Dogs Are Smarter Than A Lot Of Humans

[caption id="attachment_516" align="aligncenter" width="268"] "Jumpin' Jack Flash"[/caption] Dogs are smart. People are dumb. There are some things about the behavior of people that I don’t understand. At the top of my list, just above people who trash our communities, are those who abuse and neglect animals, especially dogs. I understand that some people, through misfortune, ...Read more

Mr. Big Put On Injured Reserved List

Mr. Big's bruised leg is slowly mending. The good news is the veterinary quack on the farm who diagnosed a laminitis flareup was wrong about our miniature horse's ailment that resulted in a limp, or lameness. It probably won't surprise anyone that the quack's diagnosis was wrong.  Isn't there an old saw about "a man ...Read more

Something fishy at Costco

We were on our monthly Costco expedition, and while comparing the price of salmon and steelhead, we discovered something fishy. The salmon ($7.99 per pound) had been labeled and priced as ground beef ($3.59 per pound). That explained why we noticed two people buying an awful lot of salmon. But we opted to do the ...Read more

Does anyone speak dog? Not me, apparently

Little Golden Comets Are Growing Quickly

Seems only yesterday that these young girls were little peepers, but they're growing quickly now. They will eventually join their older sisters and become prolific layers. The day will come when the older girls just won't be able to lay any longer, and these new girls will fill the void -- or the nests. For ...Read more

Roller Derby Inside A Chicken Incubator

Just a few hours after the last of seven incubated eggs had hatched, the inside of the incubator looked like a miniature Roller Derby rink, with strawberry blonde "Uma Bombers" smashing into each other and creating a pile of motionless bodies plunged into instant sleep. Seconds later, they are off to the races again, exhibiting ...Read more

Chicks, Worms and Warm Weather

The weather forecast promises several days of sunshine and warmth ahead, so that means lots of ground preparation and planting opportunity. Not that anyone, least of all the Post Office, has been sitting around twiddling their thumbs waiting for this. The 60 baby chicks we ordered arrived from Iowa via the U.S. Postal Service a ...Read more

How We Roll
Farm Star

Our honeybees forage on a variety of crops planted on the farm, as well as native species of trees, plants and weeds.

We have many visitors to the farm each year. No visit is complete without some goat petting. When it's blueberry-picking season, the goats love culled berries.
