Episode 25 - 2017...A Year in the Rear View - with special guest!

2017 was a crazy year for Fiberton...we moved 5 sheep, 4 rabbits, 2 cats, a dog and 2 humans across the country to re-establish farm life in our old home of San Miguel, California. We had some happy times, and some some sad, too. We share these in this episode along with our special guest from Rio Salinas Ranch, Miranda! Then we talk about some goals for the new year, and encourage all our listeners to do the same!

Episode 24 - Crispy or Brittle? (AKA - Part 1 of Preserving Foods)

Check out this first part of our food preservation series and help us answer the age old question... crispy or brittle?
