New babies being born on the farm is probably my favorite part of living where we do. I anticipate and calculate and eagerly await each new arrival with excitement and a belly full of nerves that everything will go just as it should.   We had the unfortunate reminder over the holidays that sometimes […]


Here is the story of how a seemingly normal family adopted pigs into their lives. The characters in the story by no surprise, are us. And no, I don’t think we are actually crazy and believe it or not, we have no regrets.   It all started the day my true country girl cousin called […]


Because living on a farm, raising three not so straightforward kids and managing the chores and daily routines of an active family wasn’t enough, I thought launching a business to fill a gap in the Canadian retail market seemed like a great idea!   So, the ideas started to roll around in what I am […]
