My life on the farm!
I'm sure you guys love the ever changing climate of my life just as much as I do. I now live on a BIRD FARM!! What are the odds?? So I'm back in Florida and helping out my mom on her farm. Here she raises all types of chickens and most importantly PEACOCKS! The birds are beautiful and have personalities all their own. Believe me, these birds are almost like dogs, they either like you or they don't. It's a pretty interesting place to be.
There has been a serious adjustment period for me. It has taken me a week to just get over the fact that I'm here. I made a choice as a responsible daughter to come down to help my mom out because she is not in the best of health and if you allow it, a farm will grow out of control. There is lots to be organized here and bunch of birds to send to new homes because we must downsize here.
THE MAIN GOAL??
My mom began growing this bird farm with the intention of making it a hands on educational place for children. She has had many of her clients take great interest in the farm and children love to come experience something and be hands on with animals they would normally never be able to touch. We do have a state recognized name under a non-profit organization here- The full title- Cielo Heritage Poultry and Peafowl Farm Incorporated. We are particularly focusing on the heritage chickens that are on the endangered list. The heritage chickens we have will be show quality so that we have the best stock of birds and the children that participate in 4-H are able to have a quality bird and be well educated on the type of bird they have.
As things progress here I hope be able to give you updates along with pictures and video.
Anything you want to see specifically??
P.S. I do have a farm shoot coming up. I'm gonna be creative with this on, bikini and muck boots!!
