Homer runs Sunnyside Farm, a pasture based farm in south central PA. This is the farm blog, written by the farmer's wife, Dru.

The temperatures are cold. We have frost free water taps at a couple of different spots on the farm. The one inside the hoop house burst earlier this year, spewing water in every direction with only a bit going down the hose. The other one burst last week.
Yesterday new frost free bibs were purchased. Today the underground pipes are unearthed, the old pipe removed and the new one installed. Even in winter water is critical!
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, and gorgeous flower arrangements!
