A Handmade Farm

I made a new friend last year and her name is Kim Bayer and she writes one of the most perceptive, wise and charming blogs in the area and she wrote a post about Frog Holler Farm last May when she visited the farm and we first really met. I never linked to the post then - got lost in the flurry that is May on the farm, I guess. The post was sucked down a cyber hole for a while, but Space Cadet Kim just retrieved it and now seems like a good time to complete the circle from Kim's blog to mine!

And I'm actually going to link it this time rather than mention her blog but not provide that oh so easy linking mechanism. (Assuming that my other blogger friend Joan taught me right! More on Joan later..) In the Hoophouse Memorial post of 1/26, I feature the photo that Kim took on that first visit and mention her blog, but don't facilitate a visit!

So here comes the magic link, and I will say that I like this post, not just because it is so kind to us at Frog Holler, but because Kim, as she so often does, takes the particular into the universal and reminds us how each choice we make, no matter how 'prosaic' ("what shall we eat for dinner?"), has meaning, but that those choices, no matter how ultimately weighty, can derive from a compassionate and optimistic appreciation of the earth's beauty and bounty and of the positive web of 'peer-to-peer' energy that lights our way. So here - meet Kim! (And read more of her blog besides just this post!) From The Farmer's Marketer blog: A Handmade Farm: Frog Holler Organic Farm

Cathy, Rebecca Thomason RN responding! We are working to have an eco-farm in the city of Ypsilanti. We have 37 chickens - Hubbard Isa Browns, 4 pregnant Dwarf Nigerian/Nubian goats and too many rabbits - new breed in USA - lionhead dwarfs all on 1/10th of an acre! So we never had time to share our wonderful stories with each other in October. If you have been involved with SlowFood you might know my daughter Aubrey.She works in the creamery at Zingermans. She has worked with them for 7 years. She has traveled extensively in Europe and Calif. exploring FOOD!! She has lived in Tuscany on the oldest organic farm [150 years]Spinnocchia.S also worked on the SlowFood conference while in Italy a few years ago. I have thought of you and Ken often and carried you in my heart. I do hope that all is well.I do look forward to hearing from you both especially knowing you are some of the pioneers that have plowed those first rows for us to follow in!
