Our latest acquisition

2 photos in this post. Since before we left the farm, Richard and I have been wanting to get involved in an additional business that would teach the children how to not only run a business but also how to make money on their time. As you well know, Richard and I are entrepreneurs. We definitely do not walk to the beat of the standard drum! We want to give these kids the opportunity to do the same and... read more

What would she think of the snow? She loved it just like she does the rain. Flap, flap, flap. Her bright adult plumage is beginning to come through. She has been molting pretty badly recently but the snowy background really... read more
