February,…What’s New On The Farm!

Winter may not be over yet, but we can feel Spring is around the corner. Even though February didn’t have very cold temperatures, we still had some snowstorms and freezing rain. Here are some pictures of the farm after a snowstorm: the wind pushed the snow and designed small waves on it.On the driveway you can see that we had about 20cm (8″) of snow fall that night. The snowblower has not yet past and the dogs are still enjoying running in the snow.

Here is a picture of our tree, after a frosty morning.

I couldn’t resist showing you our cat Felix watching his favourite TV show next to my desk. Every morning he stands on the window watching birds eating seeds at their feeder.

What is more beautiful than a sunrise? Perhaps a gorgeous sunset?!
We are so lucky, in the winter there are such beautiful colors at these 2 times of day.

In the barn, our expectant moms are doing well. We can already see some will have twins. The kidding (birthing) period should start end of March.

Our little ones are also fine.

I’ve made the most of the milder weather. Each warm day, I go outside (on our porch) and dye more yarns. I already dyed some green, blue and burgundy. I’ll be dyeing more yarn this week.

I am planning to offer yarns in new ways,so you can look for new products on our website soon! But I want it to be a surprise so I won’t say another word for now !!

These new products will also be available at our next show, Peterborough’s Fibre Arts Festival & Sale, which will take place on March 17th. We are very happy to be participating in this event ( a new one for us) and look forward to meeting new people.

That’s the news for February!

We wish everyone an early Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
And also wish you a happy beginning of Spring (or Autumn to our readers in the southern hemisphere), and look forward to bringing you another update at the end of March!

  1. Bonjour!
    Aujourd’hui, premières giboulées à Oka…….j’aime beaucoup recevoir vos bulletins mensuels. Les photos sont magnifiques et vos bêtes sont traitées aux petits oignons. J’ai hâte de voir les images de vos futurs chevreaux.

    Participerez vous au Twist festival de St-André en 2018? Si oui, j’irai vous rendre visite. Je sais que la vie d’éleveur et de fermier est difficile, mais je vous envie……
    Gardez vous au chaud et au plaisir de vous rencontrer un jour

    • Bonjour Sylvie,
      Merci pour votre très gentil commentaire. Nous essayons au mieux de partager nos moments sur la ferme. Il me tarde aussi d’avoir nos nouveaux chevreaux. Les mamans vont être bien occupées.
      Nous n irons pas à Twist cette année. Mais si un jour, vous passez proche de la ferme, n hésitez pas à téléphoner pour prendre un rendez-vous et vous pourriez voir la ferme et les animaux en vrai.
      Encore merci pour votre fidélité.

    • Thank you Ron for your kind comment. We try our best to share our life on the farm. Like you, I love seeing snow sculptures made by the wind: each time this is different. You never know in advance what Mother Nature has in mind!!
      Thank you for following us for such a long time 🙂 Have a good day,
      Isabelle
