Oh the pain is real!

I had to do it! I had to buy store bought eggs! Oh the pain! The chickens are currently on strike. They are molting and getting their bodies ready for the Winter and have stopped laying. Sorry to all our egg customers too! This time of year the girls need to take the break and we must be patient!

This morning I made eggs with the last laid egg I had. The top one is from my girls and the bottom one is a store bought egg. You can see the difference in the color of the yolk, a brighter orange egg yolk from happy, healthy chickens versus chickens kept in cages and for the most part not even seeing the light of day. I think I will keep the rest for baking only until my girls get back to production.

Happy Thanksgiving from Coon Hollow Farm

As we stuff ourselves today and visit with family, I would like to say I am thankful for all the support of our customers and those that support what we do here. I am unwinding for the rest of the evening with a knitting project but reflecting on how thankful I am...

New England Fiber Fest Gratitude!

Our booth this year was bursting with our regular items as well as some new ones which were met with a lot of interest. 

Chester was ready to go too! For his first show he was calm and did well with all the pictures that were taken of him, the people petting him and just looking at him too! He was relaxed and at times got laughs with his antics.

Naomi's booth looked great with her hooked rugs and supplies.

The fleece sale was the biggest I have ever seen and at the end, almost everyone was sold!

I grabbed some time to run over to the historical reenactment  and saw this. I was quite intrigued and come to find out, it was the Viking group and they were make historical fish netting!

These were so cool! Indian corn made from rug hooking techniques! What will they think of next?!

Our sweet neighbors, 2 Teeswater sheep that were so well behaved, you never knew they were there!

A vintage loom that I actually have! This has inspired me to get using it! I love the table runner they are making here!

By the end of the Fair, Chester was just done! He crashed and we had to wake him up to get him into the truck! I would like to thank Naomi, the best booth partner in the world! Thank you to her husband Aaron for helping me unpack and pack the truck. Also thank you to all who took the time to buy from us, talk to us and for the booth neighbors who we share this weekend with and are always so kind! I have so much gratitude in my heart for this most successful weekend ever!
