Something to Brood About

Something to Brood About

Over 50 chickens to bring you fresh eggs daily Over the Fall, Winter and Spring we’ve been busy raising a variety of fifty new chickens including Brown and White Leghorn’s, Red and Black Sexlink or “Stars” as they are commonly called, Golden laced Wyandotte’s, Well Summer’s, Cuckoo Marin’s, Dominique’s and Russian Orloff’s. This variety of birds will provide farm fresh eggs to the inn and restaurant daily. Our new Amish built chicken coop is quite the looker and the hens are already producing as many as forty eggs a day and the number is steadily climbing. In addition to our chickens, we have two brand new kids to add to our growing family. You can click here to meet Ava and Zsa Zsa. Click on picture to start slide show Share with a...
Meet the Kids

Meet the Kids

  Welcome Ava and Zsa Zsa! Please meet Ava and Zsa Zsa, our twin Saanen goats.  The Saanen breed is named after the Saanen Valley in Switzerland and they are known as the most popular dairy goat breed due to their high productivity and mild manners. Kell and I got them at just four hours old and we bottle-fed them as long as was necessary. As you can see, neither of us had any objections to doing so – quite the contrary!  They continue to grow and their individual personalities are also growing with them – quite the cute kids.  Some of our guests have even leashed walked them around the property so they can add variety to their daily buffet. Aside from their delightful presence and amazing ability to kept things tidy by grazing, these adorable goats will be producing cheese for our guests by this time next year.

Perfect Day – Perfect Wedding

Perfect Day – Perfect Wedding

Perfect Day – Perfect Wedding What a spectacular weekend for a June wedding. From the Rehearsal Dinner and Welcome Reception to the Wedding and the Farewell Brunch, everything was simply lovely. The temperature was a perfect 75 degrees with a slight breeze and everyone was having a great time. A crisp cranberry lime emulsion and house made white sangria flowed during the garden ceremony and cocktail reception and the pan seared hazelnut encrusted Halibut and Filet Mignon with burgundy wine demi-glace were all a big hit. The band played and everyone danced their way into the moonlit evening. As you can see, the bride was beautiful ad the setting, flowers and bridal party were all beautifully photographed by our own Jonathan Ralston.   Click on picture to start slide show Share with a...
