Updated on May 3, 2020

I meet with business owners both locally and internationally and share what I learn to help readers generate more income.

Imagine pulling up to a farm gate and seeing 5784 Hwy 84. Now imagine you pull up and see a sign saying Green Meadows Farm. Which would you rather visit? Which would you rather own?

If you're looking for a name for your farm or your ranch, I've got some ideas and names for you to consider. I'll suggest some names in this article, but I will also show you how to come up with a name unique to your farm. Let's get started finding a name for your farm, ranch or homestead.

Farm Names With Trees
Farm Names With Trees

Trees and Wild Plant Names for Farms

Names of trees have always been a popular inclusion for farm names. If you have a coppice on your homestead and it forms part of the character of your place, why not include it in the name? Here are a few examples:

  • Birch Wood Farm
  • Magnolia Ranch
  • Whispering Pines
  • Cedar Tree Hollow
  • Hickory Homestead
  • Elm Tree Farm
  • Oakdale Ranch
  • Willow Way
  • Sycamore Rise
  • Old Maple Way
  • The Cherry Orchard

This doesn't only have to be about the trees growing near your place, you could name it after an abundant wild plant you have growing.

  • Bracken Hill
  • Cattail Hollow
  • Daisy Dale
  • Ivy Ridge
  • Nettle Bank Farm
  • Bramble Hedge Homestead
  • Blueberry Hill
  • Thistle Bank
  • Gorse Bush Farm

Local Wild Animals

It's likely your farm or ranch will have some livestock. If the name for your farm doesn't need to represent what you raise or grow, consider using the name of an animal that is native to the region. It could be one that you currently see or even one that was there in the past. Here are a few examples:

  • Fox Run
  • Badger Hill Farm
  • Wild Turkey Ranch
  • Fox Hollow
  • Coyote Crossing
  • Mustang Ranch
  • Buffalo Pass Farm
  • Dingo Point
  • Grizzly Way
  • Black Bear Farm
  • Crow's Rest
  • Beavers Point
  • Elk Pass Canyon

River, Lake, or Stream Names

If your land has a lake or it borders a stream or river, consider incorporating that into your farm's new name. Even if it no longer has water running in it, you can still use this to great effect. Here are a few examples:

  • Dry Creek Ranch
  • Lake View Farm
  • Dry Gulch
  • Hidden Cove Ranch
  • Sunny Banks Ranch
  • Trout Brook Farm
  • Hidden Spring Hideaway
  • Spring Mount
  • Dinky Creek
  • Brookside
  • Brook Haven
  • Broken Brook
  • Crooked Creek
  • Lost Cove Homestead
  • Riverlands

Humorous Farm Names

I personally love to see a bit of levity when it comes to farming. If you have a small farm or homestead you will know a sense of humor is crucial to keeping your sanity. Tell me I am not the only one who has chased chickens or guinea fowl around a coop trying to get them to go in at night. Like a scene from a Keystone Cops film, it was one of those moments that was aggravating but knew I'd laugh about later.

With that in mind, here are a few names for your homestead that are funny.

  • Back Achers Farm (Back Acres Farm)
  • Done Roamin
  • Almosta Ranch
  • El Ranch Costa Plente
  • Wits End Farm
  • Dairy Air (heir)
  • Blazing Pitchforks
  • Pushin Up Daisies

A humorous name can be one that incorporates your own name, place or a play on words.

How to Use the Farm Name Generator

Use the table above to help you generate a name. Starting in the left column choose a word. For this example let's use the word, stony.

In the middle column choose one or more words, let's use, creek.

From the final column let's use the word, view.

stony + creek + view

Congratulations, you've named your farm.

This is just an idea of how you can select words and join them together to form something that is personal to your farm. You also don't have to use all of the columns. How about Tumbleweed Hill Farm? You're only limited by your own imagination. Try a few combinations until you think, 'that's a good one.' Jot it down, and make another until you get a good list.

When you have several, don't decide immediately. It's best to leave it for a time and look at it with fresh eyes to see if you still love it.

Horse Farm Names
Horse Farm Names | Source

Horse Farm Names

If your farm or ranch is predominately related to the raising of horses or associated with horses, a name reflecting that is a good idea. Your place doesn't even have to be a farm; you could be looking for horse business names for a riding stable or perhaps you are a supplier of riding paraphernalia.

