Winter cometh

IMG_0636Life on the farm really connects us to the seasons. In the spring we’re ready to get moving with shearing, crias, baby chicks and other new life. Summer is always busy with the rotational grazing of many of the animals. Fall is a welcome change from the summer heat and chores consolidate with moving the animals into their winter pastures or into the barn.

While the cold and snow make some of the work challenging, overall it is a relaxing, restorative time of the year. Getting more time with the fiber is a treat. Knitting, spinning, weaving and felting in front of the fireplace is something I look forward to every year.

We are grateful for all of you that support us throughout the year. We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving with those you love.
