    Hello all! I have been lerking for a bit now and decided it was time to introduce myself. We live on a beautiful small farm on a historic property in maryland. Right now we raise Alpaca chickens and Pocket Beagles. We plan to expand to turkeys,ducks,quail and possibly woodland raised pork this year. Our goal is to convert all aspects of the farm to sustainable practices. We have a large veggie garden and are passionate about saving herritage breeds and with our furred,feathered and fleeced friends improving our soil and creating a compleate and balanced ecosystem for all who live here on the farm. I am a musician/ vocalist, a writer and chef. Everyone here on the farm is an artist of some kind! The love of my life is a composer, guitarist and master Luthier. His mother is a fiber artist and Art teacher. We all work together to keep this dream alive. I'm looking forward to learning more about you all and all your wonderful advice. What a great resource for us with less experiance!
