Frontier Framing & Gallery

Frontier Framing & Gallery, a locally owned and operated picture framing shop and art gallery, has recently changed owners and has undergone a revitalization. Tricia and Dale Young purchased Frontier Framing & Gallery from long time owner, Martha Clinton, and have been trained under Martha's skillful eye. The framing shop is here to meet all your matting and framing needs; from original artwork, photos and prints, to needlework, and shadow boxes showcasing athletic jerseys, christening dresses, children's artwork, vacation or wedding photos, and much more.

The Young's are not new to the entrepreneur world. In the past they have owned and operated several small businesses including a custom sign making business, a t-shirt and athletic jersey printing business, and they have managed real estate. They always strive to provide top notch customer service and want to have each and every customer leave satisfied, with their expectations not only met but exceeded.

Tricia and Dale would be honored to help enhance and preserve your cherished pieces of art and will provide you with the best possible service. Stop in the gallery to find the perfect piece of exceptional local art for yourself or as a gift.

Custom matting and framing isn't all that's offered at Frontier Framing & Gallery. Tricia and Dale are also proud to support Emmett community artists. The wonderful watercolors of Tom Cunningham are currently on display in the gallery. Tom is a Distinguished Merit Member of the Idaho Watercolor Society (IWS) and has had watercolors selected to be in the IWS' annual traveling shows for the past six years. Also currently featured are the fabulous stained glass creations of Pam and Larry Snyder. Pam and Larry have been in the business of creating and teaching stained glass for many years. Stop by and see their impressive work. Tricia and Dale encourage everyone to come by frequently to see who's currently featured. Artists interested in displaying at the gallery are encouraged to stop by.

Everyone is invited to join Frontier Framing & Gallery (in the yellow house behind Roe Ann's) for an Open House event on Saturday, August 9 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Refreshments will be provided. If you are unable to make the open house, stop by and see them during their new hours: Thursday - Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by appointment. Frontier Framing & Gallery may be reached by calling 989-3899.

Babby Farms

Cheryl Harris has been working with people with disabilities for several decades and has always loved animals. For years, she was trying to think of a way to incorporate her passion for animals with her passion for helping those with special needs. She learned how animals can be used as rehabilitation not only for people with disabilities, but also for children, people with illnesses, and the elderly. In 2008, she bought a farm and two miniature cows. Then there were miniature horses and pygmy goats, followed by baby doll sheep...and eventually a baby red kangaroo. Eventually, the farm grew from two animals to almost 200.

Babby Farms is an exotic petting zoo. Their public facility is designed so visitors can get up close and personal with different kinds of animals they would otherwise be unable to see or possibly touch in such an intimate way. They give guided tours of the facility to provide a safe environment for people to interact with the animals, and each tour is very educational so visitors can learn about every animal and ask questions pertaining to them.

Babby Farms was originally a mobile petting zoo from 2009-2012. In 2013, they opened to the public. By charging a fee to visitors, they are able to bring out non-profit organizations including schools, at little to no cost to them. A future goal of theirs is to have summer camps for disadvantaged and disabled children to have the benefit of discovering the unconditional love an animal can provide.

Cheryl and Babby Farm employees believe "until one has loved an animal, a part of their soul remains unopened." Cheryl says, "Babby Farms uses animals as rehabilitation for children and adults with disabilities. By visiting the facility, you are giving us the opportunity to allow those with special needs to realize the love of animals."
