May 5, Homer's birthday..and the peach trees have fruit all over them..the chickens help by scratching up all the bug eggs in the ground under the tree..and leaving their waste, which turns out to have almost identical chemical composition to the "fertilizer" sold in bags in stores!
I am the lucky woman who gets to be the farmer's wife to Homer Walden, the hardworking, creative and innovative force behind Sunnyside Farm. The farm is a pasture based intensive grazed farm in Dover, PA. We grow heirloom, open pollinated vegetables, chicken, eggs from heritage breed chickens, beef, heirloom breed turkeys for Thanksgiving and pork with no commercial feed, honey, eggs, Buff ducks. And the occasional flower or 2.
