Since Thursday I have been catching up after a week away from Lilac Hill. Preparing the farm before vacation is intense -adding extra waterers, fencing extra pastures and attempting to make farm chores easier for our farm caretaker. In spite of all the preparation, having a caretaker that can manage the unexpected is well appreciated.
A week away without internet and with the company of Rebecca Thistlewaite's, Farms with a Future , gave us time to think about the future of our farm. We have come up with some plans to better manage our livestock and this bit of ridge in the Muncy Hills.
