, she is a stunningly beautiful English Lab and will go on to produce gorgeous, highly intelligent pups beginning in 2014.
We pride ourselves in raising quality healthy farm-raised pups that families can enjoy in the field and in the home. It is our hope that each new owner will enjoy their new family addition as much as we do ours. References available upon request.
