In 2008 my husband and I decided to try our hand at farming. We had no previous experience at what we were doing except for raising a few laying hens. After all the media hype with E-coli and other strange things in our food we just had a strong desire to know where our food was coming from. We both have full time jobs and a 14 year old son. We have jumped into this with both feet and we are learning as we go. We are interested to hear other people's comments.

Simonne needed a friend. I had always planned on getting another one. Then Dave brought Simonne to the vet because she had the flu and saw "the ad".
She's 10 weeks old, full of life and has stolen everyone's heart, including Simonne's. Please meet Emilie. I wanted to call her Magitte (a very old French Acadian name) I thought it was cute. All J. and Dave could say was, "We are not calling our dog Maggot!" So I told them I didn't want any cutesy names like Fluffy. I wanted a girls name. So J. came up with Emilie. She looks like an Emilie. She's also a peeing machine.
But honestly, how big can a bladder be on this cute little thing?
On another note. One of our friends from Louisiana comes down for the summer every year. I asked him last summer if he could bring Dave his favourite seasoning that he hasn't had in years!
