  • Sometimes during the furious flourish of spring, with all its birth and burst and hustle, it's important for me to stop and stand quietly with someone who's been around here awhile. #oldappletherapy
  • This guy knows how to lay drip tape on a sunny morning. #barleywisdom #farmdog
  • This climbing rose is one of our favorite plants on the farm, and right now it is ALIVE. Wendell basks in the buzz. #wildfarm #forestwalks
  • Making the most of an early spring carrot bed decimated by slugs. #nimblefarming #supposedlycarrotslovetomatoes #lettuceinalltheplaces
  • During a challenging Spring, we find comfort and confidence in a beautiful bunch of carrots. These sweet neon Nantes have carried us through the first few farmer's markets. #hightunnelmagic #wishthebedwentforever #smallvictories
  • Pretty sure this little monkey was born yesterday. #dontblink #farmkid #imonlyalittlebitscareddad
  • Sometimes when we move fence, we also find treasure. This makes me so darn happy. #harrierhawk #farmlife #rodentcontrol #mamabird
  • Jollypop play date on a rainy day. #blackwelsh #pastureraisedexcepttheswampdays #lamb #heritagebreed #grassfed
  • We are pretty excited about all the new life on the farm right now- in the barn and in the greenhouse! #lambs
  • That first amazing bite. He's been waiting for this day for months. @uprising.seeds blacktail has done it again!
  • Thank you for waiting- both of you!
  • Found this little treasure in a low thicket while clearing blackberry along the creek. I was worried we'd spoiled the nest so we re-covered it with a clump of sticky/Velcro weed. This evening mama had returned and flew to a branch nearby while I intruded one last time for a photo. Any egg ID'ers out there? #birdsofthefarm
