Here is a link to an article from the NY Post that I placed at our Farm facebook page. It is a great read, and so true. (Only thing is, the chickens pictured and credited to Martha Stewart are not Barred Rock!)
Erin Bradt, 6th+ generation farmer, is co-owner with husband Ray and manager here at Helder~Herdwyck Farm. Located in the Helderberg Mountains of upstate New York, Erin also owns and manage The Wren's Nest, a fiber arts supply business she opened in 2002, which sells a variety of fiber arts equipment and supplies, and Erin teaches frame loom weaving and punch-needle rug making. A 2013 graduate of Holistic Management International's Beginning Women Farmers class and 2014 Annie's Project class, Erin oversees the holistic management and sustainable practices of her family farm. Her fondest endeavor is continuing the introduction of Herdwick sheep to the America's. A valuable breed to the future of agriculture.
