Recent visitors to the Blue Hen Farmstay @ Bent Pine Farm got busy and created new signs for the animals. Mom and the kids painted the masterpieces and Dad added the hardware. Of course, the pigs and goats were thrilled and haven’t stopped talking about the new signage yet!
Homemade wine. Made from our own grown, fresh, organic fruit. No sulfites. We have made a lot of loquat wine, so recently thought we would try blueberries.
It takes about 3 weeks for the sugar to get gobbled up by the yeast. We were shooting for a very dry but full-bodied wine. Cabernet. So far so good. It’s 3 weeks old, and we’ll let it age another 6 weeks…maybe.
Jeremiah was a bullfrog,
was a good friend of mine.
I never understood a single word he said,
but I helped him drink his wine.
(And he always had some mighty fine wine.)

Still soil-building six years later. We have lots of positive things happening on the farm. Come and visit us at Bent Pine Farm in Dunnellon FL. We’d love to share our farm with you for a day…or a stay!
