A Bit About Us

How It All Began 

During the pandemic of 2020, we found ourselves spending more time outdoors, specifically walking in our creek. I've always had an interest in geology and Garnett likes to hunt for artifacts so we were quite happy with our pandemic activity. We started finding really cool fossils and geodes and I kept thinking about how much kids would also enjoy doing this. One thing led to another and here we are with a 30' sluice I like to call Mr. Gemmy, a shop full of rocks, and a sandbox full of kids. I can honestly say that this is the best job I've had. I literally witness joy everyday.


Always Personal Service

We're just a small mom-and-pop business that enjoys what we do and we love sharing our little slice of heaven with you! For 15 years we ran Little Big Horse Trails from our farm and after closing in 2016 we realized how much we missed meeting people from all over the world so in 2021 we opened the Gem Mine and Rock Shop.
