We need more chicken pens. And the truck needs to be registered as a farm vehicle..in PA a vehicle needs to be inspected annually unless a farm vehicle..so form F from the tax return has been located and a trip to the state office is scheduled. The grass got too high so a neighbor had to mow, cattle delivery on Thursday, possible township lawn mowing violation in the mail to us, weeds high between vegetable rows, metal for feed hopper needs ordering but credit application must be completed, trip to locate a fax machine, trailer paperwork fail and now redone by one who knows better, photo selection and printing, frames for them for market, seed starting of flowers, squash, watermelon..maybe learn to ride a unicycle too?!
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.
