TheWalledGarden

The Walled Garden is an organic farm of twenty+ years. I've grown up here. I have geese, ducks, chickens, donkeys, goats, dogs, cats, I love them all!

Time to get busy with hot water buckets. I love love the cold weather, but it does bring with it more work! #busyfarm#morechores#haulinghotwater#wewillgetthere#winterchores#ohwell#illjustfreezealittle

Goodbye Cody. Will always love you and think of you! It doesn’t matter how few or many animals one has. Losing one is always painful. Cody has been deteriorating for quite some time now, and I’m just glad for all the extra time we’ve had with him. Hopefully now all the aches and pains of old age are no longer there, and he can do everything he loves, not limited to playing in water, having other dogs around, and quiet naps.

Dear Momo. She still strongly considers herself to be a duck. All her siblings died and her mother rejected her, so we raised her, and upon being introduced to the flock, she adored the geese and ducks and follows them everywhere! It’s adorable! Thankfully she’s starting to be around the chickens more often😂 #momo#mistakenidentity#shesreallynotsure#figuringitout#wewillgetthere

It’s always amazing to me that after fifteen years of living on this farm, is still find things I didn’t know were there! This cabinet is in one of the older barns and apparently we use it to store random machinery parts. Anyway it’s always fun living on an old dairy farm and finding new things! #discovery#didntknowthat#thatskindacool#dairyfarm#olddairyfarm#ahwell#thewalledgarden

Just rescued Kumquat officially on July Fourth. Am officially too attached and was convinced to make a separate account for him. @kumquattheteacupkitty is the account. If you want to see his recovery journey, follow it, he’s severely malnourished and is too old to be so small. Only 1 1/2 pounds and should be 5. Let’s get this recovery started!!🐾🐾 #rescuedkitten#newaccount#thankyouall#loveyou

These are some teenage ducklings that hatched earlier this year. They have to be Blue Swedish/Cayuga crosses, based on their coloring and the drakes most present, but a lot of them have a lot more white than normal, there’s five total, and two have adorable floofs on their heads! No idea where that comes from, genetics wise, but I’m not complaining! #duck#ducklings#unusualcolor#geneticsarecrazy#whoknows#ilovethem#cayuga#blueswedish#unknownparentage#barnyard#farmyard#farmlife#rurallife#katrinasbarnyard#thewalledgarden
