We were booked this weekend! Many excited families piled in their cars from Manhattan, New Jersey, and Westchester to stay on our farmstead this weekend. We made pizza's together in the outdoor wood-fired brick oven, barbequed delicious Stony Creek farmstead meats, made butter, milked a cow, walked the farm for a full tour, and played in the creek to their heart's content. We even had some surprise guests of three German filmographers (whose film is opening in NYC this week) who helped with chores, built a pool in the creek, and marveled at the wonders of Maple Syrup. I think it is safe to say we were all worn out by Monday afternoon, when everyone piled in their cars and said goodbye to the farm.
So many other things going on it is hard to keep track! Our first CSA pick up is this week! The gardens are exploding thanks mostly to Patrick Hennebery, who is our new Garden Manager. And also to Chris and Jenna who have both just recently joined us in the last month and past week. It is tough sweaty work growing vegetables and animals the right way. But we are a dedicated bunch. Excited to see what the summer brings!! Lucia and Isaac are helping fill Sierra's water trough, this is the day before she calved.
