Knee high to a grass....blade!!!

Say hello to Capri, the elder half of our future wagon team! I told the Farmer that the wagon better be not any bigger than a radio flyer, or it won't be moving! Capri, and her daughter Patches have been residents here for several months. If you recall , last Spring they had a dashing suitor visit for a few weeks, a little Spanish Stud, ( and I mean little) and we will soon be able to tell if his visit was "fruitful". Believe you me, if not, it wasn't for lack of his relentless efforts.  Hopefully, by next Spring we will have a new addition or two to the Equine population here on the farm. Needless to say I am still on the lookout for a team of mules! As winter is approaching, the farm is settling down. The days are spent insulating water pipes, patching leaks, bedding the sheds, and storing feed and hay. The tomatoes hanging in the barn are still ripening beautifully, come get some fresh tomatoes. .......and Green Onions...... everyone needs to make green onion dip for the Holidays. The goat milk supply is slowly decreasing, as the girls are further along in their pregnancies. The cow milk supply is holding steady. The market will have some Holiday treats as well as the goat milk soap, honey, bakery items, and dairy products. Plenty of preserves and assorted pickles and relishes to choose from. MARKET HOURS: Thurs. Fri. Sat. from noon until 4:00PM. We will be open Thurs. Dec 23, and will close until Jan. 6 2011. From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!
