This week, butterball the alpaca made friends with Tom the turkey.  Tom loves butterball and the two are inseparable.  With snow again, there’s mud again, and that means happy ducks this week too.  The ducks love the mud, and the biggest “duck” of all, Izzy the Goose (who thinks she’s a duck) loves mud the most too.  Mud is good for waterfowl, who gain significant minerals from eating the mud, and who derive some benefits from the dirt when it’s wet.  Besides, it’s better to bathe when you’re dirty.

 

This week we feature new products from AA farms of Lincoln County including hand-made dish cloths, live rabbits, soaps and lotions, and BS farms of Arapahoe County, with some excellent dried fruits and nuts.  Also new this week, correcting a major oversight, we list out all our herbs so you can mix your own tea blends!
