Transitions

Fall is arriving and with it some seasonal transitions of crops in from the fields and poultry ready to be processed.  Today we took this year’s batch of 300+ Freedom Ranger chickens to Maple Wind Farm‘s inspected processing facility  and this weekend we will process our turkeys on farm with a great crew of staff, […]

Three Sisters

Corn, beans, and squash create a special alchemy together in the field and on the plate.  In legend, the plants were a gift from the gods, always to be grown together, eaten together, and celebrated together. This companion planting trio was widespread across North America and the Iroquois label, “three sisters”, is woven into contemporary gardening […]

The End of an Era

No, we aren’t talking about the Obamas (though a deep gratitude for their leadership and grace), but the end of another era here at the farm.  Perhaps a team nearly as famous, our first herd of goats and the queens of that herd, Ingrid Bergman and Grace Kelly.               […]

Ode to Winter Greens

May and August….the 2 months that seem to try the patience of at least these farmers.  Fortunately, we’ve had some extra hands lending some support around here. These August days already getting a bit shorter (whew!) and the hens seem to know it, but they have just been outfitted with some solar powered lights to keep […]
