Wildroot Cove Goat Yoga: Tara Jenkins & Mazie Gengler

From Tara (owner of Wildroot Cove): 

My heart behind WRC is to use what God has given us abundantly. As a wife and mom, it is rewarding to spend our evenings as a family out enjoying the animals. All three of us do our part in making sure the animals are taken care of.

When I think about where Wildroot Cove started, I think back to this moment of Kenley and I sitting on the couch drawing pictures of us snuggling on January 1, 2017. Little did we know, in a short six months from that moment, our entire world would shift.

Tyson and I had browsed for properties for over a year and nothing on the market matched our criteria – we wanted at least six acres and we had a 2-mile radius mapped out in Nowthen, Minnesota. However, with our commutes to work, it still would not be practical. Tyson joked one day, “It might work out if you worked in Coon Rapids.” A few days later, a job position in Coon Rapids was posted. This was the first step God had given us to get to where we are today. I claim the entire timeline of our journey was directed and appointed from God, others might say coincidental. Call it what you want, there were six months of too-good-to-be-true opportunities laid out in front of us to get to where we are today. If you would like to know more of this story, we might need to get coffee.
