Spring is for new beginnings; thus spring 2011 marks the beginning of our new blog.
We are the Meyerses. Our family consists of six crazy humans, four perpetually hungry dogs, six kooky cats, six nosy goats, and twenty-six curious chickens. The Great Bend Bakery Farm is our experiment in good old-fashioned north country living.
This is a beautiful area that can be enjoyed year-round. Maples, pines, and birches are plentiful. An assortment of spring flowers grow wild all around here, including daffodils, may apples, forget-me-nots, and trilliums. We also have a wonderful selection of edible wild plants, wild onions, asparagus, and fiddlehead ferns among them. A variety of wild animals inhabit these acres, including raccoon, whitetail deer, wild turkey, porcupine, and foxes.
We are trying to recapture this lifestyle on our little farmstead. Plans we have for our short-term and long-term future include putting in a pond, adding a boxed garden, raising pigs and ducks, and starting our own small vineyard. At the moment, we are happy to be involved in many hobbies, including milking our own goats, collecting chicken eggs, making baked goods, cheese, and sauerkraut, brewing beer and making wine, and making our own maple syrup.
We hope you will join us as we continue our foray into farming!
