Goat Baby Photo Blast

Katie&Leroy

Wow – these little ones are almost too cute to handle. They are all growing steadily, exploring the big world around them and climbing on everything they can get their little hooves on.

Swine Time

     We have problems here on the farm. And when it comes time to remedy those problems, our land ethic guides us in the direction of biological and low input mechanical solutions. You could call us hippies, Luddites or just old-timey curmudgeons, and you wouldn’t be too far off. So when spring rolled around…

The Definition of a Beekeeper

We are not yet beekeepers.  We are more like “bee putter in boxers.”  It was the “keeping” part that gave us trouble. Last week we purchased a package of bees, and with the utmost care and attention, sure that we were following all the sage advice that the internet and the library had to offer, we…
