Tour Time!

Blog: Pleasant Valley Farm   -   Tuesday June 14, 2011   -   By Emily

If you live on a small farm, it's pretty much guaranteed that you'll be asked to do tours from time to time. People don't have personal connections to how their food is grown anymore, and lots of people don't have connections to animals either, not even pets....

A family came to the farm today from the city....they were lost  parked on the corner of my property with me and the chickens waving at them trying to get their attention. I was so self-conscious because my place is more of a construction zone than a farm...

What a nice walk we had today!  Though there was the promise of rain (and rain walks are, indeed, a charming and beautiful adventure), the skies cleared unexpectedly and our nature walk / educational walking tour of the wild edible and medicinal plants of...

Spring is on it's way!

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Friday February 19, 2010   -   By Larry

February is the shortest month on the calendar, thank goodness!  This month brought snow, rain, wind and cold temperatures.  Today it was over 50 degrees.  Strange weather when El Nino is in full swing.  We finally made it to the vineyard...

January

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Sunday January 17, 2010   -   By Larry
