If you follow this blog, then you’ve probably noticed that things look a bit different around here.
While it is true that the first and main reason we moved to Wisconsin and bought Bifrost Farms was to have a boarding kennel on the same property we lived on, it was equally important to have a place where we could strive to be sustainable and hopefully be able to provide for ourselves in retirement (which is really a euphemism for still working, just not for anyone else). As it has turned out, we are growing quite a diversified little farm here.
In addition to our highly recommended boarding kennel, we grow chemical-free, naturally grown hardneck garlic and one or two yet unknown crops which we hope to sell to co-ops, CSAs and restaurants. Most surprising has been our instant love of goats and Meg’s passion for cheesemaking. So much so that we have decided to add a micro-dairy and creamery to the mix as soon as Meg gets her Wisconsin Cheesemaker’s License and is ready to go commercial. Until then, there’s always an ‘experiment’ in the refrigerator or aging cooler and our little goat tribe keeps growing.
All of this is to say that you will be finding more and more diverse posts here. Although the look of the site has changed slightly, there will still be dog news and events posted, and don’t be surprised to see pictures of new baby goats, Meg’s latest cheese, or our field of 5000 garlic cloves we planted last year.
I guess dreams really can come true.
