Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas
Happy Holidays everyone.  Lots of new and exciting things happening...I'll show you in pictures...

Christmas Cow her name is Spirit
This is Spirit she is our new addition to the farm.  A beautiful Jersey cow that is so sweet and gentle...she has been very patient with me during our times together in the morning and evening...I hope to improve on my milking skills quickly to make it easier for her!

This is Spirit's companion.  This is not her calf, but they have been together since he was born.  We have kept them together as they enjoy each others company. 

A big change for us....and loving it!

Last market of the year....

Table at the market
This is the last table of the year...not too bad.  It was a great season and great experience and now some time to relax and plan for next year.  Thank you to everyone for their support and encouragement. 

We want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday season and we look forward to seeing you in 2013!

Market in December?

Our garden is still producing...of course the cold hardy stuff like kale, arugala, mizuna and we pulled out some of our carrots the other day.  Because of this, we decided to continue with doing local farmers markets and have found an indoor market run out of the Waldorf School in Blockhouse, NS.  It is only about 30minutes from our place and you can visit http://winterfarmersmarket.org to learn  more about the market and what is offered.  It is every Saturday from 10-2 and  it is in a wonderful setting with a great group of people.  We participated this past Saturday and offered carrots, kale, cabbage and arugala for fresh foods as well as some parsley pesto, salad h'hiver ( a recipe of K's mom), and some soaps, lip balms and bath fizzers.  We also made up some Christmas wreaths which was a great learning experience and a whole industry here on the South Shore.  We forgot our camera at the market so no photos of the table, but some photos of harvest and the wreaths...
