The Ladies

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Tuesday July 22, 2014   -   By Mona

As you may already know, last December we had alpaca ladies join our farm.   We had spent months trying to figure out how we could inexpensively build a new barn and pasture area for them.   We talked to other farms who house both...

The Sling - Part 2

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Saturday May 31, 2014   -   By Mona

Sometimes, despite your best efforts and intentions, things just don’t go as planned. Spring arrived, and Shiloh was not able to regain the use of her back legs. Loving animals means your heart gets broken when they cannot be the beautiful creatures they were...

The Sling - Part 1

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Monday February 03, 2014   -   By Mona

I really don’t need to explain to anyone that it’s been a brutally cold winter this season. Temps have often been near zero and with the wind it’s well below zero. The tips of my fingers go numb within a minute or less of scooping up frozen beans. It’s a...

Twenty

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Monday December 30, 2013   -   By Mona

Our little farm has grown to 20 alpacas.  This little fact now begs the question:  are we nuts?? In mid-November we brought home 2 more boys in need of a farm, Soloman and Sam.  Soloman is an all-black alpaca with a wild and curly...

Changes

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Wednesday October 09, 2013   -   By Mona

Oh my.  The past few weeks, we have been experiencing the best autumn weather, ever!!  The dew is usually dried off the grass by late morning.  I’ve been wheeling down a bale of hay around noontime.  Everyday, several alpaca...

Copper is home!

Do you all remember when our little Copper Moon was born? Well here he is now!  

Late summer on the farm

Blog: Bloom Where You're Planted Farm   -   Wednesday August 07, 2013   -   By Teresa

August and September are two of my favorite months here on the farm. Being in the pumpkin patch business I love October, too, but it comes with mixed emotions of the season drawing to a close.  August and September are busy and sometimes stressful, but I...

For Lisa and Val

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Friday August 02, 2013   -   By Mona

The camera is working again!  Definitely operator error folks, so we'll just leave it at that.  :) In honor of the camera finally working, the first picture is for you, Lisa!  Here in front is Desi in full fleece, just before shearing...

The Alarm Call

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Friday July 26, 2013   -   By Mona

Things are still strangely quiet on our little farm.  I just can’t explain it but it all seems so oddly quiet.  The alpacas have their occasional moments of rough housing and it’s odd not to see Julio step up.  Sometimes Guinness...

Quietness

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Tuesday June 25, 2013   -   By Mona

It’s been a long month since Julio left us.  Thank you all for your compassion and kind words.  Dan and I and the alpacas have all been getting into the new routine, the new normal.   The alpacas have been very quiet. ...

Best Buddies

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Thursday April 04, 2013   -   By Mona

One thing about alpacas, and usually all animals, is that they make me laugh every day.  You just never know what silly thing they will do, silly to us humans but I’m sure just normal activity for them. I went out to the barn last night for my...

Mud Season 2013

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Friday March 15, 2013   -   By Mona

This past winter has been cold and somewhat snowy.  For the past 2 weeks, it’s been snowing every day!  Sometimes just several inches of snow, a couple times an actual snowstorm of 12 +/- inches, and most days just what’s referred to as snow squalls...

Bring on Spring!

Blog: Bloom Where You're Planted Farm   -   Wednesday March 13, 2013   -   By Teresa

We survived the long winter, and although we're still melting from a surprise snowstorm over the weekend we know Spring is just around the corner! We had a very successful fall 2012 season.  So many new friends came to the farm and we are thankful for...

12-21-12 and The World is Still Here!

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Friday December 21, 2012   -   By Mona

And that makes me happy!  The alpacas are spending the day in their barn, due to the strong wind-and-rain storm we're receiving.  I can see them all cushed in front of the doorways, watching Mother Nature's wrath of wind blow the rain and...

December 8th on the Farm!

Blog: Blue Sky Gathering   -   Friday December 07, 2012   -   By Talia

Hi Blue Sky Friends!   Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!  I am really looking forward to being on the farm this weekend!  Blue Sky will be open Sat., 10-4, as usual.  Also, going on this weekend is "Open Barn" at the...

Barn Quilts

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Sunday September 16, 2012   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

You may have seen them in Iowa.  You may have seen them out on the prairie.  And if you make it down to the farm, you’ll see them right here in Sawyer County!  These precision-painted pieces adorning agricultural structures are known as...

Ode to the Red Wheel Barrow

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Friday August 17, 2012   -   By Mona

As I sit here typing this, I swear I can hear a bugle in the distance playing ‘Taps’ .................. Well, last evening it finally happened.  Our old, very, very old wheelbarrow, carried its last ever pile o’ alpaca poo over to...
