Lauren & Dan Klingbiel
Lauren, a free lance journalist, was the ox drover on Dunroven Farm. After attending Tillers International Oxen Basics Classes, in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Lauren trained her oxen to log, pull their 14 foot freight wagon, and the stone boat. You can see all of the wooden ox yokes the team outgrew in the oxen barn. The Klingbiels have since sold their oxen teams. Lauren now has over 40 laying hens whose eggs she delivers to town customers. The Klingbiels also grow seasonal garden produce.

Surrounded by forest and beach on Malcolm Island, the ten-acre farm invites visitors to sample history and the beauty of the area.

We grow many other vegetables in the garden each year.
