On a chilly morning with temperatures in the 30s, a fresh egg still warm from the hen becomes a hand warmer!

It's really no wonder why we love our old barn so much. The large barn was what first drew us to this farm. I couldn't wait to push open the large doors to see what was waiting inside. Since then, it has been a shelter to raise the animals that call ou
I can always count on Abigail to be front and center when there's a camera to be found. She's always ready for a close up!
