Community Herbalism!! Loose tea and salve 101

 These are a few photos from the DIY workshop that we did today, the family was so helpful, with Lena especially doing many things to help. We sent our guests home with 2 blends of tea that they blended, after learning about the herbs, and can give out as homemade holiday gifts.  The salve didn't get finished, in time to take home, but I am making deliveries! All in all, it was a very satisfying day! Thank you everyone who came, you made it so fun!

Some farm photos.
As we get deep into Autumn, and almost to Winter.
So you can see a little bit of what has happened this summer.
The B&B is still open, and we have been pretty busy.
Some new ideas are in the works, and we have bikes for guests now, it's so exciting! Photos soon, of those.

Breakfast in May

This delicious breakfast includes strawberry-rhubarb pie from Bluebird bakery and the omelettes have yummy local cheese from the SNO farm, called "Tiara", fresh eggs from our hens and freshly ground, organic fair-trade coffee in the French press.  I Love making breakfast!

Sunny day

The crocus are out and so thankfully the rest of the flowers will not be far behind. Busy lambing and spring cleaning. I love this time of year, to stretch out the muscles that got to take it a bit easier all winter. Here is a sweet comment from our guests last weekend. Thanks a bunch for coming!

"Hi Jennifer! Thank you so much for your hospitality :) we really enjoyed our stay last night! Sorry we forgot to sign the guest book. Pregnancy brain I suppose! Lol

Anyhow, I'd love the mango rice recipe and the muffin recipe if you're willing to share. I can't stop thinking about how yummy everything was :)

Looking forward to our next visit!"

Give us a call!

Blue sky and snow

The weather lately has been either blue sky or snow, or both! Tons of fun, since it's getting warmer and that is nice for the farm chores.  We have many openings for reservations, so if you are planning a trip give us a call! 607-659-5630.

Did you know?

Did you know that we use non-chemical, sweet smelling, Mrs.Myers cleaners at our cottage? We love how it smells, and no headaches after cleaning.  Although the cabin has always been cleaned with natural cleaners it's never been such a pleasure.
