Thank you to everyone who came to Toad Hole to help us get the farm ready for the cold weather! Even though summer has lingered wonderfully this year and it’s hard to believe we’ll be skating on the pond soon instead of swimming in it, we sure benefited from your strong arms and warm hearts cleaning chimneys, clearing trails, cutting wood, etc. A special thanks to our Australian woofers, Lara and Sarah, who almost single-handedly loaded up the woodshed for the winter while also making delicious suppers every evening – so yum!
Spring has finally arrived at Toad Hole Farm! We’ve already welcomed 2 new calves in the past month, and they were jumping and chasing each other around the barnyard today. The pastures are green, and all the cattle seem very happy to be out in the sun (as you can see from this picture we took this week).
We are looking forward to more WWOOFers from across Canada and around the world this summer! It’s been such fun to have them stay with us and learn more about their lives, as well as sharing some of ours. Last year, we had people from the Czech Republic, France, Germany and Canada stay with us.
We are now taking orders for pastured chicken, and we still have some beef left for those interested in stocking up for bbq season. Enjoy the light and warmth!
