A beautiful Springlike day

I know that Spring is not actually here, but there are signs that it may arrive eventually. We have snowdrops blooming in the front of the house. The sun is out and you can walk around the farm without a parka. Fancy, our Jersey, is pregnant. Carrissima, our goat, looks like she might be pregnant too. The chickens are laying more eggs. Life is good. I went on a little photo tour of the farm today.

All the animals, as well as the humans, seemed happy to be out in the sun.

We sampled our milk at a local fair called the "Taste of the Palouse." Our milk sold out at the store and we've gotten several standing orders for milk and eggs. In fact, there is so much demand for the raw milk that we could really support another dairy cow. Somewhere down the line I suppose. We recently got our piglets for the year. We are hoping to add a beef cow to the mix, but we'll see.

Life is very, very busy but really wonderful all the same. I feel truly blessed.
