Saying goodbye to 2015 ~ reflecting on the past year and all that we accomplished here on the farm.
Plantings of elderberries and many medicinal herbs .. incorporating Permaculture principles, creating hulgel kultur beds for plantings which save on watering and also, in the winter helps protect the herbs ..
exploring the farm and finding a wealth of herbs that grow
naturally here: burdock, comfrey, mullein, usnea and so many more yet to explore and find!
Its been a busy time here on the farm. Lots of perennial planting of herbs and veggies (asparagus)
Sprucing up the orchard, though we did loose 3 trees, and will replace those that didn’t make it.
The Elderberries are doing great! Now that they are weed free and not being choked out!
We found this wonderful young man Teddy Mattson from Thorndike ME who is certified in permaculture.
He is amazing with plantings and does Hugel Kultur. The below is our first finished Hugel with perennial herbs.
So much happening now and we are finally settling in.!
The ‘girls’ are just to sweet and love hanging out on the window.
He sure is getting big our little puppy.. he weighed in at just 100 lbs this June 2015 .. and he still is growing.
The sweetest pup you ever want to meet.

Consider what Dr. Mercola has to say in regard to bath and shower products:
“If I were to tell you that your shower and bath products could be putting you at risk for less-than-optimal skin and eye health, immune and endocrine function, would you pay a little more attention to your products’ ingredients?
Did you know that applying a substance to your skin isn’t much different from eating it? In fact, I believe it may be even worse.
And let’s not forget… a hot steaming shower…
* Opens your skin pores
* Drives a high absorption rate of chemicals directly into your system
* Vaporizes 70 to 90% of the chemicals present so you inhale them into your lungs
When you consider that products such as shower gels and soaps may be used daily, you can imagine the chemical residue that may build up over the years. (Source: http://bathcare.mercola.com/)
Essentially, it’s safe to say that if it’s not something you would eat, it is best not to put it on your skin.
We have added some new products:
