On October 1st Mary-Jean and I tied the knot on the farm. The day started out like a normal day with having to get ready for the farmers market. Nick went down to market and I stayed to help with wedding set up. I then went to slip into my wedding suit, new black carhartts, fancy white shirt, new vasque kicks, and thin striped suspenders. I worked the farm store from 1-3 in my elegant casual suit and was happy to see some of our customers on our special day. The ceremony was to start at 4 and I was naturally starting to get nervous. I don't function well when I know a lot of people are watching me. Luckily for me my neighborhood pals showed up with a little bit of dutch courage. I walked down to our chapel in the hemlocks, overlooking an open forest with bubbling creek below. An enormous stone wall and colonial era wagon trail above, in a circle of old growth hemlock, with a wall of white washed windows behind us, with 100 people watching, I was married Native American style to my soul mate in the most perfect ceremony in the most perfect place. The rest of the night was filled with good food and fun. At one point late in the night I found myself running through a tunnel of sparklers with my bride while everyone cheered us on. I had harvested a hog earlier in the week for use that night. The roasted ham and the ribs that our caterer helped butcher and cook were to live for. Whatever seasonings he used were just so it would bring out the flavor of the place. 

Thats the news from Cranberry Creek Farm. Come and find us on Saturdays from 1-5 in our farm store, or in town at the monroe market from 8-12 on the same day.

Dairy Goats

We have been raising quality registered Alpine Dairy Goats since 2011. Many of our does are directly related to top 10 milkers. We graze our goats on rotated pastures and woods. They receive a non-GMO grain at milking time and they also have free choice access to 12 different mineral supplements every day. In the winter they eat hay made on our farm or close by, and non-GMO grains.
