A Cold Frame is born!

A Cold Frame is Born! Here is our new Cold Frame constructed in just one day, with minimal swearing (haha)! Measuring 5 feet in width it is quite a Cold Frame. It will soon be home in our new garden along with our yet to be constructed Potting Shed and Chicken coop. If you would like a copy of the plans contact us either by e-mail or phone and we'd be glad to send you a copy.

"Angus" the Mighty Llama

"Angus" the Mighty Llama

Angus is our watch Llama, rescued from starvation and a very neglectful place, he is the king here on the farm. With his baby blue eyes, he watches over the herd for any signs of trouble. He has gained weight here and is a sweet and gentle boy.

Angus and Fergus, our other Minature Llama, that was also rescued with Angus, are happy here on the hill. The two of them get into trouble especially when we have our backs to them, they sneak for an extra bite to eat into the barn. They act as a tag team!

Felted Soaps

Here are some felted soaps made at the farm. They are 2 ounce bars that are wraped in dyed sheep wool, then plunged into warm soapy water, then rubbed on a bumpy surface. This process shrinks and when it's dried allows the wool to shrink around the bar, now you have a built in wash cloth. The wool and the soap act together creating a wonderful bathing experience. The bars in this picture are patchouli, but we have them in our farm stand in numerous scents and styles.
