Tamworth Pigs Arrive at Stark Hollow Farm



Vanessa picked up six lovely Tamworth pigs to raise as feeder pigs this year. These are heritage breed pigs that will be rotated this year in wild woodland lots at HOWL.

Fiddlehead Fern Hunt Successful!

After a 40 minute walk through the woods along the edges of the pastures and along the streams and spring run off, I found a small cluster of fiddlehead ferns. I saw many types of ferns, but the ostrich fern is harder to come by. I asked the spirits of the land for guidance and this small gift was offered. I harvested only a few leaving many to grow. These will be cooked for dinner tonight with virgin olive oil, butter, garlic, and bacon from our pigs.



My next hunt will be for wild onions!
