Judy's Dutch Barn Farm Blog

Book recommendations

When we're not weeding or feeding we spend our free time reading about beginner farmers, farming, and food and history.

Written by the chef of Blue Hill at Sone Barns, The Third Plate looks at what we're eating and what it all means.  Dan Barber comments on food by looking at the farming that brings it to his kitchen.

This is a series of essays on farming philosophy and sustainability.  This collection of works is base on Mr Kirschenmann's experiences on his North Dakata farm.

Farms with a Future is a how-to guide for the beginner small farmer.  Rebecca Thistlethwaite has put together important perspectives from farm owners and managers accross the country to bring home lessons all focused on sustainability.

Recipes

Here are some of my favorite recipes.  Needless to say, they're all better with fresh, local ingredients.

If you're a fan of lamb then you can find a lot more recipes on the fans of lamb web site.

Lamb Alert -- Spring is here!

Posted by Marc Kratzschmar on Monday, May 12, 2014 Under: Sheep

Spring means lambs, and both are now well and truly here.  Our last lamb was born today, bringing the total up to 98 and the pasture across the road is lush enough to graze.



Everybody loves a lamb.  Family and friends have been dropping in for weeks to see the cute, cuddly creatures.  This lovely photo was taken by Frank St Leger.

Now it is the turn of passers by to watch them play in the field.  We have become used to cars stopping at the side of the road.  Quite a few get out and take pictures.  Some bring their children.  It's a happy scene and everyone is welcome to share it.
