Happy New Year!!

We are spending the winter getting the new place habitable and planning lots of great projects for the spring/summer!1489173_1452837138263027_1923744111_n

We will be enlarging the rabbitry with larger cages to house breeding pairs or mamas with kits and try to solve the ventilation in summer / warm in winter dichotomy.  We hope to create a movable colony set up on pasture as well.

We have great plans for a compost-fed, egg-mobile for chickens and also set ups for several breeding groups of Buckeye chickens.

The goats will be happy to have a new pasture with rotational paddocks and the addition of ducks to the system.  Hopefully we will breed Rosie and have new goat(s) in June.

We will have a booth at the Independence Farmers Market this year selling “Bunny Berries” for folks gardens, mushrooms, marmalade, garlic (and maybe a few veggies), rabbit, and anything else we can come up with.DSC02269

We will also be expanding our crops of medicinal herbs and non-timber forest products.

It looks to be an exciting year with lots of new ideas to sprout and grow!
