Saying Good Bye to Al the Ram

This weekend we said good bye to Al our Ram. He was such a good boy, very gentle with the ladies and the babies, but it was time to cycle him out as we wanted to keep some of his daughters for breeding.

Winding Down to Winter

It has been quiet this Fall as we wind down the work on the farm in the blueberry fields. However, we do have a new batch of Wild Blueberry Maple Topping (previously Fusion) and added a Wild Blueberry Maple Syrup.

Blueberry Almond Crisp Recipe

Many people who pick at the farm graciously share their recipe ideas with us. This particular one sounds so good, I had to share it with you. It's particularly interesting because they used our Wild Blueberry Maple Topping (formerly Fusion) as the base. This gluten free recipe was adapted from the Cookie and Kate website.  We hope you will enjoy it.

Saying Goodbye to Another Blueberry Season

Our blueberry season was short this year, but still lots of fun. We met lots of new people and introduced them to the great flavor of wild high bush blueberries as well as the various animals on the farm. It was great to share our farm life with so many young families. Thank you all for your support this year.

Freezing Wild Blueberries

Our Wild Blueberries small and tasty, but the season is short. However, due to their small size, they freeze well and maintain their flavor for up to 10 months.

Sacha from France Returns for Blueberry Season

In addition to farming, one of the things we love is to host exchange students from other countries in our home. Oddly enough, when we retired, we missed the activity having kids in the house (OK, well I did anyway).

Taming the Sheep

We love our sheep and they are very friendly. But they aren't necessarily friendly by nature. We have to work with them so we can handle them when during their annual worming and vet visits. It takes a lot of time and patience.
