StellaLou is going through some very interesting changes. It has been a challenging and exciting year. Unfortunately, our posts have been few and far between. We will try to improve on that as the weather gets colder and the days get shorter and work slows down a bit.
My daughter, Hannah, her husband, Paul, and their baby, (little “Z”) have been living in the old farmhouse since the end of May. They have already done some brilliant renovations there.
J and I are, slowly but surely, having a house built ‘cross the drive. AND, as soon as we get the go ahead to move in, my mom (big “Z”) will move in with us. Yahoo!
So, as you can see Who StellaLou is…is so much more! 4 generations on this family homestead!
As all these changes are being made, our business and farm goals are, necessarily, expanding. Aside from the construction and renovation that is happening, we continue to garden, to tend the orchard, to tend the bees, to watch things grow, to extract and sell honey (We have plenty of delicious raw honey on hand to sell…Come ‘n’ get it!), to cook and preserve our produce, to make mead, to tend our chickens; to study and experiment and learn.
We will sell hatching eggs from our Icelandic chickens in the spring…maybe even some chicks. We are considering how we’d like to go forward in providing more educational programs. We are planning an event, open to all, in July.
So, stay tuned!
