The name Chickadee Farms

came from a day sitting and observing my farm. The birds are constant companions during days in the field. They find delicious insects to eat in freshly turned soil, we see them building their nests in the spring and watch them eat birdseed in the winter. A favorite past time of our daughter Jude is watching the birds and trying to identify them in our favorite bird book.

A small flock of chickadees were hopping and flitting around a few feet in front of me. The simple beauty of these birds struck me. I was reminded of the wonder in every day things when you really look at them.

The little energetic chickadees made me think of what farming had taught me about the world. Farming allows me to observe so many interesting things in nature. These birds were so small yet very resilient, energetic and travel with a community of other bchickadee-farm-webirds.

These traits we hope to exhibit in our farm. Small, yet resilient, energetic within our community. We are a small farm with big heart!
