Glimpses of Farm Life!

Our days have been filled with swathing, raising baby chicks, gardening, milking the goats,trimming goat hooves, and making our first batch of goat cheese. Hope you enjoy these glimpses of daily life at Treebrook Farm during this summer season.

Putting up fence at Treebrook Farm. It has to be sturdy enough to keep the goats on one side, and the garden on the other!
