    Last Saturday we had a field day at the farm. Between friends and ourselves, we had 7 teams of draft horses and a trio of mules preparing and seeding our new pasture.

    Pictures can be found here:

    Check out their farm. I would love to use animals to work our farm like they do.

    BTW, we ordered some of their hand-made soaps, and they are wonderful.

    Cyndi also introduced me to the wonderful world of Kefir, and I have shared it with 2 other "suburban" families.

    Great pics - love those belgians and mules - wish I had enough flat land to really let Molly work, she is so good about stepping right into the collar and going to work.

    Nice pics!!
