The newly established Vermont Farm and Garden Exchange has been a wonderful source of information and opportunities to barter farm items, but most of all it has introduced me to extremely generous folks with interests similar to my own. Every locality should have such a dependable resource and connection to their community such as this, in my opinion. Being graciously offered the opportunity to contribute to their blog forum, I have written two posts, which I will reference (and provide links) here instead of repeating the information. The first was an introductory approach to making a soft cheese from fresh goat's milk entitled "Easy Home Cheesy" and the second, a cursory guide to processing acorns for human consumption named "Robbing Squirrels". I hope you will enjoy them both.
I have many posts to contribute to my own blog. At the moment, however, the time dedicated to actually tending a farm is keeping me off the computer, temporarily.
