Living in a forested area of the farm, we are surrounded by thousands of plants and trees sharing their rebirth, with buds now opening into leaves and the first signs of branching. Each day adds another shade of green. There were two new calves born on the farm and they are a playful addition to all the new life and growth [...]
Here comes the rainiest month of the year, but we can always find something to smile about. Get out the boots and rain jacket, and make time to get outside to shake off the cabin fever.
