  • It was a joke, chicken halfway house, and more

    Posted on April 14, 2016 by in Uncategorized

    It was a joke! If you didn’t catch the April Fool’s joke, please note that 100% of the information in last week’s email was false.  We will not be importing duck billed platypus, we will never feed our chickens Easter candy, and we certainly will never mix grass-fed butter with Country Crock!  But to those of […]

  • New sand, unique Easter eggs, and more

    Posted on March 12, 2016 by in Uncategorized

    Good news for sandbox aficionados This week we added new, finer sand to the sandbox and it’s absolutely delightful to play in!  I recently learned the cornstarch trick for sand removal– do you know it?  Cornstarch absorbs moisture.  So rub a bit of cornstarch on arms and legs before the kids hop back in the car and the sticky sand falls right off. Natural […]

    Posted on March 4, 2016 by in Uncategorized

    Sign up for bottle lambs We’re just a few weeks away from spring lambing, and every year we have a few lambs that are abandoned by their mamas.  (Sheep have an instinctive knowledge of how many lambs they can support, which sometimes results in rejection if they deliver more than they can feed.)  If your family […]
