Where are we?

hi from WV


Hi, I'm Ellen. I'm in Berkeley Springs, not too far up the road from Winchester. I have a tiny farm, some sheep, mohair goats and chickens. I also have a small yarn shop, Pocket Meadow Farm Fiber Arts. My farm is called that, by the way, because it's so small you could slip it into your pocket and carry it around with you. I've knit for at least 40 years, spun for 15 for enjoyment, not perfection, and am a new weaver. Looking forward to meeting you all! Here is Babette, in the geraniums.

I have five hens and one rooster. They are Buff Brahma bantams, and most entertaining.

Chickens are great. Everybody should have them! There's no good reason that suburban zoning bans them (except for roosters, which could be annoying, though everyone I know who lives in the city/suburbs gets up as early as Jean-Pierre, my rooster. I'm a vegetarian, and I don't like eggs, but these little feather people are so good for fertilizing, cultivating the soil, etc, as well as comic relief.
