Eggs and Berry Popsicles!

Eggs and Berry Popsicles!

3 eggs in the coop this morning when Beth let the chickens out for the day. A note about free ranging: we don't. We used to be pretty lax about letting them out but we paid dearly for it when we lost 3 chicken ladies to what we assume was a fox. Our chickens have plenty of room, space for dust bathing, perching and fresh picked grass and veggies on top of layer pellets. Just a personal choice but not only do we rely on the eggs as a food source but also every animal lost here is the loss...

Some play on a farm.

Up at 7 this morning but Mae was pretty fussy all night, woke up talking about it being winter time and snow on the ground. Beth went to get the animals taken care of and milk Marilyn. While Beth was milking Marilyn she was thinking about the Stafford Farmers Market coming up next Saturday. Will it be busy? Will people like the  Spiced Apple Cider and Pumpkin Crunch Cake or Smores candles? Her thoughts were interrupted by Lila our wild child of a goat barreling into the garage. She has separation anxiety when Marilyn is away from her, and she...

Christmas already?

Up early with Mae this morning. Paying for the 7:20 wake up yesterday. As usual Ozzie the silkie rooster starts a chorus of cockadoodledoos between him and the other two Roosters. With a chilly night, Walter, our needy cat was glued to Beth under the covers all night.  Walter is quite literally obsessed with Beth. When we adopted him as a 4 week old kitten he was less than half a pound, with pneumonia and such a high parasite count that he had a pretty severe heart murmur. Beth sat up with him many nights certain each breath would be...

Beth was up early this morning to get the critters taken care of before heading off to work at the vet today. Mae slept until 7:20am. Hallelujah. Dan has munchkin duty today. Sees our silke roo loose and get all scratched up trying to catch him. Boo. Last night he stayed up working on the label redesign for our products. To incorporate our new logo. As summer winds down last night was perfect sleeping weather, windows cracked open! Sitting here writing this listening to the roos crow, one thing sticks out in our life right now. We just really stinking...

A morning in the life of us.

A morning in the life of us.

As usual Mae woke up super early like the true farmer she is! We checked on the batch of candles that Dan made last night including our yummy layered smores candle. I set Mae up with a silly youtube video of cartoon animals slopping around in the mud (her laughter at this video is so animated and silly) so that I could let the chickens,ducks and Matilda the Saint rabbit outside and throw the goats more hay. Mae does best if we keep busy, so to work we went cheese making,freezing homegrown kale, dehydrating bananas and blanching our own summer...
