June 19, 2012 we welcomed new additions to our farm as 8 lovely Muscovy Ducklings hatched.   Mom "Chrissy" and  Dad "Jack" are doing a great job of keeping the wee ones safe as they free range about the farm.

Following the loss of our girl "Janet" earlier this year, we will be keeping one female to complete our trio, and the remainder of the ducks will be available for purchase as pets and natural insect control.

Welcome to the farm

Meet the first members of our new herd of Nigerian Dwarf Goats!

Stay tuned for the addition of a few more goats very soon!

On the left is Mia, middle is Marcellus and right is Sheila, who was just visiting .  All come from great milking lines.  A buck will be coming in to breed with the girls next year.
