Ruffled Feathers and Spilled Milk

Farming with ducks and dairy goats, chickens and children.

Under The Wire.

Just in case you haven’t heard, all Santa’s helpers at Woodland Pond Farm wish you a Merry Christmas!

Which means even if the card didn’t make it to you through the mail yet,
thanks to social media we did get our holiday greetings out before Christmas. 
Boo-ya!

All is Calm. All is Bright.

I realize a lot of you are scrambling around in the stores and malls right now.  Sounds like lots of fun.  I, however, have been a bit pinned down.  2 of the kids were already out of school.  1 stayed home sick for several days.  And 1 lost a bracket off his braces and then [...]
