First babies on the farm!

It's been an exciting and busy time at the farm. Valentine's Day marked the arrival of our first babies being born at Fallen Branch. Nellie delivered 10 healthy piglets late in the evening. Three days later, Maggie delivered eight little ones. Unfortunately, overnight, one piglet succumbed to the weight of her 500+ pound mother. Apparently this is very common but, nonetheless, heartbreaking. Both Maggie and Nellie are proving to be great moms while Oliver is enjoying his long uninterrupted rests.

There is nothing like being snowed in to force you to relax and enjoy the little things that life has to offer. We even found some time to read and relax between chores and snow removal. For supper we slow cooked one of our Muscovy ducks in green olives and herbes de Provence. Delicious! We sat in the sunroom and watched the snow blow around us while we drank home made beer and black walnut wine. Life is good! Saturday was a good day for baking home made bread and Irish apple cake and for cooking up a big
