Who Are We?
...and a few of our barnyard friends!
Quite a few well fed cluckers call our backyards home. We have an assortment of heritage breeds including Ameracaunas, Red Stars, a Leghorn, Barred Rocks, Cuckoo Marans, Brahmas, Rhode Island Reds and Australorps. Most of them have names, and they all have distinctive personalities! We'll be working on getting a larger chicken coop built during the winter this year, so stay tuned for the chance to see our 'girls' at the farm next season. Eggs will be available for purchase only at the farm stand!
And our hardworking draft horses...
And meet Cain and Pete, our favorite team of draft horses that help us to keep the farm tidy. They live down the road, and visit the farm to run their antique equipment around our fields, with their owners, Ken and Beckie- a very talented couple that are always going the extra mile to keep our farm looking and running great!
“I am beginning to know why I am here, and why I want to stay… Foremost, my work and my pleasure are one and the same thing. I can make fewer and fewer distinctions between what I must do to make a living and what I want to do with my time. There are few places that I want to leave this place for. This very ordinary piece of land has become my home, my office, my laboratory, and on it I am able to work, play, study, and live, all the while enjoying an environment that is so beautiful, so stimulating, and so seductive
that I have become unfit to live elsewhere.”
