The herd of cattle move every day. As each has gotten larger, the grass consumption has increased. This morning they ate right up to the electric line and then stopped right there. That bit of cord that looks like clothes line has electric running through it and stops the cows from going beyond today's paddock. Doesn't that next paddock look delicious?
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.
