Independence Day Chicks!

We were gifted this Silky/ Cochin hen, as a six week old chick in 2017 (I think) by Rachel and James Cubas from the Cochin hen at their school; Marimont Montessori in Pflugerville TX. Liam went to school there, for about two years, before…

Fitted Face Mask with Wool Filter

The mask thing wasn’t something I was eager to participate in. We are, after all quite isolated as it is. What use would we have for such a thing? But my grandparents asked if we could find them a few on Amazon and order…

Our First Calf

In these crazy times of ours there are still moments of beauty and amazement. I will try to catch up on all the fun and wonderful times we’ve been having on the farm even in the midst of this terrible pandemic. For now though,…

January 2020 Update

Saying goodbye to 2019 and hello to 2020

We want to thank all of you for a wonderful 2019 and wish you a very happy New Year! There were so many firsts for us in 2019 and we have learned much from each one of them. The festivals we attended for our…

Our Farm Fall Colors of 2019

Fall Trees

Yes, we’re almost into the throws of Winter, but for the past month it’s been difficult to tell from the beautiful weather we’ve been having. It’s been a little on the cold side (for us) the last couple of days, but for the last…
