We just got our first farm animals! 27 baby chicks arrived in the mail monday morning. To Annie’s dismay, I brought them up to the farm, while she has to wait till Wednesday to become better friends with them. Sarah, who was on chicken breed duty, ordered 5 Light Brahmas, 6 Barred Rock, 6 Buff Orpingtons, 6 Rhode Island Red and 3 Araucana. We also received a ‘Free Rare Exotic Chick.’ I don’t quite know what that is going to prove to mean, but boy am I excited to find out! Come see them while they are still young!

About Eli

SkyRoot Farm is located on the property of the SkyRoot community. The farm is run by farm partners Elizabeth Wheat, Arwen Norman and Anna Petersons. Care for the soil is at the heart of our sustainable farming practice. We believe that rather than 1 farmer for every 50 people we need 1 farmer for every 10 people. Summed up our philosophy on farming is: lots of farmers, working small farms, educating consumers, sustaining rural communities and consistently fine tuning integrated, sustainable food production.
