As Thanksgiving draws near, we'd like to give thanks for all of the people that are so passionate about getting involved with the food that eat, enjoying simple things and getting back to the basics. Christine and her boyfriend have put together a chicken coop out of recycled materials, tried incubating their chickens, have taken on a rooster and multiple hens. They're having fun and successfully maintaining a productive flock. Congratulations on being the November 2013 Hen of the month. Christine writes:

It's fall and most things are starting to wind down for the year but the Hardin's are just getting started with their Black Australorps. So, as many people are "falling into Christmas", the Hardin's are getting started with a new venture and are starting to raise chickens. No reason to wait until the new year to get started with new ventures! Colton writes:

Diane is one of our customers that raises her girls in the Bluegrass State! She just acquired 6 chickens that appear to be Plymouth Rocks. She's feeds them organically because she personally avoids any food that might be genetically modified, she follows the same guidelines for her chickens. Here is her story about No. 1!

Home Sweet Home (July)

Home Sweet Home (July)  Rate it

We have 2 Speckled Sussex chickens and 1 black Labrador Retriever named Maggie. One night at dusk as my husband tucked in the chickens and Maggie for the night I heard my husband frantically yelling "Maggie whoa, Maggie here, Maggie whoa". Our dog has a history of running into skunks, so when my husband came into the house and said "it's worse than I thought" I feared another skunk attack.
We Bought a Farm! (May)

We Bought a Farm! (May)  Rate it

We moved from NJ to Beloit, WI two years ago. After renting for a year, we bought a victorian farm house built in 1865 that sits on ten acres of land. We immediately began making Plans for our little farm. I could envision chickens running around and my children chasing after them. I could see them riding horses on the trails in the woods and me milking goats. We know nothing about farm animals, etc.... at this point.
Felicity's Farm (April)

Felicity's Farm (April)  Rate it

I am writing about a business that is very new to me. It can be done at your home if you have a yard or even a few large pots on the patio. It doesn't require a formal education... just some patience, good fertilizer (we recommend manure and peat) and some muscles for shoveling dirt! It is really not unique, but it certainly does seem to be in this day and age. Can you guess what it is yet? A home-based farm!

Snowball (February)  Rate it

We are just getting started with our "Hen of the Month" program. Snowball is our first selection. She is a Silkie that hails from Pennsylvania and is our February Girl of the Month. It's wintertime and Snowball is the perfect name for the season. Betty is Snowball's caretaker and therefore, our "Happy Hen Owner of the Month". By her own admission, she spoils Snowball "just a little bit".
