    Hello there.
    I live in Colorado and enjoy living in the country. my husband John and I used to have a lot of chickens, geese and goats. we want to get back to raising them.

    Times got hard and we had to go work out of state and didn't have anyone to come take care of them. We are so anxious to get back to raising chickens and geese soon.

    We also have a fruit orchard which we planted upon moving here over 15 years ago. peaches, apples, pears, plums apricots. this past year was the best they ever produced.

    we hope to have a pick your own when we really get rolling and harvesting more fruit.
    Thank you for the forum to learn more about poultry and canning.

    I want to learn to make some good dill pickles

    Growing up in PA, I cherished the time my mother spent with me at a local apple orchard picking our own, and then making pies. Now that i live in CO, I would love to have a place like that here to share with my son. I hope you can open to the public soon!!
    And welcome to BYC
