    Does anyone have a Chicken plucker they could donate, let borrow, or sell to me? I have 13 cockerels to process and it would be easier with a chicken plucker. Thank you all!

    It is starting to cool down here quick. I put a few of my beds to sleep already and will do the potato beds when the plants die back and I harvest the potatoes. Have a Great Night everyone.

    Thank you very much Red Hill, I am really trying to keep people informed of what goes on at The Highlands. Continue to check in and you will see how I am working to change the farm. Have a Great Day!

    I like the way you continue to tell your story. I checked out your Facebook page. Lots of pretty birds on your farm.

    It has been really hot here at The Highlands. I have planted the potatoes and the tomatoes are coming along really fine. I will be harvesting some rhubarb and making pickled rhubarb to snack on. I will also harvest some comfrey for the compost pile. I hope all your gardens are doing well!

    The farm has a lot of standing dead oak trees. They are a fire hazard just waiting to happen so I am logging the dead wood and cleaning up. It looks like it will be a year before I get any livestock.
