Ah, Lando Cowrissian. It's been fun. Your departure is a bit sudden, but definitely for the best. We have never raised a large steer through winter before, and we will never do it again. What a pain in the butt!  Before we took the critters off pasture for the winter,...

We just had the cutest little buddy born on the farm. He has very unique coloring - which reminded me of a little lamb born many years ago that had similar coloring.  This is Oak, born about a week ago to Princess Celestia. His twin brother is a standard black and whit...

So.... what got us here? Two science-type people from the 'burbs ran out and bought some acres in the rural-burbs. They opened some books, learned about farming, bought some chickens and some sheep, planted some seeds and some fruit trees and tried to make their acres...

One of the tough decis...

The round up for Thanksgiving was 192 turkeys processed on the farm in 3 days, and all but 2 were sold. HEY! We got to keep 2 for ourselves!  

 Another huge shout out to ALL of our volunteers this year! We can't do it without you, and Thanksgiving, as a holiday, ha...

This is a rescue we can really support! Last night, we attended the 5th annual Feast of Fermentation. It was hosted by the Boulder Food Rescue. This is a non-profit organization that "rescues" perfectly good food, that would otherwise be thrown away, and they get it to...

I've had this question posed to me before. And with an unfortunate listing on a webpage (where we were not asked for authorization of what got listed - don't worry, this has been resolved) our farm was listed as feeding ONLY grass to all our animals.

That just is not tr...
