Responding to the urge to return to a simpler life through small scale organic farming. Ravenwood Farm & Art studio is a small homestead on the border of Putney & Westminster, Vermont. Our focus is on raising our own organic, non GMO food and selling any extra that we produce to help support the farm. As a retired professional artist I also use the creative process of art journaling and photography to help navigate the ups and downs of living life with a post Lyme chronic illness.
Well it was pretty late when our Boer goats arrived tonight so the photos and video I took are poor quality but we were excited so I wanted to recorded the event. :-) Below is a video of the girls arriving.
The doe and doeling settled in very nicely and they really seemed to like their new digs!
Mama's name is Three (We may change that to Thia) and her daughters name is Scarlet. They are so sweet!!!
Don taking a break, sitting on the ramp to the goat barn, earlier today. He has worked so hard all summer to get things ready for the chickens and goats. Took on a little too much at one time but now things should settle down bit as we head into fall.
The house across from us is for sale and has resulted in some faster than normal traffic on our road. Today we posted this sign to get them to slow down a bit ;-)
