Eleanor had visitors yesterday. One of my very best friends came over with her 2 children to see the farm. Her 1 year wasn’t terribly impressed, he just wanted more puffs… Her 5 year old, who had never touched a chicken or a pig previously, couldn’t get enough.

Eleanor showed off her chickens in their winter location (the chicken tractor was moved closer to the house and out of the way of snow plowing):

Eleanor took us on a hike and showed off her loop trail:

Finally, Eleanor showed off the newest piglets and showed how to pet them:

Ruby certainly got her maternal defenses up when the piglet advised of its displeasure at being held!

We ended the afternoon with hot chocolate to warm up. We look forward to future visits and showing off the farm, especially this winter as we kick off sugaring!
