I’m truly grateful for this place…Green Hill Farm. And, what I’ve come to realize is that no matter the challenges of living here, my love for this farm is constant and irreplaceable. I love it for its enduring ability to lift my spirits, fill my heart, and give my life direction. The very thought of it…is joyful. I hope these photos of Green Hill Farm bring a bit of joy to your day. Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

Here are a few charming photos of their cute critters that Cindy graciously shared with us. I hope you enjoy! Have a wonderful weekend!

Braeburn Farm is a local farm, and the place where we learned about Scottish Blackface sheep. After participating in a shepherds’ weekend class nine years ago, we bought ten sheep of our own. And, because we so enjoyed our […]

We can usually look out of the kitchen window as day breaks and […]
