Back Again

If you had been wondering if Triskelion Farm was still going strong then let me assure you we are alive and well, and running like the wind (the snow has gone but the mud remains)!  The year passed us by really fast and we find ourselves once again with two pregnant cows, but with a little more experience!  

Bessie and Rosebud are due in August, and we are hoping for their usual charming additions to the bovine world.

Following on from our last post (geez was it May last year!) the Guineas have gotten bigger and look ready to combat the might of the crittur world.  Hopefully no more ticks, and a few less veggie eaters in the garden!
We have continued to add to our fruit trees and in addition to apples, pears, peaches, and cherries we have blueberries, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts and chestnuts (hybrid Dunstan for disease resistance).  In a few short years (and critturs permitting) we should be getting a veritable cornucopia to grace our vegetarian table.

Well back in the saddle (or yoke, depending on your animals) again and hopefully posting more frequently.  A Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New year to all you cow and horse lovers out there, from all here at Triskelion Farm.
