New products in our Farm Store ~

Spring seems to be arriving early here in the Northeast. Our snow is just about melted and even the mud is drying up quickly. I imagine we will see another snow storm or two but nothing that will stay for long. Fifty degree temps make it easy to work outside and spring work is underway. Our ewes have big bellies and lambs are due in the next week or two. Two more goats are due to kid any day now. Sarge & Beetle Bailey will be two weeks old tomorrow.

They will use anyone or anything for a jungle gym, including me :) I cherish the few minutes I can squeeze out each day to sit and play with them. I absolutely love my life on the farm and all that goes on here but I miss having time to enjoy each and every baby that comes along. Before long, these little goats will be out in population and playing with the big goats and won't pay any attention to me unless I have a snack in my pocket!

Good weather brings more customers into our Farm store weekly. Everyone agrees the warmer temps makes shopping a much more pleasant errand to do. We have new handcrafted items for sale that I haven't put on the website yet so thought I would share them here.

Horse shoes have always been in abundance around here, old and new and have added up quickly over the years. We now have several Western Art theme gifts in our shop.

Horse shoe lamps in two sizes. The first is made with pony size shoes, the lower lamp with saddle horse size shoes. Each lamp is handcrafted and no two lamps are exactly the same. All lamps come with a rust free finish and a no slip base.

I love the great business card holders and quickly made use of one on my counter in the store.


These make great gifts for the business person in your life. They hold approximately 40 cards at a time and stay where you put them.


And for a little fun, a horse shoe brain teaser. Yes, there is a way to get the silver ring off the chain in the center of the shoes :)

We have a dozen more ideas in this Western Art department and hope to have several more items in stock before too long. Stay tuned ~

Have a great sunday ~

Looks nice! I love the lamps, the hubby made lamps for the 4-group one year! He said it was no fun welding them though!

Would love to live closer so I could visit your little store! It sounds like it would be a nice experience. My brother makes horseshoe clocks and if you'd like to see a pic of one let me know. He uses the clock kits you get from Hobby stores, leather and a horseshoe.

I love the horseshoe/blacksmith iron puzzles. Some of them are real stumpers. I would have a lot of fun shopping in your store!

Those goats are adorable! I could just steal them for myself haha! Those lamps are so fun, I'll have to see if I can find something like that for our house.

I'm like you, I love the little ones and the big animals. I love living on the land and haveing the land be part of who I am.

I'm very glad your store is doing well.

We are still wet and raining and cold. Only getting to 41* This sure has been a long year.

Callie,
It would be great if you could visit!
I like the horseshoe puzzles too :)

Brandi,
Thanks for visiting! You would be hard pressed to get that little goats out of here :) We get so darn attached to them. I just love to cuddle them....
I'm very impressed with the lamps. If you can't find one, let me know.

Linda,
I'm sorry your having cold, rainy weather. I know you really need a drying spell so you can plant. It has been such a weird winter. It's balmy here and the snow is gone but I still don't believe spring is here yet!
Take care ~
