We're in Western North Carolina...north of Asheville and tucked in between the Blue Ridge and Smokey Mountains. The mountains in the picture are the Blue Ridge. I must confess that we are quite spoiled for we take the Blue Ridge Parkway back and forth to the grocery for all seasons but winter!

We have banty chicks now...A present from one of the best farmers we've ever had the pleasure to know...Mr. Charles, WWII vet and life long farmer, and recently deceased.

Unfortunately, we had an episode with predators and lost a number of eggs just getting ready to hatch and a hen. It was devastating to me. We thought we had a very secure chicken coop and even Mr. Charles thought so! So, now we are bringing in reinforcements!! Any suggestions would be appreciated!

We also want to add other chickens but we don't know much at this point. Again, any suggestions would be appreciated! These would be for eggs only.

I really want to open the farm to abandoned roosters (those taken as chicks for people who want to do urban farming and then learn that that BIG chick is a male and can't stay in the city!).

Our love is our sheep. All were destined to be Gyros or lamb chops or moms to future lamb chops. They are now great friends and protectors. Most people think sheep are clueless and shy. Not so! Our Black faced suffolk, Loo, won't let any human or animal around me that he doesn't know! He's an incredible guard sheep!

I hope you'll enjoy the pictures!
