On to Our Next Adventure


“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 We’ve processed our last batch of broilers, moved the cows into their newest pasture and gathered our last few baskets of eggs.

Meet Moses


When we learned John would be managing Briarmoore, we agreed it might be handy to have a canine helper for the farm. But really, who needs an excuse to get a puppy?!

Version 2

Spring is calving season for us and it seems just about every day we stumble upon a cow licking the afterbirth from her new baby or supervising cautious first steps.

Winter hasn’t quite released us from her icy grip. Frequent freeze warnings and chilly mornings where our breath still hangs in front of us in the air keep us from packing away the few hats and coats remaining in our closets.
