Fresh Eggs !

We’ve spent all winter preparing the land for farming. In such a short amount of time, we have accomplished building the road, putting in underground telephone & electric power, and installed a water pump on our spring-fed creek.

Despite the extremely harsh winter we even acquired two livestock guardian dogs, four hens, a rooster, and a chicken tractor! Not a bad start if I do say so myself. AND…drumroll, please… We’ve already sold two dozen fresh eggs.

We are currently working on an expanded chicken pen and run. When we are through they will have a new coop and a 20′ x 25′ covered pen area. When they are not free ranging the pasture, they will have a large area to scratch in and do whatever it is that chickens do – mostly scratch.

Moonlight Over the Mountain

I wish this photo could do justice to the majesty of the moment. The full moon rising over the mountain just took my breath away tonight.

We sat wrapped in blankets for awhile just watching in awe.

Then we danced. Laughed. Gave thanks. 
We breathed deep- savoring the clean mountain air. We’ve worked so hard to get here! Tonight we rest and admire the view.
