pasture chickens

The pix was taken late afternoon yesterday as the storm was kinda rolling in ... it looks like a lot of chickens but when they see me they all run toward me ... no worry NOT out of love for their farmer but for that bucket of grains I was carrying ... !!!

Lots of wild flowers ... many think of them as "weed" but the bees and other polinators love them ... We keep them ...

Here the chickens have nicely spread a whole line of hay where melons and zucchinis were planted last summer ...

At the end of the day we found 2 eggs under the garden bench, no time to go back to the coop when you are hard at work in the garden ...

The New Leaf Market 5th Annual Farm Tour is upon us and we are doing some serious feathers fluffing around here to be ready for it !!!

The chickens are rehearsing, the ducks are running around, the geese are keeping everyone under controll and this year you add to all the commotion a flock of turkeys !!!

Farm life is an ongoing circus and we invite you to it !!!

We are open on Sunday the 21st from 10am to 4pm.

Aside from touring the farm with your farmer at 11am - 1pm - 3pm we have a tractor load of activities :

our Bistrot under the Oak will be open for lunch, featuring our farm products,

learn about our backyard beekeeping and help us raise funds to increase our bees population,

kids (young and old) will make seed bombs and miniature garden to take home,

check out our new garden worm composting installation,

get up close and personal with our turkeys and our geese,

meet our small herd of Gulf Coast Sheep

... and our shop with all our goodies will be open too ... (a good idea to bring a cooler).

All this is made possible because I have a great group of friends who come to help me ... To Them a huge thank you ...

Thank you to New Leaf Market in Tallahassee for inviting us and for their ongoing support to small local farms.

We hope you join us for a day of fun ...

wear closed comfortable shoes, we will clean up nice but it is still a working farm.

No pets, No smoking.
