This morning's snow had all but melted by early afternoon when we arrived at the farm.

The thaw made it mucky under foot - when isn't it muddy at the farm..? But undaunted we set about tending to some of the farm's residents.

First we visited the goats. To refresh their hay for snacking, and also to lay some bark chips around by the entrance to their pen, which was getting rather overrun with aforementioned mud.

Also we visited the chickens, whose home likewise needed some TLC. The weight of the snow had brought down the netting roof of their enclosure, and Meyrick and I set about removing the netting.

And then we adjouned to the farm's cafe for a nice cup of coffee and/or beverage of your choice.
