  • While the winter slowdown has not yet happened, it does seem to be around the corner.  Or is that just wishful thinking?  At any rate winter is a time to regroup and plan for another year for the farm.  

    We always do some serious infrastructure planning to improve our management of pastured chickens and grazing sheep.  The goal is always about allowing for more organized rotational grazing and sorting.  We have gradually built our infrastructure as we also have grown emotionally and intellectually with our farming practices.  

  • We apprehend this is not a perfect world and as humans we constantly make mistakes. However, when it comes to the Bible, there is a major difference. This book might have been transcribed by mere mortals, but its content is not from this world.

    On Friday June 16th of this year, a small village in rural Nicaragua called Concepcion celebrated the opening of their first Catholic Church. The church was consecrated by the Monsignor Jorge Solorzano Perez, Bishop of Granada, Nicaragua and named St. Michael, The Archangel. The funding for this church was the result of several churches working together.
