Hatching A Plot

I've moved my postings over to a blog called Hatching A Plot. This blog chronicles our new life in Vermont, where we are continuing to learn to garden, preserve, make charcuterie and homebrew and hopefully get some animals. Below are some recent posts:

farming

Over the past few years we've been researching farming, goats, cheese, gardening and livestock. This section is devoted to discussing that process and sharing resources we've found along the way. Now that we've found our land, we hope to start putting more ideas into practice and see what works for us.

If you are interested in similar topics, this section has a lot of great resources and books that we've found along the way in the areas of cheese, goats, poultry, animals, gardening, preserving and brewing.
