Lavender Orphingtons ….. my favorite color

Who wouldn’t want a lavender chicken! Most chicken breeds offer this color but the English Lavender orphington  is quite a sight. Not only is this breed winter hardy but  their feathers  truly look lavender in the sun. Our lavender orphington Princess Di was sent here from a breeder in the mid west and will hopefully breed with  some of  the  Hinckley lavenders that we hatched last Spring. The princess is accompanied by  of course with none other then  Prince Charles ……

Our Winter Wonderland on the Farm





Winter brings its own set  of  challenges in taking care of our animals, but it also offers a beautiful clean blanket of snow  to make them  seem even more amazing. Of course it helps to be a cashmere goat  during sub zero temperatures.  They love to roll in the snow and often look like  abominable snow goats during blizzards with snow stuck to them. Winter brings  peace and  serenity  to our small  homestead.




Laugh of the Day

In order to survive in this crazy world you have to find a good laugh or a friend who can provide one. Well farm life hands you plenty of laughs each day. I will share our laugh of the days here on Hulse Hill Farms and hopefully you too will find your own throughout the day!

By No Means an Expert…

By no means am I an expert in any area of my life and the topic of gardening is no different. The one thing I am smart enough to do is to surround myself with experts. Over the years the garden has taken on different purposes from ornamentally to become more dual purpose… pretty to look at but edible! Some of our favorites are: beans, sugar peas, eggplant, tomatoes, garlic, broccoli, cucumbers, and pumpkins. corn, lettuce/spinach , radishes, onions, herbs, zucchini, acorn squash, summer squash, zucchini, peppers, did I say zucchini?
