Justin is our farm boy through and through!!! He loves helping his dad steer the tractor. As a baby Ron would take him in his car seat and he would be lulled to sleep!! He is very curious and a deep thinker. His questions often amaze us! Jadah has little fear when it comes to handling the livestock. This is Henrietta in the picture and is our one and only chicken who believe it or not lays us an egg daily and had done so all winter. Last summer we had 9 other chickens who would pick on Henrietta and we almost lost her. We put her in the barn and nursed her back to health so I guess this is her way of rewarding us. Now she has the run of the farm!!

It was an interesting day at the Farm to say
the least!!! This weeks weather has been incredibly warm and my animal
friends thought so too!!! I was walking outside and about to enter our
home when I discovered quite a site in my kids pool. There was my pot
belly pig Chloe laying in the water. Most people might "freak" but I ran
into the house as quick as I could to retrieve my camera. Chloe started to
get up and I thought I was about to miss my chance but to my surprise and utter
delight she looked at me and rolled over in the water again as if to say "NOW
this IS the LIFe""""I love it!!! It is NEVER dull here.....one April Fools
day a friend of ours put a sign at the end of our driveway saying "Funny
Farm!" It sure was today, Blessings friends

We are open Monday thru Friday from 10-4 pm and Saturday from 11-2 pm. Just call or take a chance and come by off hours and I am more than happy to accomodate my prim friends!!!!
My husband Ron also works from our home running a sawmill, plowing snow in the winter, making Maple Syrup in the Spring (which is also sold in our shop), haying and owns and operates a beef farm. He is my inspiration every day and the reason I took a chance and started my own shop here. We sell all your prim needs and if its not here I will try to order it in for you; gifts, decor, old fashioned pop and goodies, maple syrup of course, maple goodies and much more!!!
The shop has been busy today which makes my prim little heart sing!!! Well, off to work on some fair projects with the kiddies. Until next time......
A Farmer Wifes Perspective
A fArmEr WiFes PersPecTive
I have been a Farmers Wife for 12 years now and it is the most unbelievable honor out there!!! As a little girl I grew up with a pet bunny.......WELL.....that has changed considerably!!! My husband raises Limo cross Beef Cattle BUT when he married ME I had other ideas for us!!! I have said from the start of our marriage that a Farm is NOT a FARm without farm animals...SSSSSSS!! We started off with a Beagle Puppy named Moses, then we added a couple of kittens, then I discovered Pygmy Goats. They were adorable,,,small, cute and fun little devils!! Anyone who is thinking about buying a goat just remember it does not matter how well built your fence is they will outsmart you. Their goat motto is "Where there is a Will there IS a Way!!" However I wouldn't have it any other way. Every Spring there is new little baby born here or we get an extra special surprise like we did this year....TWINS. This year we had Dottie and Dash born from mom Tinker Bell and dad Mikey. Well, I don't want to give everything away on my first day blogging so until next time, Blessings to you and yours!!! Meredith
