    Congratulations on being farmer of the day. I agree that the picture of your chickens is a marvellous shot. It's been a year since you joined the urban farm network. How's your garden doing? What sort of artisan foods do you process?

    They sure are my chickens! Shot of a lifetime really - I've tried to replicate it but they just won't pose for me! :-)

    I does feel satisfying to know where your food comes from doesn't it.

    Have a great Thanksgiving day.
