We are having the most beautiful weather. Clear, sunny, warm with little humidity. It is a true joy to be in the farm. Everything is growing, producing and looking good. Much of the garden area is walk able, as the pathways have been cleared by human, pig and chicken power. The cattle herd are doing what they are supposed to do, the big pigs are installing their own ponds, the turkeys look great, the chickens are getting closer to the size needed, we are getting clean and gorgeous eggs. The temperature and humidity will climb soon, so we are loving this weather while we have it. Life is good.
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.
