Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

And I Also Stocked Up.....
.....on cheese. Sheep Cheese that is! I had been looking forward to getting some more sheep cheese at the Fiber Fest, and wasn't disappointed. I got three varieties of cheese, and some 'Smudge' which is fudge made with sheep milk. It's very, very good. In fact the first package got almost eaten when I passed it around, so I had to go back and get another pack later! ;-) Stoney Acres Sheep Dairy is located just a hop, skip and a jump down the road. I've been interested in going there to watch for several years, but have never gotten around to it. (Read, when they lamb and start milk production, it's usually lambing time around here, and I 'don't get out much' during that time..)
If you've never had sheep cheese (or fudge), it's great stuff and I find it doesn't have any lingering aftertaste either.
