  •  While the winter slowdown has not yet happened it does seem to be around the corner. Or, is that just wishful thinking? 

    At any rate, winter is a time to regroup and plan for another year for the farm. We have some serious infrastructure planning to do thanks to a grant from Animal Welfare Approved, which will allow us to add some fox proof fencing for our free-ranging laying hens; and some improvements to our sheep pastures that will allow for more organized rotational grazing and sorting.

    So popular are these smells that they’ve been packaged in Christmas aerosol sprays, candles, and refresher oils.
    Not so with the New Year.
