Visible Progress

Nearly 16 timberframemonths ago we salvaged a hemlock timber frame from a barn that was deconstructed a mile down the road. Now we’ve finally integrated it into our new barn structure, with many fine beams leftover that will be put to use when we eventually build our home.

We have also mowed and limed about 10 acres of the land in the process of restoring it to good pasture, and now we have 75 young turkeys helping to further improve the soil!
