My Old Kentucky Home (May)

A little over a year ago, we found our slice of heaven here in rural Kentucky. Just a couple of city kids wanting to play farm. And we jumped right in to our 10 acres. Immediately, we added an orchard and a garden. Not long after that, we added an apiary. We love working our little farm and we keep busy at it! A busy day makes for a restful night!

Congratulations Karin!!! Everyone loves a spring chicken! This one is 10 days old and ready to spread her wings! That's what spring is all about... getting out there and getting busy. We love it! Karin is the April Hen of the Month and we love what she's doing by being more self sufficient. Karin writes:

Having spent 4 years at the Naval Academy and 10 years in the Navy, I have a soft spot for my fellow shipmates! Anne is one of those shipmates and our March Hen of the Month! Congratulations Anne! She writes: "My husband and I love our chickens. We both grew up in the city and often longed for a more simple way of life. We met while both serving on active duty in the Navy and that in itself is a busy life, traveling from one place to another....

Amy Barr and her Tennessee flock wins this February's Hen of the Month. The Mighty Angmar strutting for two Araucana Gals sure looks like Valentine's Day on the farm.... or an early spring, perhaps? Just because Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow (and the cold air keeps hanging around) this year isn't stopping The Mighty Angmar from stirring up some spring magic! Thank you for your submission Amy!

Dorcey raises her girls in Southern California! She likes to feed them organic whole grains and they're kicking off their year with some healthy and hearty Organic Grains (as they always do)! Furthermore, Dorcey's flock is growing! We think that's a great way to kick off the new year! Dorcey writes, "I love my hens not only for their eggs but also as our pets. I love it that I can get fresh eggs from my back yard and know that they are eating organic feed and are free range. They always come running to us when we go out to see them. I have three that are lying at the moment and six new additions."

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!
