Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Monday August 13, 2012   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

Doe and 3 fawns

Blog: Blue Moon Lavender Farm   -   Tuesday June 15, 2010   -   By Magdalena

Our lavender farm was graced this morning with a visit of a doe with triplets. The babies are wobbly on their legs, reddish brown with white spots, and quite adorable. The mother seemed unperturbed by our presence, and calmly kept grazing on grass, while the...
