good food = good life
The farm is beginning to stir with new life as 2015 begins to assert itself with sunny skies and warmer temperatures. Among the new arrivals this week are four American Guinea Hogs procured from our friends at Second Spring Farm in Rochester, WA and 25 new Black Star laying hens. We have our farmers market applications in [Poulsbo and Wallingford], the new CSA information is available and applications are rolling in, we are seeding flats and beds and starting to work ground in preparation for the field crops.
This winter found us busier than we had anticipated as we put up a timber-frame animal barn. This dramatically increases our equipment, grain and hay storage and gives our animals some inside space during the cold and wet months of the year. We have also continued work on our farm house, spent some time visiting family and enjoyed lots of time sitting and reading beside the woodstove. As it seems winter is over here beside the Puget Sound we are turning our faces towards spring and look forward to seeing you all soon at a farmers market near you.
