  Love the pics of your farm. Did you say you were previously from Louisiana. Louisiana folks here too, our dream is to move up north and have a bigger farm. We are currently on 10 acres, and dream for a more rural area to be, and live out our dreams. Check out our other blog at www.cypresshillfarm.blogspot.com

Hi again,

I am more suburban than urban but I do long to be out in the country with a small house and a lot of land, but right now I am happy with what I have while I am saving for "The Dream"

Have a nice evening!

Come visit me, The Dream.

Funny you ask about wild turkeys, my husband and I took a drive in the country last night and saw 4 hens in a corn field. We watched for a few mins then were on our way. Very cool!

Have a nice night,

Come visit me, The Dream.

Your place is beautiful! I envy you your sheep - I'm a weaver, and am wanting to learn to spin. Since we live in NW Louisiana, we're trying to find a sheep breed that can withstand our hot humid summers. We also have chickens -- and the predator problems. My hubby accuses me of building the Fort Knox version of a coop, but at least I'm not losing my chickens to predators. It was about the only way I could figure out how to protect them. We also have Banties, but for my eggs I have New Hampshire Reds, Red Sex Links and Barred Rocks. I have others as well, but those three breeds have been the best egg layers for us. I chuckled when I read what all you grew in your garden. I've been accused of over doing mine, but now I have room to say that I'm not the only one! We're now in the process of building a raised bed garden that will also include a few fruits, as well as all the veggies. Good luck on your farm!!!

Thanks for "visiting" my farm. As to your question about which animals that I was thinking about adding, it was chickens, turkeys, and ducks. Unfortunately, I don't have room for sheep. Your pics look great!

  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!

  Thanks! How's the weather down there now? Fl had a pretty cold winter. We have a friend in your neck of the woods who raises sheep and herding dogs. Good luck with your crop this year!
