Our CSA farmer retired last week. We were sad to say goodbye although we are happy for them that they are moving to a more rural area where it is cooler and I’m sure they will be much happier.
The girls and I went out to the farm last week to say goodbye and pick up our last produce, milk and eggs. We were also able to pick up 2 chickens since they can’t take them with them. Our friends (who live less than 2 miles away) have about an acre of land and do not have an HOA! They already have a horse, goats and 2 chickens.
So we asked if they could house 2 chickens for us so that we could continue to get fresh eggs. They graciously said “yes” in return for a loaf of my homemade bread every week.
The chickens seem to be adapting to their new home although they haven’t laid any eggs yet but then again its been 115 here and who feels like doing anything when its that hot! 8)
Now if we can just figure out a way to get a milk cow…
