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.

Season’s Greetings from Dutch Barn Farm!

Our friend here is “Maximus”. He’s a registered Texel ram. He’s 10 months old and cute as a button. Beyond that, he’s trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent (OK, he may sometimes be irreverent but those events are his job).  He has been seen helping little old ewes cross the road – but we managed to head them off. Basically, he’s our man.
 
He joined the flock on December 20th and we hope to see the results  of his amorous encounters in mid to late May.
 
Drop by and visit – you can get your New Year’s photo with him, too.

Judy & Marc.
