All the Manhattan family cuddling up for a Monday snooze fest after a big party weekend on the farm.
We feel so lucky to have @mtietz15 @jmfontaine92 in our life and we were so honored to have their wedding here on the farm last night. A magical night it was. #finallyfontaine2018
Maisie's menagerie isn't helping our efforts at convincing her that the road is a dangerous place to play.
Milk is our medium.
Back home where the pastures are tall and lush and green, but still filled with so much love from our weekend in the desert celebrating @abestreep @stephmjoyce.
Adolescent roosters. SO awkward.
here are three of my favorite goats - Cy, Eva, Woodsy. We are all a little older these days and have different haircuts, and more kids, and the leaves are not yet neon, but otherwise more or less same same. #friends
Thunder and Lightning as kittens.
Meet Adele's daughter - Zepplin.
Did you hear? Goats like smiley people. Duh. They also like chin scratches, butt rubs, acorns and apples. So - save the date for our 6th annual fall Goat Hangout and get in on all kinds of goat love. Saturday September 29th from 2-5. *we have been so thrilled to watch this event grow but please note that in order to keep the human to goat ratio at an enjoyable level for all involved, this is now a ticketed event, link in profile to tickets and more information.*
Still feels a whole lot like summer and a lot less like anything else but im not complaining because it's going to be cold for a long time -that's guaranteed.
No need to build jungle gyms around here.
Dumbo and Carnegie.
Oh hello. We've been naughty goats all week.
The @bigpicturefarmhouse has been booked solid all summer. It has been a treat today therefore to get it ready for our own friends. There are still a few weekends left this fall - get some friends and come experience paradise - live on a farm for a weekend without any of the farm work. 😉🐐💖
The kitchen garden in August after a very hot and very very wet summer.
When you come back to your farm and your animals are all still there. And happy and healthy and in new pasture. When the garden is tended, and weeded, and pickled, and fermented. When your kittens all wander off but then are found. When the goats wander off but don't torture your neighbors at the same time. When the caramel has been made, the cheese tended and sold. Thank you @jesschick33 @thesandandsoil @k8vonfeldt @dan_mckenney @kamykvt for keeping this wonky ship afloat. We should leave more often. 😉
Waking up far far away from the farm is so so good. Almost didn't make it to my family's spot in Canada this year for the first time, but very thankful the stars aligned so we could sneak away for a quick trip. Needed some quiet to realign heart & mind in all the proper directions.
