Life is Good!

Kayaking Cowpasture River

With the season slowing its pace I’m taking advantage of every free minute to bask in the river. I’m going to miss the outstanding scenery at Buxton Farm. Especially the river.

I’ve been finding so much joy in my early evening kayaking adventures. The wildlife on these river trips is abundant which I deeply appreciate.  The tranquil setting is breathtakingly  peaceful. Sometimes I feel like I’ve died and gone to heaven out here in this magnificent landscape.  It really doesn’t get much better than this! Or maybe it does?

Very happy woman in yellow kayak!

Jake worked with us for a month and he’s been fantastic! His perspective about processing chickens has shifted since his first day when he was a bit uncertain. Now that he’s witnessed the whole cycle of poultry from birth to death in a healthy setting, he’s much more comfortable in this system. I think I can say his attitude about taking life to feed himself is better understood and most definitely now appreciated. I’m pleased we get to offer these kind of lessons. That’s a success!

We’ve enjoyed his contribution. We’re really amazed at the wonderful young people who wish to farm. They have invincible spirits.

Hope to see him down the good food sustainable road in the future. He will make one heck of farmer!

    What an enjoyable way to spend evenings! Our creek isn’t big enough to Kayak in but I enjoy a barefoot stroll down it!