  • The Golden Horse Ranch
  • Rocking Horse Farm
  • Freckled Fanny Farm
  • New Heights
  • Stable View
  • Broken Spur
  • Dreamweaver
  • White Horse Ranch
  • Flying Hooves
  • Pegasus Ranch
  • Hands High Ranch

How to Register a Farm Name

To begin with, you'll need to see if the name you're considering is already in use in your state. If you're in the USA you can check online for the forms. This is handled by your state. To find the correct department, contact the secretary of (insert your state's name) followed by business forms or corporation names.

If you're in a different country, search for registering a business and you should be able to file online.

This will also tell you the costs, and the time frame for renewal.

Although you may not think this is an avenue to go down, speak with an accountant, it could be in your best financial interest to run your farm as a business and not just as a home or hobby farm.

Have a Farm Naming Party

If you can't come up with a suitable name yourself, ask for help. Have a brainstorming session with family and friends. Invite them over for a party or barbecue and call it a 'Name the Farm' Party.
Let everyone throw their ideas into an old milk jug, feed sack, or another farm-related receptacle. The reason for gathering everyone together is it encourages others to contribute. It will also give you better results. If you understand how a mastermind group works, this is the same thing. Ideas and names will come out you hadn't thought of before on your own or with your family. Having everyone together for a 'farm naming party' will reap more possible names than you can think of by yourself. Supply everyone with cards, pens, and pencils. If your guests have lived in the area for a long time, they may know the local history and come up with a name with historical ties. Also, ask for names in another language that could be used as part of the name. Spanish, French, and Indian names may be suitable.
Let the kids get involved as well because their imaginations are often less inhibited than an adult's and they may come up with a little gem.

Other Things to Consider

Choose your name carefully and think if you might be changing the product of your farm. For example, if your farm raises pigs, and you called it Makin Bacon, that isn't going to suit your farm if you change and begin selling eggs, honey, or vegetables. You don't want to limit your market by choosing a name for your ranch that is too specific.
How easy is it to say? If you're combining two words, does it sound right as one word? Is the name going to be confusing for others? If it is a humorous name, is it lewd with the possibility of offending someone? Remember, you're farm is your business and should have an appropriate name.

Can You Suggest a Farm Name?

Since publishing this article, I've had several people contact me, asking for help to name their farms, ranches, and homesteads. As I mentioned, brainstorming is a great way to get more names in the hopper and will offer a wider variety of choices.

Therefore, when I get asked a question about a name, I would like to throw it out there for other readers to suggest names. You can do this in the question section below. If, after reading about the person's farm, you can come up with a unique name, please share it with us. Let's make this interactive!

This content is accurate and true to the best of the author’s knowledge and is not meant to substitute for formal and individualized advice from a qualified professional.

Questions & Answers

  • My farm caters to all types of farming. Do you have any suggestions for a name?

    I suggest using either a name associated with your area or your surname. In your situation, you don't want to be too specific to a type of farming. I suggest a name such as 'Green Valley Farm' or ' Mountain View Farm.'

  • I am racking my brain for a name for my small 1-acre farm. I have goats and rabbits right now, but I will be adding some chickens and a small garden. My small piece of paradise has a huge piece of my heart because six years ago I lost my oldest daughter in a car wreck. My farm was purchased with the settlement money I received. I want something that will be in remembrance of my baby girl Rayshell. What do you think I should name it?

    I am sorry for your loss.

    Have you thought of calling it Rayshell? A name for a farm can be one word. You don't have to have farm, ranch, homestead etc at the end. I think that would be a wonderful name, and a tribute to her.

  • Our farm is 24 acres and will have horses, chickens, donkeys, and goats. It's in Hawaii, on a cliff, overlooking the ocean. We feel very blessed and are in heaven. Do you have any suggestions for a name?

    I can think of a few things to incorporate in a name. I would suggest you use a Hawaiian word meaning blessed, paradise, or loved. In this case, I would forget about giving it a name associated with the animals you may be keeping. I would concentrate more on the view, location, native flora and fauna, and possibly even the history of the area.

  • Our lake is shaped like an elephants head. We are in Mississippi on 92 acres used for fishing hunting and ATV riding. Any suggestions for a farm name?

