This is our new little ewe lamb "Lily". She got frustrated trying to get to the hay and decided to problem solve her way, she went high. I just happened to be walking into the barn and had camera in hand and caught this shot of her. She is quite the problem solver and very smart!

Our Bee Packages have arrived! In this picture is two "packages of bees". They are held together by small pieces of wood so they don't tip over. A queen is in each package. The top is held down by a piece of wood, under that wood is a can inverted with sugar water for the trip.
Each package contains three pounds of bees, which is the equivalant of 10,000 bees! In this picture the bees are clustered around the queen who is in a "Queen Cage" until we install them into the hives. We are very excited to have the bees back and I am sure our neighbors too, the gardens are always at their very best with the bees pollinating them! Between manure and bees you can never go wrong!

These Herb Window Boxes are available at our farmstand. Tim built the boxes, I painted them and we grew many of the herbs in the cold frame or over wintered them. We have culinary as well as tea boxes available. We have a large assortment for whatever herbs you may want. They make a great gift as well and are reasonably priced at just $8.00 for the small and $12.00 for the large one. The one in this picture is the large one. The farmstand will be opened every Sunday ffrom 12 to 4 weather permitting of course...
