You may have noticed Harmony’s recent post on Facebook revealing the felted animals that a very talented local artist (Kristen Oberhauser Bishop) is making for us. These little felted animals are beautiful and amazingly crafted!! But there is a story behind each of them.
We believe very strongly that farming should not be separate from the natural world, but should be able to blend with the surrounding landscape and that includes minimal interruptions to our animal friends.
We started observing animals utilizing the farm in different ways and these animals turned into bedtime stories for the kids. Each night I would sit in their bedroom and tell them about the elaborate adventures of each of our 47 Daisies Farm Friends. Each of them have homes on the farm and each of them are now so intertwined with 47 Daisies land ethic that we wanted to share them with you.
There is a long list of friends and throughout the next few months we will share their stories with you. Here is the list of friends whose stories will be debuted shortly………stay tuned for the first story!!
Marigold (great blue heron)
Millie (baby deer)
Poky (porcupine) and now poky’s baby
Jimmy (garter snake)
Hopper (snowshoe hare)
Copper (snowshoe hare)
Peanut butter and jelly (crow)
I hope you will read them all and share our friend’s stories with your loved ones and children!!
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
