Go out and dazzle someone with your brilliance this weekend!

©, the kicked, scratched and generally beat up (when did that nasty green stuff get all over the front of my white tee shirt?) foodie farm blog where today we wrangled some sheep, and tomorrow we'll be wrangling a lot more.

The easy part is getting them out of the field. The best part is being done—and musing over all the things about the day that weren't so funny at the time, but are really good for laughs (and often make great stories) once you're out of the barn and soaking away your aches and pains in a nice hot whirlpool tub. Hard work may be rewarding, but a little pampering feels really, really good.


  1. Eeeee, they're so cute! ^.^ Glad SilverBeat shared your blog over in the Etsy forums.

  2. I think running sheep are so cute. I love opening the gate and seeing the girls come running to see if any apples fell while they were out grazing. Your Hunky guy fits right in there on the farm.

  3. YES! Nice hardworking, hunky farm guy! And the sheep are pretty cute, too!

  4. I expected to see a dog in the last picture, but no! I guess girls of all kinds appreciate a hunky farm guy.

  5. Sheep, donkeys and a hunky farm guy??? You are sooo lucky!

  6. Good job getting your sheep in. Looks they are not wasting any time getting in.

  7. Wow. And I thought raspberry bushes would be a lot to take care of. Luckily you have hunky farm guy to help you and it doesn't hurt that the sheep are cute too.

    Is the hunky guy carrying a shepherds staff in second picture? Love the critters

  9. I need a soak in a hot tub right now. After several hours in the saddle on saturday, everything hurts!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
