About the Blog

Penelope is the model on our front page.

She came to us a year ago and gave us 16 piglets in her first farrowing. Unfortunately, her second farrowing involved some serious complications and she is no longer with us.

We miss her, but we have been enjoying her chops.

I am loving this country life in all its hardship and satisfaction. I’m learning my poop, as they say. Bovine poop, Porcine poop, Avian poop, Ovine poop….you get the idea.

How much can you tell from a pie?

When I’m not studying the natural fertilizers, you may find me moving fences, tending my garden, homeschooling my kids, fermenting my veggies, attempting to sew, or cooking up some delicious vittles.

Thanks for stopping by.  If you get a chance, come see the farm.  We love visitors and will find a way for you to  join in the good life for an afternoon.
