Gifts come in many forms, often in ones that I do not expect. Racey continues her recovery from surgery now that more than a week has passed. The gift of slowing down is not always what we ask for, yet when accepted it is a treasure without equal. Thank you for all the words andContinue reading “Gifts for the Holidays”
I cut down an old maple tree this week. This old grandmother tree has many children scattered around the farm, I’ve written about at least one of them. There is a children’s song by a group we love in our house called Grandmother Tree by the Okee Dokee Brothers, the song tells a story aboutContinue reading “Grandmother Tree”
Fall has been kind to us. We had ample time to prepare for the inevitable first snow and frozen ground. And yet ample time does not always mean we are prepared. This year we were pretty darn close. Those of us on the farm who are warm blooded were not prepared however. Just a weekContinue reading “Christmas lamb and winter pigs”
When last we left, we had some very full freezers. So full in fact, that we could not even walk into either freezer. I put the word out for help last week and we were honored by the response we got. On a normal Monday we pack between 15-20 orders, and we had 46 toContinue reading “Record Breaking Day”
If you’ve been considering placing an order this month, help us out and place it now! If we get enough orders to pack on Monday then you can save me an expensive trip across the ferry to a freezer storage facility in VT. Tell you friends and neighbors, help us make room by filling yourContinue reading “We Need Your Help”
The end of October approaches and the costume box in our house, that was once forgotten is a treasure trove once again. With the costumes come the teachings of our children and the wisdom of the young mind if only I can find the presence to listen. What is a costume? What is not aContinue reading “Costumes and Cold Fingers”
Fall on our farm, and in the Adirondacks in general is spectacular, which is to say it is somewhat of a spectacle. Spectacle, from latin specere means to look and when we look we see an instant in time. And so I believe part of what makes anything spectacular is it’s brevity. Summer is chuggingContinue reading “Gobble Gobble”
We are so proud and grateful to be offering thanksgiving turkeys this year from our friends at Wrong Direction Farm, who raise excellent Pasture Raised Organic Turkeys. Our goal was to have the turkeys here and ready for sale starting October 1st, but the logistics of moving a pallet of frozen turkeys has taken meContinue reading “Turkeys and Giving Thanks”
Last week I found myself marveling at the swift change to fall, and as if to rub it in the maples, birches and the rest burst into color this week. Like so many aspects of my life, when I stop to notice, the signs have been there all along. We have a maple tree weContinue reading “Crisp Mornings”
Fall is here, and somehow the change seems abrupt. Was it just last weekthat I was in shorts and sweating with highs in the 80s? Our family has putcovid behind us, for now. We are all feeling much better, all signs andsymptoms of covid have faded. While I’m not sure it is a direct symptomContinue reading “Changing of the Guard”