    Of course you could call it something related to the shape of the lake, such as Elephant Head Ranch. If it was open to the public, you could call it a resort, ie Elephant Head Resort. However, is it possible to see it from an elevated position, to see the shape of an elephant's head? If not people may wonder why you called it that. Having a 'quirky' name, I think is good, especially for publicity.

    Something else to think about, the shape of lakes change over time. The shape could be maintained with the use of bulldozers etc if you found it necessary.

    If the shape is necessary to work in conjunction with the name, perhaps drone footage showing the shape would be a good idea. This would also give people an idea of the surrounding terrain if they were going to use it for off road vehicles.

    Capitalizing on what makes your place unique, is a great idea.

  • Our farm is in the valley of Sahyadri Hills near Bimashankar in the District Raigad, Maharashtra. Do you have any suggestions for farm name?

    I had a look at the images of the areas you mentioned. It's so beautiful there. I can only give your suggestions that are noncultural. I'm unaware of if you can give a name about a deity. Therefore I won't suggest those.

    I do see that you get many travelers through there. If your farm offers accommodation, you could call it Traveler's Rest or Pilgrim's Rest.

    If your farm has a view of an iconic place, such as the waterfalls or the river, mention that in the name.

    From the images, I can also see that Sahyadri Hills is also rich in flora and fauna so you could use the name of a local plant or animal in the name.

      Hi, we are currently looking to buy more land. We have one acre now but want to move and buy more. Hopefully a little farm. We already have a vegetable garden, chickens, rooster, dog and a cat. We're simple people with a simple lifestyle. I would like to think of a name with Parsons included in it. Any suggestions?

      Hi Jiya,

      You should go for a name that signifies your area, or a significant feature of your farm. Because you have a variety of animals instead of only one type, add the word farm or homestead to the end. For example, if your home had oak trees. White Oak Farm would be a good choice.

      What on or near your farm gives character to the place and will be a long standing feature?

      Use the name generator in the article but make it specific to your area.

      Hi Amanda,

      Consider a name that represents the area. Louisiana has a rich history and will offer many opportunities. Perhaps an Indian word, or something with a French flair.

      Use a translator if your French is rusty. Heavenly dream is 'rêve céleste'.

      Hi Darcy,

      I have a 12 acre farm near a river and swamp/bayou areas in Louisiana and I'm having a hard time coming up with a name. I will have horses, goats, sheep, rabbits, chicken, and quail. I need it to stand out enough so that it will be easy to market since I will be selling directly to restaurants and private owners. I am the sole owner of my property which has been a childhood dream to own a farm. Any suggestions?

      Hi Darcy,

      I'm sorry to hear about your bulldog. I think that Double L would be a good name. Deciding to select the ending would be down to the main purpose and business of the farm. If it is going to be just a place for rescued animals, I would go for that. If you plan to ask for charitable donations to support your rescue efforts, it would also lend more credibility to your endeavors.

      I am purchasing a farmhouse with acreage in Tennessee for a nonprofit rescue for animals including farm animals. I had a 9 month bulldog that I rescued with congestive heart failure. I did everything I could do to get her help and keep her alive but unfortunately I lost her. I named her Olivia George but called her Livie. I want to name the rescue Livie’s Legacy but I also want to name my farm. What suggestions do you have? Double L ranch? Farm? Homestead? Rescue? I am open to any suggestions!❤️

      Hi Heather,

      Your goal sounds amazing. With regards to a name, I think something general will be better. In essence, a name that will cover all the activities you plan to do.

      Names such as The Sanctuary or Safe Haven.

      However you can have something more obscure such as 'The Umbrella' because it offers protection.

      Regarding your question about grants. I love that fact that you are already pro active with this. Keep asking at the local government level for help. There is so much free advice you can request. Then look at federal government options. Also consider animal feed companies, and any companies who make money from animals.

      Send emails, write some articles for a local newspaper to generate interest. Also consider starting a crowdfunding campaign.

      Hi Angela,

      I understand you want a different name although as you say, River Oaks would suit it.

      I had never heard of that Navidad River so I Googled it.

      It has a rich history so you could use that information. Bigfoot or Wildman could be included into the name of your farm.

      Since your river fills Lake Texana you could use a phrase like, Texana Source or Font of Texana.

      You also could included Spanish, German, or Indian words in your farm's name.

