A new year...

We've just starting bottling the harvest from last fall. It's going to be a very delicious year for everyone who enjoys hard cider! Crisp and slightly effervescent, it is the perfect accompaniment to our local cheese. Today's special treat is some of Marin French Cheese...young brie (also known as "breakfast cheese!")

We've been enjoying strolling through the orchard with the chickens. There's something so wonderful about seeing the joy that chickens have in exploring for bugs!

This year is one to conserve water...with the ongoing drought, using a probe to test moisture at the roots, we'll be carefully making sure that every drop of water will be really needed by the trees before turning on the drip system. Cheers!
