In the Good Ole Summertime

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Friday July 06, 2012   -   By Mona

Ahhhh........ summertime.........   The grass is green as are the leaves.   The days are long, hot, and sticky followed by a hopefully cooler night.   Thunderstorms pop up occasionally to water the earth and cool the air.   The garden...

Back Online

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Sunday November 06, 2011   -   By Mona

Needless to say, last weekend we received well over a foot of snow and lost power for several days............. Our shearer had come by early Saturday morning to help us trim the alpacas’ toenails.  Dan held them and Jay trimmed.  Thank...

Earth Day 2011

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Friday April 22, 2011   -   By Mona

I would say my life’s mission is to leave the world a better place than I found it.  Our farm’s simple mission statement reflects that .   A friend of mine from college used to say, ‘Of course I want to take care of the planet.  It’s the...

Winter 2011 continues

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Thursday February 03, 2011   -   By Mona

I woke up this morning at daybreak and noticed that it was snowing.  I’m not sure if I should end that statement with again or still.   Dan was out on the tractor for almost 5 hours yesterday, clearing and widening our driveway and the path down...

New Year's Eve 2010

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Friday December 31, 2010   -   By Mona

(most of today’s post is a re-print of last year’s post) I love New Year’s and the hope for new beginnings that it brings.  On New Year’s Eve Dan and I like to sit back and reflect on our past year and create our goals for the New Year.  Our...


Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Monday September 13, 2010   -   By Mona

Spring arrived early this year, followed by an early starting and very hot and humid summer.  We are so very grateful that after several years it’s also been a very dry summer.  Continuing this new trend, it now appears that autumn is arriving...

Barn with a Brunch View

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Tuesday August 31, 2010   -   By Mona

Dan has been working most of the summer to build a lovely set of stone walls just opposite the paddock and barn.  Our land from our back yard to the barn slopes downward gently and it’s along this line that he has been creating a(nother) place for me to...

A Warm Spring Day

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Thursday April 08, 2010   -   By Mona

I would love to have all summer days just like yesterday - mid 80’s with lots of sun and a gloriously strong warm breeze.  Stella has been chasing butterflies, running like a puppy on too-long legs.  When she gets hot she finds a cool spot in...

And Yet Another Storm

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Wednesday March 03, 2010   -   By Mona

Last Thursday, New Hampshire, and most of New England and New York were hit with yet another seriously strong storm.  The weather forecasters talked about it for days; you’d think the apocalypse was coming.  They’ve been pretty wrong quite a bit...

Christmas Greetings

Merry Christmas Everyone! And thank you for reading our little blog! ~  Mona, Dan, Stella, and the alpacas at Sweet Harmony Farm

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr .........................

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Thursday December 17, 2009   -   By Mona

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....................................  Wow!  Is it ever cold outside!  With below zero temperatures it is quite a struggle to stay warm outside when doing barn chores or just walking Stella.  Stella and our indoor kitty,...

The Senator

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Monday November 02, 2009   -   By Mona

Another thing about autumn is the coyotes.  In the evenings and throughout the night you can hear them howling.   Lately it sounds like it’s coming from the woods down the street, but many times it is the woods across the street from us in the...

What we've learned so far

Blog: Sweet Harmony Farm   -   Thursday August 27, 2009   -   By Mona

Our first week of raising alpacas has been basically, blessedly uneventful.   They’re such quiet and peaceful animals.   Not that we were expecting them to be constantly animated, but after a few hours we were saying ‘hey guys do something! ’ ...
