Meet Buddy the Calf!

buddy1Buddy the calf is our newest addition. Buddy is just three days old and will be bottle fed for the next few months until he’s ready to eat hay. Today he arrived and met some of our barn family…sheep, chickens, and cats…

Watch Buddy’s first day

Buddy is just three days old and loves his bottle. One of our Handsome Brook Farm Bed and Breakfast guests is happy to help :-)

New baby pigs arrive!

pigs 2We just picked up our two new Tamworth (heritage breed) pigs for our farm stay at Handsome Brook Farm…As you can see from the photos, we had a couple 3 year old guests this weekend who helped to welcome the piglets to the farm. It is awesome to watch the pig grow up in an Eco-friendly sustainable environment, playing on pasture and interacting with the sheep, chickens, calf, and cats!

Mary had a Little Lamb…

We had a wonderful guest this weekend who would sing to Suzie our oldest ewe (sheep). People often ask us why we run a B&B at our farm…this video says it all!

Blueberries and Bees

Blueberries and bees 2013 1The blueberries are flowering…

We have an organic blueberry field with millions of flowers that have to be individually pollinated. We definitely need help! Our friends keep hives, and brought two out for us to “borrow” for a month. We now have 80,000 busy bees! The link below talks about all the wonderful health benefits of blueberries…not to mention all the fresh honey…Spring has arrived and our Catskill mountain farmstay Bed and Breakfast will have new baby pigs and a baby calf over the next few weeks…spring is an exciting time on the farm.
