In 2013 we bought 14 acres of land in western Massachusetts. It had woods, a brook, a fenced pasture, a corral, a small barn, and five beautiful sugar maple trees. Before long we added goats, chickens, ducks and turkeys to our family of five children. We also put in a garden and started making maple syrup. We now have our own backyard farm. We learn something new every day and are happy to share our adventures.
