About John Young
An avid fisherman in his youth, John studied fisheries biology at the University of California, Davis. Upon graduation John served in the Peace Corps in Papua New Guinea. A farmer’s daughter, Janet grew up eating local, sustainable and free-range long before it was fashionable. Initially, John and Janet settled in the San Francisco bay area, but they longed for a more simple, self-sufficient lifestyle. In 1985, they moved to Sanger, California and broke ground on their first fish pond.

Good location for seeing both Yosemite and Sequoia
Had a great stay at the Little House on the Fish Farm. House itself is very clean, kids loved walking around seeing the animals (including friendly dogs plus various goats, chickens, cows, and even a turtle), and location was a good mid-point compromise between Yosemite to the north and Sequoia Nat'l Park to the south, both of which we wanted to knock out on back to back days. Arriving after dark on the first night the kids were looking at me like "what is this place, dad??" given the long drive back to the house that seemed a bit desolate, but after getting to walk around and see the animals and enjoy the surroundings the next day, they ended up being thrilled with a change of pace from the standard hotels that made up the rest of our Cali trip. John was also great to work with - very responsive and quick to offer help with any questions. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and our choice of this property.
I would stay here again!
The quiet country atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for but you are very close to town if you need to make a run to the store for anything
Perfect, comfortable, great location.
I loved the little house on the fish farm. I brought my family and everyone was very comfortable. We woke up to a beautiful view of fish ponds and a big liliy pond, I will definitely stay here again.
Great place to bring your family.
Magical Farm Stay - perfect for kids!
Many thanks to John for opening his farm for our family. My two girls 5 and 8 are still raining about the guided fishing day and getting to feed the goats. The house appears to be brand new and immaculate. The kitchen is well stocked as is the house in general. My girls played with their Xbox and my parents watched 4-5 dvds. There was also a great selection of children’s books and games. The farm is beautiful and there are a number of different farm animals. Spent the day in Kings Canyon which is about an hour away. Highly recommend this place to anybody! One of the most unique properties I have stayed!
Quiet place to stay at, clean and comfortable. There is a Super Walmart close to the location in case you need anything.
Life on the Farm within a short drive to SEKI. Perfection!
This property was perfect for our family - 3 bedrooms that sleeps 8, secluded on a working farm. When we pulled up on our first evening, the kids were so excited to check in on the chicken coop and pet the goats. We chose the location specifically for its proximity to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, but had no idea how much we looked forward to just relaxing back at the house. We truly felt at home there, and really fell in love with life on the farm. John was so friendly and gracious as a host, bringing a baby goat to play with the kids and introducing them to fishing on his stocked ponds. We cannot recommend this property enough - the next time we stay in the Fresno area, the Little House on the Fish Farm will be our first choice.
Little House on the Fish Farm is conveniently located near three national parks. We provide an affordable yet home-like alternative for visitors heading out to Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.
We also attract visitors interested in fish farming, aquaponics, and farm life. Many of our guests stay at Little House because they want to know where their food comes from and/or are contemplating growing their own food.
And of course, some come to Little House just to get away from it all...to relax, unwind, and enjoy the quiet stillness reminiscent of days long ago.
