Welcome to the blog.

There is very little down time on the farm.  Not only are the sheep and goats still lambing/kidding, this is a busy time for meetings.  The Mid-Atlantic Fruit and Vegetable Conference was this week.  It can be exhausting.  Each session is 20-40 minutes of intense information, in a very condensed version.  Add to that the drive to and back from Hershey for three days.  Fortunately this year my volunteer was able to feed the livestock so it was a bit better.  Sometimes, though, I get a bit discouraged.  The agricultural industry is being inundated by more and more regulations and it can seem overwhelming.  But I think of how much I love being a good steward of the land and my wonderful customers and it raises my spirits.  Thank you.

With the cold weather upon us I start to think of cooking.  I went to a Farmer's Pot Luck last week and had to come up with a dish, FAST.  Trying to use what I had, I dove into my rather large selection of cookbooks, looking for something different.  I took out my pamphlet on how to cook cracked wheat bulgur and found a chili recipe.  It is a basic recipe that you can play with, easy to make, and rather quick.  Check it out.

With the cold weather upon us, don't forget our wool blankets and sweaters make great holiday gifts.  We also have wool hats, sweaters, and Christmas stockings.  Need a stocking stuffer?  How about our fruit butters.  We are open Saturdays and Sundays from noon until 5pm.

As our flock has been closed for about 20 years, it became time to introduce new blood into our flock.  I contacted Lane's End Farm in Jersey Shore, Pa and decided to buy our new ram from Jan.  Sunday I made the road trip up and back with the new guy.  Isn't he handsome?  Check out the pictures and then check out Facebook for the "name the new guy" contest.  Winner will receive either a $5.00 gift certificate or a free jar of fruit butter.

Well, we are as prepared as we are able.  Storm preparedness on the farm is very different yet the same.  We have to make sure we have food, water, and working generators in case the power goes out.  But we also have to think about the farm buildings and, of course, the livestock.  All of our water supplies require electricity, that is, the wells and the pumps that run the cistern water.  We must make sure the animals can get indoors, and have access to food and water if we can't get to them right away.  A lot of the preparatory work had to been done before winter arrived, but Sandy just pushed us ahead of schedual.  Stay dry!

Sorry for the short notice.  We are going to have the sheep shearers here this Saturday.  They usually start around 8 am and work until around 4pm.  Come see how the sheep get their "hair cuts".

On Labor Day we made some saurkraut.  We hope to be making more on Sunday, Sept. 9th in the afternoon, after the Navy Seal Benefit Challenge.  Stop on by if you are curious about how we make it.  While the recipe is not exact, the technique is tried and true.

Hope all of you had a safe, dry, happy Labor Day Weekend.  We celebrated by making saurkraut with our cabbage!
