If you’ve ever ridden in the car with me, you probably know that I’m a bit of a public radio buff. I am a huge fan of VPR, and particularly of Brave Little State, which is a podcast about questions about quirky Vermont topics. Recently, a question I asked was featured on the program!
Matt and I spent a lot of time driving all around the northeastern part of Vermont on our search for a suitable farm to buy. We noticed Star Pudding Farm Road in Marshfield more than once, so I wanted to ask about it. Turns out that the answer brought a tear to my eye because sometimes it feels like my farming efforts are rewarded with dining on wind pudding.
Our other major media effort is a new children’s book about lambs growing up on our farm. April and May: Two Lambs at Cloverworks Farm tells the charming story of two lamb sisters who explore their surroundings, with educational commentary for adults to enjoy. The book is appropriate for pre-readers and early readers. Buy a copy through the link above, or come see us at the Craftsbury Farmer’s Market on Saturdays!
In other farm news, Mary Lake came to shear the lambs who aren’t slated for retention yesterday. We got over 50 pounds of top quality fiber, so I am debating whether to have roving made or whether to hold out for more yarn….what do you think?
