Happy Goats…..Happy Chickens….Happy Farm!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summer came in like a Tsunami this year. The wetness kept everyone inside and  fighting off the slugs. Fortunately  we entered  what you would  call our typical upstate NY summer weather…. 70’s, sunshine and a  relaxing breeze on the top of the  knolls. Olga and Olaf are enjoying the  feeling of being cashmere  free for a while with shiny  beautiful coats. We are about to welcome three new cashmere goats ,  Vina,  Gwen and  Giselle in into our barnyard family. This means  more pasture fencing and a  new barn. It also means more cashmere! With any luck from the fertility  Gods we’ll have some kids in the spring .

I have enjoyed having the time to sit and watch the chickens . The new lavender and white orphingtons  from Hinks  are magnificent.  Nothing causes you to stop and slow down in  this  busy life more then  summer on a small farm. There  is so much to see. Chores consume  much of  our time . However, the real gift is  just slowing down to watch and join the experience of the animals, the garden  and all that surrounds us. No cell phones , computers,  or  people. Just the barnyard and it’s simple balance.
