I've been hesitating to write this blog as the fall has been particularly difficult this year at Fallen Branch Farm.    Normally, we are able to enjoy harvesting, preserving, and preparing for winter.  We usually have more time to enjoy the animals and even do some exp...

     It's a cold, rainy October day and I'm sitting on the couch thinking about what's been going on at the farm and in our lives over the past few months.  I have lots of time to think as I had knee replacement surgery 5 weeks ago.  About all I can do is...

     The temperatures have finally fallen.  The nights are better for sleeping, the animals are more relaxed, and canning season is drawing to an end.  We are busy now with fall jobs, preparing for winter.  The firewood has been moved in to the garage - all 14 cords....

     I'm sitting on our front porch looking over the pond, lambs grazing, and listening to the gentle bleating of lambs and goats as I blog about the summer adventures on our little farm.  Sounds idyllic.  Exactly how I thought I would spend my mornings in the country....
