Autumn's To Do List

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Tuesday October 15, 2013   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

I wake to another drizzly morning on the farm.  Even the roosters haven’t bothered to start crowing yet.  The air is cool, and I long to stay snuggled under the covers…just a bit longer.  It’s the first Saturday after the farmer’s market...

Spring on the Farm

What a week! With great spring weather,  we've been outside working on projects.  You know  the old adage, work on the farm is never done. Bev built some more feeders for the sheep, and we got those installed. Today we built a creep area for the...

The Purple Bunny Palace

Blog: Pleasant Valley Farm   -   Thursday February 24, 2011   -   By Emily

  We had a couple days of spring thaw here last week. The snow all but melted (so much so that the creek in the barnyard overflowed its banks with nothing falling from the sky!) and the temperatures were in the 50's to near 60. Something about...

Summer projects are in full swing, and we had a busy and productive three-day weekend.  I'm happy to report that the barn painting project is now done!  The north and east sides of the Pumpkin Barn & Gift Shop, and the west wall of the animal...

Our family took its first "grown up" family vacation last week.  We went to the Manitou Springs, Colorado area with my parents, brother, sister-in-law and niece.  My mom turned 60 in April and this was her belated birthday trip.  It...

Spring Progress on the Farm! (Sidewalk Project)

Blog: Bloom Where You're Planted Farm   -   Saturday April 10, 2010   -   By Teresa

So far, our spring is off to a pretty productive start!  After a couple weekends of vigorous yard cleanup (I still don't fully understand how ALL that driveway rock made it into the yard during snow removal!) we started on our first "pumpkin...

Rainy Days

Blog: Wild Goose Farm LLC   -   Thursday April 08, 2010   -   By Meg

It has turned rainy and cold here in northern Illinois. The pressure to start working in the fields is off. Now it's time to focus on some inside projects. I bought a used hoop house a couple of weeks ago. I'll spend today figuring out how to put it back...

Blog: Bloom Where You're Planted Farm   -   Friday March 06, 2009   -   By Teresa

Yesterday the temps rose into the lower 70s, and when I went outside in the morning I noticed the first little green sprouts peeking out in the flower bed on the south side of the house.  That was all it took for me -- I had Spring Fever, big time. I...
