Christmas Turkey

I love turkey! If you’re like me and love these tasty birds, but the price of a organically raised, heritage bird is daunting ($100 easy)…this post is for you.

Accidents Happen

Accidents are part of farm life, but most of them are minor and I go on about my day. This month saw an odd spike in foot accidents – all seemed pretty major at the time but looking back I see the hilarious similarity. First to go down: Darryl. Our male farm cat had recently … More Accidents Happen