      Hi Nancy,

      Start with a thesaurus, (they are online). If you begin with the word 'growing' it will give you other ideas. Cultivating, blossoming,flourish, become etc. Then add words about happiness, development, joy, etc.

      Basically a word about expansion or increasing and then a feeling word.

      Hi Mary, I am also from the surrounding areas of Fresno. I would like to start a farm that benefits adults with special needs. My daughter is developmentally disabled so I would like to create a place where her and her friends can learn about animals and farming. Perhaps we can grow crops to sell at farmers markets and earn some income. It seems like every name I choose is taken. "Growing Hope" " Growing Joy" I just can't seem to come up with a name. :(

      Hi Deana,

      I'm originally from Fresno so I know what you mean about those views. I loved seeing the mountains covered in snow on a crisp winters day.

      I'm guessing you have already considered, 'Just around the curve' as a potential name. The reason it would be a great name, is it is intriguing and when your customers ask about the name, they are engaged in your story. Engaged customers will return and also share your story with others.

      Other names could be using Spanish or American Indian names or words. Also consider where the road leads to in the mountains. Can you see a specific peak from your place?

      Also consider what is growing around you. Are you near the Blossom Trail?

      Think of Almond, grapes, peaches, etc. Use the word generator in the article to insert fruit, landscape, and foreign words specific to your area.

      Although your home is known as 'just around the curve', coming the other way, it would be 'Ahead of the curve'.

      We just bought 4 acres with 2 homes located at the base of the central California foothills. A large 1940s and an older simple bungalow, both fixer uppers. Beautiful views. Somewhat iconic as people of the surrounding area know the large house well as being the house “just around the curve”. It’s our dream to sell fresh goods at the roadside. Any suggestions? We would like something “different”.

      To be honest with you, I'm having trouble. I would like to pass on my condolences for the loss of your brother and his family.

      I would say that now is not the best time to make that decision. Although you want to show your gratitude by including their surname as part of your farm, in the future, you may wish a different name as it becomes 'your farm'.

      In your hearts they will always hold a special place that helped you fulfill your dream of owning a farm. Because you mention, that the farm is your, "piece of heaven". Perhaps that is the name, or a 'piece from heaven'.

      I wish you and your family all the best.

We are almost finished building our retirement home on the property and currently have chickens but plan on getting our horses and a few steer. We can not come up with a name.

      I think you're nearly there with the name. If you say the name without the word 'the' at the beginning it sounds much better.

      Deer Pond Farm, Happy Deer Acres, Deer's Abound, Wild Stag Way, White Tail Acres,

      Remember you can use words related to deer as well. Stag, white-tail, roe, buck, etc.

      Although you want to encompass everything about your farm, sometimes, less is more.

We are in a residential area, but on 2 acres with a barn, and now a fish pond, but the visiting deer are the main attraction. My husband calls me the corn lady because I always feed them corn and other snacks. My names seem boring and I'd like some character, flair, in the name! Help. "The Happy Deer Farm/Ranch" "The Deer Pond Farm/Ranch" The Ravenous Deer Farm/Ranch" Just not sure....

      It does sound ideal. There are just a few cautions I would make. Farms evolve and develop and although a farm may currently be having sheep, horses, and chickens that doesn't mean you'll always have those. Since you believe this will be your last move, you want to pick a name that will take you a long time into the future.

      I also have noticed that many people tie their professions or hobbies into a name. In your case you mention photography. Although it sounds like it could be used as part of name, perhaps it shouldn't. If you plan to build a business with clients coming to your farm to use it as a background then by all means use it. However if that doesn't pan out and it becomes a just a hobby do you still want to have your farm named after it?

      Regarding the land being shape like an hourglass, I personally like the sound of Hourglass Farm. It is one that represents the land and would be acceptable by another owner if you do decide to sell.

      We recently purchased a 21 acre farm. It is a multi purpose farm from raising sheep for fiber/wool, horses, chickens..will be selling organic eggs and also starting with aeroponics soon and growing mushrooms. I'm a professional photographer so the farm will also be a backdrop for photgraphy. If you look at the property on the map it is shaped like an hour glass. I have racked my brain coming up with a name that is unique. We are both in our 50's and this is our final place, our reprieve , our serendipity, our utopia. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated .

