Happy New Year! 2018-2019
Happy New Year! This year's farm focus was the pond filter. Thank you, mom! (aka Laura Victor van Gorder), for providing the filter for the pond. The water is amazingly clear now, as you can see : ) Ups and Downs on the farm: Obviously the pond filter was the biggest highlight. But additionally, Heather grew a tomato bigger than [...]
Supermoon Blood Eclipse – 2018
What a spectacular morning! The super blue blood moon setting into the starry west, Totoro the Owl and his lady calling back and forth, shooting stars, low fog gathered down in the creek, and a very noisy flock of ducks and goose to go with sunrise…

Out Of The Box
Just a day in the life of ducklings and goslings. This is their 2nd time “out of the box”, exploring on their own.
Hey! Come back here!
This is so cute. This was one of the first times the ducklings and goslings were “out” in the brave new world, exploring and biting everything, unfettered by walls and rules and…. Hey! Where are you going! Come back here!!!! DOH!!
And here we go again…
June is practically full summer here in California, so it always feels a little late to be raising new peeps starting in June. But by June we’ve usually gotten through most of the mowing, weeding, and planting that makes early spring so hectic (usually). Here are the new little members of our flock, balls of fluff so cute and noisy […]
Two Month Ducks
Here’s what happens when you blink and two months go by: “who am I?” “yeah, I could get used to this ‘water’ stuff” “Ta Da! We’re Ducks!” (captions by peter)
I’m getting ready & inspired for the coming harvest season. So many new ideas bubbling forth and sparks of creativity coming through. I’ve been loving Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers for inspiration.
Caption Contest ~ April
Here’s how it works: We post a Moon Acre photo from the month, you write your caption for the photo in the comments (get wild & crazy but appropriate for young eyes), after 2 weeks the Moon Acre crew will vote on our favorite caption! Ready, set, Go!
6:30 AM the morning after Easter the phone rings and wakes me out of deep sleep. Panic & annoyance until I remember what day it is. It’s duckling day! The most exciting day of the year. I kiss my sleeping partner (who will be roused for no less than a zombie apocalypse at this hour), pull on jeans […]
