Need a supply of grassfed, organic beef, pork and free-range chicken? Herondale Farm in Ancramdale is your source! I visited there a few days ago and got a tour of the operation - from the fuzzy baby chicks under warming lights, to the older chicks in protective pens, to the adults scrabbling around in the grass to, yes, the slaughtering room!
I am sorry this blog has been inconsistent lately. The supply chain for a daily photoblog is long and can break down anywhere along the line: one goes out and takes pictures, uploads them to the computer, looks through them to choose and photo-edit the best (trying to avoid children, pets and flowers, which make up a large portion of my daily photographic output!), loads those to Flickr, and then blogs the best one for the day. This past week was a tough one, but perhaps next week will be better!
