Jim and I own Grand Isle Art Works – you can find all of our Yellow Dog Farm products there. It is a great destination for a beautiful ride through the Lake Champlain Islands! Grand Isle Art Works features the art work of over 70 Vermont artists! Really spectacular! Currently the gallery is open Thursday – Sunday – more days as the weather gets warmer!
We have rain today – after a beautiful week full of sunshine. Our new solar panels are taking a breather. They have been scooping up sunshine for us non-stop!
Come on back, sunshine!
Finally a BIG snow storm!
It’s true. This week the weather has been glorious with temperatures reaching into the 70’s. No one is complaining – not Jim or I or our animals!
Oh – we have more animals – 8 alpacas have been added to our flock.
Bacca, Casper, Richard, Sapphron, Daisy, Tansy, Oreo, and Reese – we need to get name tags! They join Dorito, M&M and Telemark. Sadly we lost Dazzle a bit ago. We have LOTS of fiber!
Jim and I had a blast at the beCause Show at St Mike’s on March 14, 2015. Many thanks to the folks who put it together! We talked to lots of people and spread the word about Yellow Dog Farm and Grand Isle Art Works, of course! We made a donation to Champlain Islanders Developing Essential Resources (C.I.D.E.R.).
YELLOW DOG FARM will be donating to CIDER, INC. The very best non-profit group helping keep islanders’ in their homes!
