In February of 2009, my husband and I bought our first home located on a few acres in Johnson, Vermont. We live here with our dog, Ollie, two cats: Elvis and Atticus, six Nigerian Dwarf goats: May, Chutney, Poppy, Juniper, Willow, and Jokers Wild, and about fifteen laying hens. And to top it all off we welcomed our daughter, Isabel, into the world on January 11th, 2011.

We're slowly updating our 1850's farmhouse while steadily working towards a healthy, meaningful, self-sufficient life together.

This blog details our endeavors along with our successes and failures- all in good fun. Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon!

Her tail ligaments are just about gone and have softened considerably since last night.  So I think we'll have some new additions to the farm within a day or two.  I'm home early from work so I can keep an eye on her.  Keep her in your thoughts, please, she is such a little goat with an enormous belly- hopefully her labor will go smoothly and we'll have a healthy mama and baby goats by the end of it.
