The Swing of Spring

Spring is in full swing here. The garden is being finished this weekend. The container gardens are already sprouting. The daisies and iris are in full bloom. The chicks are big enough to move outside to their Chicken Tractor that hubby is finishing today. Will post pictures later. The horses have completely shed their winter coats and a beautifully sleek and shine in the sun as they graze this morning. I have even found time to work on some new recipes which I will post this evening. Off to enjoy the beautiful Missouri weather!

Week 1

This week we have finally gotten all of our chicks. We have 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Brown Leghorns, 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes, and 2 Ameraucanas. They are growing fast. We look forward to the eggs and companionship of these great hens. We are also finishing putting in the garden. I will update soon on what the official garden inventory is.

The Beginning

This blog will feature the happenings of Cloverfield Farm. A small hobby farm in eastern Missouri that is working towards self-sustainability and developing a top-notch Irish Draught Horse breeding program. Follow me and my family's journey to our dreams as I share me experiences and tips along the way.
