Our lovely Spring Calf

Many of you know that we were on pins and needles this spring waiting for Mama's calf to be born.  She had a miscarriage last spring along with Pepe and Pixie, and Dixi could not get pregnant  so our herd was dwindling.  We spent the whole year keeping an eye on their selenium levels and hoping for better outcomes this spring.  And low and behold on the beautiful spring afternoon of May 13th, Mama had a good sized healthy GIRL calf!  So healthy that 2 hours after her birth she walked from Read more [...]

My Favorite Winter Activity is Going Back Inside

Like it or not, when you live on a farm and have animals, much of your day is spent outdoors, in all kinds of weather. A cow eats 2 bales of hay each day and half a bale of straw for their bedding.  The chickens need grain and  you make more trips to the chicken coop to collect the eggs before they freeze. There is manure to haul and frequent checks to make sure the animals' water supplies are not frozen.  Gathering firewood to keep the home fires burning warmly and pipes from freezing. This Read more [...]

Who would have guessed it would be so Fantastic!

Last Weekend Hudson’s Basilica, a Huge Achitectural Relic near the waterfront in Hudson, put on a wonderful shopping venue. It was called “Farm and Flea”. Vendors with the most unique displays of their artisanal wares shared the space with food vendors and live music. It was perfect and hopefully they will do it again and again in the future.
