The biggest news since September is that my wonderful husband David , the cute guy on the left in the photo below, has retired. He is now working with me at GlennArt Farm: he mentors kids, helps with chores, and generally keeps us on track.
The other man in the photo is Marcus Bruschini. We invite international students to live with us. Many come and go during the year, more than 30 students. This summer and into the fall, we had the privilege of including Marcus who comes from Brazil. Marcus has a degree in animal husbandry and works with the poultry industry in Brazil to produce quality chicken feed. He LOVED the farm, helping us daily. He also provided us with advise on our chicken feeding system. Instead of scattering, we now have both a water system and a chicken feeder. The new feeder has shown a definite decrease in little sparrows eating our feed, and an easier feeding system.
More notes are coming. Please stay tuned!
