I didn't know exactly where to post this but thought I'd share the website for the Hermitage of the Holy Cross in Wayne, West Virginia. http://www.holycross-hermitage.com/ Holy Cross is an Orthodox mens monastery in the Russian Orthodox Church tradition. They have great photos of their monastery farm including their chickens, Nubian goats, gardens and bees. Go to the link for Photos and scroll down - there are several photo galleries of farm photos through the years. You'll love the gallery Farm 2010 with the chickens - one of the brothers is gathering eggs with the hens jumping out of the nest box. (Not a plug for their products but I've used their goats' milk soap and hand lotion and they're wonderful - I'd never tried goats milk products before but am convinced goats milk makes the best hand lotions. Another reason I want goats after I get my chicken coop finished.) Like most Orthodox monastic communities, at least the ones I know in the US, a productive farm is an essential part of the monastery, both for use by the monks or nuns and for outside sales of baked goods, soaps, beeswax candles, or even icon painting. In traditional iconography, egg yolks are used as a base for the paints. Hope y'all enjoy.
