O.K. folks, we have done it here at Coon Hollow Farm, we have proven that age old question, the one people spend countless hours pondering, over and over again...which came first the chicken or the egg? Well the chicken of course and 5 months later we got our first egg! With 13 hens and 1 very handsome rooster we will soon have farm fresh eggs in our farmstand along with many other things!

Here is "Lily" the little Olde English "Babydoll" Southdown ewe lamb. She's getting so big and today she became a big girl because she got her ear tag that will forever identify that she came from Coon Hollow Farm. She wasn't even phased by it at all. I just can't get over how much she looks like her sister "Rose". They have the same parents but it is just uncanny how much they look alike! The only difference is she doesn't have that rose colored fleece, she has a pretty standard colored fleece. She has a personality all her own, here she just got into the hay!

It's official, "Sweetie" and her boys left this morning for their new home! She will be living with her two boys in Washington, Ct with a family that has also gotten the farm bug! The wether on the left has been named "Joey" and the brown one in the back is "Coco". I know they will be happy being together and enjoy their new family!

If you look at the center of this photo you can actually see baby bees being born. They are coming out of their cells for the first time. I just happened to be doing a hive inspection yesterday and caught this just at the right time. The other capped cells in the center are baby bees that are yet to be born, however I believe this is a bunch of drones. The hives are doing fairly well for this time of year!
