Quit the corporate world to run a certified organic farm and Yellow Belly cidery. Never looked back.
These Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers are ready to fledge the nest. (A new batch of tap handles heading out into the market.)

Evidently she has forgotten that she’s blind.
It’s a groundbreaking day. Seriously...it’s the first day of construction of the new cider facility.

The new building has arrived!
Her first time working with honeybees and she handled it like a pro. High five to our WWOOFer Amelia!
Today we celebrate 4th of July by drilling a new well for the new cider production building soon to be constructed.
It’s a beautiful day to paint tap handles.
Watching the tornado warning from the porch. (But we have a fast and easy escape to the basement.)
