My friend asked for a farm tour this week after she bought a dozen eggs from me. “It’s not really a farm” was my response. I just don’t want people to get their hopes up about this big fully functioning farm. It’s an acre and a third with some raised beds and some animals is how I see it. Sure small farms can produce A LOT of food on an acre and a third. Some small farms can feed whole communities on an acre and a third. We don’t do that. We play with our goats. We grow some food. We sell some of it but we feed most of it to the goats. They really are happy goats 🙂
Well this weekend really helped us start to feel a little bit more like a farm. We were able to finish some of the projects we’ve been working on for quite awhile. Like the corral :
We took a couple of new soap bars to the KMK Organic Farm Store. It was so exciting to see that we were almost sold out of the Plain Jane Oats And Honey. As soon as we thought we were caught up we’re going to need to start making more back stock! We also dropped off a couple dozen duck and quail eggs to start selling there. During this drop off I also slipped in a couple bouquets of flowers to see if they sold.
This morning we all had a great laugh at one of our ducks that decided to perch in our olive tree.
And lastly the weekend flower arrangement. Since most of the flowers went to the farm store I went with a simple but elegant display of Icelandic poppies.
