Living on a farm often means that things get very dirty. Our dogs are no exception and in an effort to minimize the amount of ‘farm’ they bring into the house, we set out to build an easy-to-use washing station. In this blog we will show you how to build your own dog grooming station.

fruit orchard


Fruit trees take some time to start producing fruit, so if you’re buying saplings from a garden store- keep in mind that these trees are probably 1-2 years old. Once you’ve transplanted your saplings into the ground at home, you can expect fruit after about two years, or more depending on the type of fruit.
