October 2014 in our vineyard
Our cold-hardy scuppernongs produced a handfull of delicious grapes! We also harvested our first cold-hardy Katuah Muscadines. Yumm! We swapped Fiona, one of our Scottish Highland heifers, for a steer so we will have one to take to the butcher next winter. Sandy, our 2 year old steer will be going to the butcher at the beginning of November. "Oh Pear!" is our sweet white donkey that has been bred to a zebra stud and is expecting a Zonkey this winter.
Katuah Muscadines - our first crop this year! ______________________
Zack, our new steer we swapped for Fiona, was born January 2014

Chemtrails over our farm has become a daily occurance. We don't understand why more people aren't getting upset with the huge volumes of aluminum, barium and strontium compounds that are raining down on us nearly every day.
