Wonder Women

Wonder Women

Yesterday was International Women’s Day which I spent being wonder woman here at home.  A week ago I had a csection to birth my beautiful second daughter and I am supposed to be home taking it easy.  Both of my parents are here to help with the farm and watching my older daughter (wonder woman in training) while I am healing and taking care of our newborn wonder woman. Yesterday after lunch I decided that I wanted to walk out…

Boxes and boxes

Boxes and boxes

Moving is stressful and doing it with a farm full of animals and a baby is even more difficult.  We are however on the home stretch of this whole process.  Our house has sold and so we are just waiting on a closing date at this point.  We have not yet found a new farm to go to yet which is stressful but I have faith that it will all work out.  I have figured out mostly where all of…

•••• Winter Wonderland ••••

Well we are still here, perhaps a bit chilly but we are here. Our farm has been covered in a deep blanket… I mean smothered by a layer of snow. Normally I am all for branches covered in a liberty layer of white and a clean fresh snow to make fresh footprints in however not now. My chickens have chosen to stay in their coop for three weeks now meaning I also haven’t had any farm fresh eggs either. The…

Change is in the air

Change is in the air

Fall is quickly taking hold with the trees shedding their leaves and frost on the ground when I wake up. We put up more permanent fencing on the hill for the sheep to winter on.  The waters in the pastures this morning had a nice layer of ice on top that I broke apart for the animals. I realized that I have been feverishly knitting christmas gifts but don’t have a pair of mittens for myself. I worked Gus today…

Long days and good dogs

Long days and good dogs

As you all know the first day of fall happened recently.  For me this is a not so gentle reminder of the ginormous list of things left to do before winter.  My amazing husband Jeff has a full time job outside the farm (required to support my wool habbit) so I try to get as much done alone as possible.   This past week I decided it was time to move the sheep closer to the house up on the…

Dream Big

Dream Big

In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities. -Janos Arnay I thought it might be time to introduce ourselves since we have acquired so many new followers.  If you have been following us from the beginning you might have noticed that Cacia Farms has been many things. We started out when I convinced my husband we would raise meat rabbits on our 1/4 acre lot in our small town. Well 30 some odd rabbits, 3 cats, 3 dogs, and…

Fall is upon us here in upstate NY and with that the rush to get everything prepared for winter.  The girls will need to be sheared next month along with trimming their feet.  This will also mean I will have five more fleeces to take to the fiber mill to be made into yarn.  We have made a nice area on the hill to allow the sheep to winter closer to the house to make chores easier in the winter….

Not Impressed!

Not Impressed!

When my husband woke up late and asked if the baby and I could do morning chores yesterday I had no idea what I was in for!  Usually chores are easy and relaxing as I love going out and talking to my sheep (I call them my girls) all while Purdy dutifully watches over them.  Everything was off to a great start the horses were well behave and eating in their stalls while I walked out to do the sheep…

What are you waiting for?

What are you waiting for?

I had the most wonderful birthday yesterday spending quality time for myself.  My wonderful mother in-law watched my beautiful baby for me giving me the day off.  I had a lot of time to think about the past years up and downs and what I had learned from them.  Last year we made the decision to finally jump in and buy the farm.  We no longer wanted to wait to have our farm and start our dream.  Shortly after finding…
