Our friend Tom working the sap line and raving about Elmore Mountain Farm hand balm.

Next to Christmas trees and chrysanthemums, pumpkins are the goats' favorite seasonal treat.

Peter

Motherlode of chaga found on Breadloaf Mountain - Chaga is a fungus that can be grated or chopped and steeped in water to make a great tea that's also really good for you.

hummingbird nest

After entertaining us for the whole summer, the hummingbirds have headed south. The nest is about 2-3" in diameter.

Not a great year for the garden with all the rain, but the onions and garlic did fine.

Happy Halloween from Elmore Mountain Farm

Rudy and Bunny

Rudolph 2005 - 2011: Rudolph, our 250 lb. wether (neutered male goat) died the other day after a brief illness. Rudy was the first goat born on Elmore Mountain Farm and was so small and sickly we had to feed him through a tube for the first week. He was both a big baby and a great babysitter, shaking whenever we had to trim his hooves but always willing to look after and protect the newborn kids that arrive at the farm each spring. We'll miss the way he used to peer over the pen at feeding time (the only one tall enough to see over), the way he liked to have his head scratched and how much he loved banana peels. Rudy had many friends, both 4-footed and 2-footed, and he will be sorely missed by all.

New Tenant!

21st century meets 18th century! Ben the work horse pulling cable for Fairpoint Communications. Apparently the horse can get places their equipment can't! Finally, we will have high speed internet

The Barn

Table Scraps

Nothing but the best for our goats: We used to throw our table scraps on the compost pile, but now we "double process" them by feeding them to our goats. Rotting celery with last night's refried beans anyone?
