Here’s What’s Happening At Good Spirits Farm
Chris is on bird box duty. He’s built five new nesting boxes for Eastern bluebirds and has formed a “bluebird trail” around our property. Now we’re moving on to building boxes for tree swallows, which can eat 8,000 flies a day.

We’re doing a survey to get a feel for what folks want most from the farm (and, really, how to organize our time). If you think you might be interested in ordering mailable stuff from us (or if you’re a neighbor), we’d love to hear what you want!
