CSA Update 10 or NO SLEEP TILL…. August

Thank goodness that Solarfest is over for the year and our visitors have headed back across the sea. Last week was filled with many late nights and far to many early mornings. I feel like I’m still getting back into the right sleep cycles. My friday rice workshop was the most attended of the day

CSA Update 8 or Where Have All the Butterflies Gone

The other day we were driving up our road and the smell of milkweed filled the car. The field where Meadow’s mom keeps some of her horses in the summer has huge patches of Milkweed that are in full bloom. It reminded us of our second summer here and how there seemed to be an

CSA Update #7 or Summer Loving Had me a Blast

While spring might have been long sprung, love is in the air, everywhere you look around. Well not everywhere but in at least a few spots around the farm. It started a few weeks ago with the pigs going through their first heat cycles with the new boar around. It looked like he did a

Deep Litter

Through the summer the chickens get to rotate around the pasture hunting for seeds and little critters. But once the weather changes over to cold we stop rotating them and move them to their winter home. This changes how we need to deal with there poop. As we rotate them the poop is spread over

And it came to a grinding halt

Working and living on a diversified farm demands much from ones body. Just doing our daily chores requires a bit of strength and more activity then the average American gets in a day. There are hay bales to be moved, buckets of grain and water to be carried. In the deep slippery snow just walking
