Knitting classes are starting, hook-ins are happening, and the chickens are laying enough eggs that we can sell them. Quite a difference from day one when the farm looked like this:
Now that ratty, old falling-down, dangerous barn is just a memory
and the garden area looks like this:
But all that old wood has been saved and we will soon start construction on a farm stand, from which we will sell produce, eggs, Christmas trees and beautiful, wonderful yarn.
The new barn now has a matching friend.
It is the goat run-in shed in the west pasture.
Once all the fencing is complete, the goats will move into their new home. The old cliche that farm work is never done is a cliche for a reason. Because it's absolutely true!
In addition to the outside work, this blog is changing as well.
Starting tomorrow, you'll be able to follow the strange, yet oddly fun, farm activities at our new website, http://www.thatlldofarm.com/. The blog and website will be incorporated into one site. Please change however you have us bookmarked to find us at our new location. You'll still be following Brighton Wool Gatherings. We'll just be at our new home on the farm.
