On tap now!

We just tapped up our triple IPA, Oh Bee-Have!. This is brewed with local wildflower honey from Stockbridge Farms and plenty of Amarillo, Citra, and Simcoe hops. This one racks in at 9.1%, but it's sooo smooth. 🐝

Before Minecraft, The Blocks Were Made Of Wood

I had a set of maple blocks. The tactile quality was amazing--so smooth. The blocks had a particular "clink" sound when they were stacked or tumbled over. Maybe I should get another set!

Before Minecraft, The Blocks Were Made Of Wood Don't call it a comeback: Blocks have been here for more than 100 years. Studies have shown they can help build language and cognition skills — and even help teach math.

This vegetable stunner of an entrée is an entirely meatless take on turducken, with butternut squash, eggplant, and zucchini filling in for the usual suspects. An added bonus: the cheesy mush…

Calibrating thermometers is something we have to do every time we process chickens under our HACCP plan.

Always double check the accuracy of your thermometers - at least once a month - by nestling them in icy cold water. If they don't read 32-33 F, they need to be adjusted. Learn more from Gianaclis Caldwell, author of Mastering Basic Cheesemaking, at the Mother Earth News Institute, November 12-15.

Does Hydroponic Forage Production Make Sense? 10/22/2015

Does Hydroponic Forage Production Make Sense?

Winter is the only time that we produce fodder for our animals, and it's a supplement, not a replacement for hay. When the grass is growing gangbusters, feeding fodder is unnecessary.

Victoria is for sale! Full jersey heifer (born 7-13-14). Raised on her mother. Very pretty, social, and very healthy. Currently on pasture with goats. She should be a great little family milk cow for someone! The gentleman who de-horned her for us did not do a very good job, so she is now a little unicorn :)

These pictures are two months old now. Victoria has grown a bit more. I'm happy to provide additional photos upon request.

$1,300 cash only. Serious inquiries only, please. We do not have a suitable livestock trailer, so you will have to provide your own transport.

More evidence that the key to allergy-free kids is giving them plenty of dirt — and cows

I've often wondered if we should start a "microbe sharing" service, like..."Send me a cotton shirt. I will wear it over my clothing while I brush my cow. Then I'll put it in a plastic bag and mail it back to you. You can wear it while you hold and handle your baby." I've heard of something like that. Crazy?
