New milk availability for 2017: We may try placing additional quarts of fresh milk in the well, as Certified Organic by MOFGA for Animal (Guinea Hog) Consumption. We will date the lids; $5 .50 and a clean quart jar can be left in exchange for each quart. (Milk through Shares described above is more affordable.)
Sign up in for Goat Lease Dairy Shares in Comment Box below, or call 338-3301.
Woodland Medicines are custom harvested on our daily browse walks, preferably accompanied by the person seeking the medicine. Turkey Tail fungi, Usnea lichen, Witch Hazel leaves, Gold Thread plants with roots, Baneberry roots, Club moss, Balsam Poplar buds, White Birch inner bark, Yellow Birch bark and leaves, Japanese Knotweed leaves, Hemlock needles, and Cedar fronds are some of the offerings. Additionally, wild gardens provide Evening Primrose seed, St. John's Wort whole herb or seed to plant, Motherwort, Nettles and varied visiting plants.
|Hazel in Witch Hazel|
We have Pear, Apple, Japanese Heartnut, Black Walnut, Shagbark Hickory, Burr Oak, Yellow Birch, Bass- wood, White Ash, Red Oak, Witch Hazel, Cedar, Black Spruce, White Pine seedlings.
We have Muscovy ducks, thanks to Nick Jackson in Belmont. Welcome back to the area, Nick and Sarah! The Muskovies are getting along fine with our geese, and hatchlings are due in sync with the other brooding fowl, in May.
Instruction is included; I encourage everyone to learn how to tend trees. We have worthy old orchards throughout Waldo County to prune, plus need to plant young Standards as these old trees were planted by our great grandparents.
I also offer Fodder Tree Development, Research, And Fascination (obsession?), which started in 2010. Look up Shana Hanson, Primitive Skills, Tree Pollarding, and also YouTube, Shana Hanson.
|Bunchberry, a big buck|
|Smaller Kraut needed a second zipper.|
Weaning Bras zip wide open for milking ease. These have proven useful for a self-nurser off farm, and for establishing bottle feeding at birth on 3 Streams Farm, where does and kids live outdoors together. These bras will need adjustment and repair if used with an experienced nursing kid. Bottle feeding allows instant weaning later without separation.
A Day Pack has been added to our collection, for carrying hot cider when we (goats, sow and farmer) escort you through our woods to find...
your dream Solstice Tree at the tippy top of a tall fir. I am cutting tall firs to create sun pockets, for "Air Meadow" regeneration of fodder from lowered tree canopies.
Mostly Wooden Farm-made Hardware can be custom-built to order.
|A pack with 3 half-gallons of milk|
Cashmere from Hazel especially is available in small quantity.
3 Streams Farm is the home base for Belfast Blueberry Cooperative, a fresh market organic wild harvest crew. In August, we take orders for table quality berries in flats of 15 qts., (about 24 lbs.).