      I work for a packaging company having alot of land in their factory. We r planning to utilise 1 acre for vegetable farming for factory eatable rather purchasing from outside. We want to name the farm which can attract the employees and give them the feeling of eating something they are growing on their own. Appreciate if you could suggest some creative ideas

      Hi Marlene,

      Glad you like the name generator, you can see that it can create a wide range of options. Of course you can add to each section depending on your own farm or homestead's specific situation.

      We also have a brook that runs along one border but ours is seasonal. I do like the name Brookside Farms though.

      Thanks for your comment.

      Your farm name generator is the most fantastic tool ever. My husband and I have a brook that runs through the back side of our property and so we named it Brookside Farms. It's simple. But, I may visit your farm name generator to see if we can come up with something more exciting. Thank you for your very valuable information.

      A simple name that says your location, and what you do will work best. Indus River Camping or (campground).

      I would suggest naming it after a local species of bird. This can then have farm, homestead, haven, hideaway etc at the end.

      Great article. I have recently bought a farm and was thinking about a name. I am currently renovating the 1950s farmhouse and it is a very demanding job. It will be a year before I actually finish so I have plenty of time to come up with a name.

      There are so many names you could choose from. Try to add the 'fresh' or 'farm fresh', healthy, organic, harvest, natural, nature.

      You need to be careful that you don't use the name of an already established business. Check with the trademarks in your country.

      If not a farm or ranch, how about a homestead or 'patch of paradise'? Even if you don't 'officially' name it, a plaque or sign can add a sense of place and give it character.

      Thanks for your comment.

      Our place does not really qualify as a farm or ranch (too small) but I've often thought about naming it.

      Hi FlourishAnyway,

      I'm glad you liked it. I enjoyed doing the quiz, it made me stop and think about how important farms are in literature and in television and films. Although there are fewer people now on farms, there is still a longing for the simple farm life.

      Thanks for your comment, have a wonderful week.

      Hi Stephen,

      I'm glad you liked it, I thought that farm name generator would get people thinking. There are so many great names out there and I think it gives a farm personality.

      Great to hear from you, have a great week.

      Being a city boy I was kind of surprised when I first saw the title of this article. I was thinking ‘is this really an issue, picking a good farm name’? However, it only took a moments thought for me to realize that the farms I visit, or buy fresh produce from all have names, and the ones with the best names are the ones that came to mind first. I was intrigued, and had to read on.

      It was a very entertaining read, I enjoyed it a great deal. I also had a lot of fun with the farm name generator, even though I have no farm to name.

      I think the new name has much more personality. I'm sure that story is interesting.

      What's stopping you from naming your place? In the UK, there are homes and cottages with names.

      Thanks for reading, have a wonderful weekend.

      Our son's farm is called Lost Peacock Creamery...long story involved...they changed it from The Farmstead....I like the new change, and it goes with one of your suggestions. I wish I had a farm to name. :)

      Happy Weekend Mary!

      What a lovely name for a farm that would be. It sounds so bright and happy. I imagine she is thrilled with her results.

      Hi Louise,

      Living on a farm, I think puts life into perspective. Things that once seemed important are no longer even thought about.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the list.

      Thanks for reading.

      Hi Cynthia,

      It sounds like your area is similar to ours. My neighbors give me plants, lemons, soursop and various other plants and in return, they fish in our lake. It is more of a community atmosphere. I think everyone needs to pitch in to keep a community, especially in rural areas together.

      You did well on that quiz, I thought it was rather tricky.

      Loved taking the quiz! Scored 100% my husband would have been proud. We actually still watch some of the famous farm shows mentioned! We have yet to name our farm. We have struggled to come up with something fitting simply because we give away or donate rather than sell the crops and eggs we grow. We live in a very poor area, and I prefer to share the wealth so to speak with those in the area that may really appreciate the free eggs and other items we can offer. We farm for the enjoyment rather than any income. Very enjoyable read, and I have a few ideas to name our farm now!

      Hi Larry,

      That sounds like a great name. It also sounds like you love fishing, I hope you still get the chance to do some fishing from time to time.

      Great to hear from you, thanks for reading.

      Mary, I don't own a farm. I live in an apartment. I grew up a country boy many years ago and I miss the country life. If I had a farm I would name it,

      Trout Acres.
