Wanted to share some photos from today at the farm. It's early fall and the trees are starting to change and the light is growing tired. The garden has sent forth quite the nice butternut harvest and the pigs are out in the woods enjoying new "pasture" in the woodlot and snooting through the dirt. The two ewes are new additions to the farm! They are here to be bred for the spring, and have some lovely romney/merino cross wool to hopefully be turned into yarn. It's encouraging to see this little piece of land hosting these future roasted squashes, pork feasts, and wool hats while they are on the vine and hoof. To some people, this looks like a lot of work. To me it looks like a lot of safe.
