Critters on the Farm

Critters on the Farm

You will enjoy these pictures.  I, the Sandman, have spoken.
Our farm is primarily a horticultural operation (vegetables), but we also raise chickens and turkeys for meat.  There is a laying hen flock for eggs and we raised ducks at one time.  In addition to the poultry, we have a number of farm supervisors (cats) who make sure the humans are doing what they are supposed to be doing (paying attention to them).

Don't tell the Sandman we put a baby picture on here.

We like our Garter snakes...just not when they are in the bathroom
