Rocks and Minerals

It wouldn't be a complete website if we did not offer some of our best selling rock, mineral and fossil kits to you! It is the bread and butter of our homestead offerings, the company that started it all and purchased the farm homestead in the first part!

Jessy has been a rock hound kid since she was 12 years old and started her company, Dragon Mountain Treasures, way back when she was just a little kid! She wanted to get started in rock collecting, however, we were so disappointed in all the starter kits available for children. Just little nasty bits glued to cardboard or in little plastic boxes, never really nice specimens. So Dragon Mountain Treasures was born and now after 10 years, she has supplied rock and mineral kits to just about every country and across the United States to jump start many a young rockhound in the world of geology and mineralogy! Over the Christmas holiday season, she ships over 400 individual orders each year to kids all over!

You can visit her main website here, www.RocksMineralsandFossilsforKids.com
or you can see a few of her most popular kit offerings here and order along with our Windhaven products!
Whatever works best for you and your rockhound kid!
