Default Your Local Organic Farm

I followed a sandwhich board one day while on my way somewhere else, and found myself looking over rolling acres of multicolored rows of flowers and vegetables. The farm is called Tangerini's, and I really need to get out there next year to take some photos when the sunflowers are in bloom! It's such a beautiful place.

Tangerini's is wonderfully community-oriented. They have CSA's, a nursery, an ice-cream shop, hayrides and other goodies for the kids, pick-your-own this-and-that; plus the farm is open for people to come take a walk in, free of charge.

If we weren't working so hard at growing our own produce, I would sign us up for their CSA.

Have you got a local organic farm that you would like to share with the world?

I see that chicken. I'd like to try my hand at a few chickens. Do you have any plans to buy a few for eggs?

Oh dear, I've been caught eyeing the chickens! Yup. . . I did my homework. We can keep chickens here, just not roosters. Once we get a proper fence around the garden, chickens will become a possibility. Added bonus: they eat ticks! I would keep chickens for that alone!

I've been exploring the possibility of getting some chickens as well. DH is more knowledgeable about raising them then I am, but I can learn. Also wouldn't mind having rabbits again. We have some "issues" with the county zoning. So asked my attorney to check on that for us. Several neighbors still keep cattle, chickens and pigs.

Many years ago we use to raise New Zealand rabbits and their poo is worth its weight in diamonds.
