Mon. Aug. 9th...And There Came Unto Them...All Natural Food...and it was Good.....
Once upon a time in a land not so very far away....lived a beautiful maiden by the name of Sweet Vicki... and she was dwelling in the land of the Cluckin' "A" Critter Farm......the finest little kingdom in all of Upstate New York. Sweet Vicki was ruler of the kingdom and surrounded by two faithful canine partners whose job it was, to protect her and give company unto her when she was lonely. It was a fine kingdom of nary ten acres and had the potential for many pleasing and beautiful structures, but how should one lonely, beautifully fair maiden accomplish such ends by herself?
One fine day a handsome, young Dutch Prince appeared... riding into her kingdom, asking kindly of the fair maiden, a place to rest and food to eat. In return for her kindness, the handsome young Prince vowed to help her build her kingdom into an unbelievably beautiful Agricultural Estate, so befitting to the fair young maiden that she would naturally request his presence always remain with her.
Upon seeing the vast Agricultural kingdom they had both created, it was decreed by the Princess Queen that the handsome Dutch Prince should become her King and share with her, the rulings of the kingdom estate.
And it came to pass that there were many subjects dwelling in the kingdom Of the Cluckin' "A" Critter Farm, LLC.
Happiness of the kingdom's subjects were the upmost concern of the king and Queen and they spent their days making happy their followers and providing their every need and desire......and it became well known by those around the kingdom, for many came to see and visit this fairytale vista of happiness and tranquility.
The kingdom continues to thrive and grow to this very day and the King and Queen still provide and enjoy the company of their subjects, along with the five princess canines and three feline harlots that dwell in the main mansion. All's well that ends well in the kingdom and surrounding area........ The End
This brings me back to my present reality and the natural food thingie. We have good news, in that we have contacted both Burt's Mountain Bee's on Saturday and Green's Vermont Maple Syrup yesterday while in Manchester Vermont, about representing them here on the farm and at the various farmers' markets, by selling their farm products in this area. The discussions were positive and we will hopefully work out all the details and soon offer honey and maple syrup along with our eggs and chicken at markets and here on the farm, at the roadside stand. Both entities are very professional and dedicated to providing a zenith product, which is totally in line with our commitment to all our customers, so we excitedly anticipate a great working relationship with both businesses.
The Southern Vermont Arts and Craft show at Hildene Meadows, Manchester, was a joy to attend yesterday. We took a few pictures where we could, but you cannot snap pictures inside the vendor tents for obvious reasons. Below are pictures for you to see what the event was like.
Today, we must go for chicken layer pellets and think about going for shelled corn too. The girls in the hen house are eating us out of house and home! LOL..... Well, in reality, they are demanding good pay for great eggs....at this time, a fair exchange; as long as they produce enough to keep the egg stand filled!
After returning, we'll possibly start work on constructing a sheep's stall to contain the voraciously piggy little lambs, who will stomp all over anything or anyone in their way when food is present. You cannot control them and they dash through any open gate where food is involved.......therefore, I am building a stall containment area inside and outside the barn to enlarge their living quarters away from the alpacas and ducks before we have flattened feathered quackers at mealtime.
