I was out visiting the donkeys tonight. The light was lovely so I tried to take some photos. As usual, I got about a dozen super close-ups of donkey ears, donkey eyes, and a horse nose. Every time I pull out the phone to take a photo lately, they walk up to see what I'm doing. I did, however, get this interesting one with a horse head shadow on Meadow.

Johnny Crisson is a North Georgia medicinal herb grower who has been attending our workshops and conferences for years. This is his first year selling ginseng rootlets and goldenseal rhizomes. I am excited for him and his new business and he always says what a great resource our book Growing and Marketing Ginseng, Goldenseal, and Other Woodland Medicinals is. So, we have teamed up together to offer special deals on ginseng rootlets + a book or goldenseal rhizomes + a book. Read more about these specials by clicking on the appropriate tabs above.

I always feel an immense sense of relief when we get the hay put up for the winter. Last year the hay was awful; we had to do a lot of supplemental feeding to keep the weight on the animals, and we didn't do that well for the older horse. So it is wonderful to have good quality hay stacked up and ready to go.
One of you asked for a close-up of Chester, so here you go. He is an adorable chocolate mini-donkey with a kinked little tail, a pot belly, and the biggest most expressive brown eyes I have ever seen. You can't help but to give this little guy a hug...which he likes very much.
Another one of you asked for a picture of the portable shelter we have for our steers. So here it is. As you can see, it is on skids. On the other end, there is a strap that we hook right up to the tractor and tow the shelter wherever we want it. The steers use it all the time all year long.
This was just a pretty day on the farm this summer so I took a shot of the barn with the mountains in the background. We are so blessed to live in this beautiful area.
Poppy settled into this giant mixing bowl on the computer hutch (it has been there for years, she just discovered it). It is now one of her favorite places to sleep. Cute.
These are beautiful sirloin roasts from our pasture raised Black Angus cattle. After a long slow roast in the oven, they made for a number of delicious meals.
One of the great delights of living on a small farm is all the fresh food on hand to create tasty meals, like this one.

They also have some two year old rootlets available. If you are interested in the two year olds, please indicate in the note section of the Paypal form if you want all or some of those in your order. As long as they are available, they will be shipped to you, otherwise, you will get one year olds.

High Valley suggests you have the plants delivered to where you can be sure to pick them up right away so they don't lose quality from staying in the packaging too long.

Each company retains responsibility for their own products and any questions or concerns should be directed to the relevant company.
This is a limited time offer and will be discontinued when High Valley Ginseng & Herb informs me that they can no longer ship roots.
