God's Country Upland Preserve


A new venture is underway at Fitzgerald's Family Farm.  It is God's Country Upland Preserve - an upland game hunting preserve located right here in Potter County.  We now have pens filled with pheasants and chukars in anticipation of fall hunts.  


You can find more information about God's Country Upland Preserve at https://www.gcupreserve.com and on Facebook here.

I've Been Away - Foodie Photos


In September, I took a two week trip to Europe.  My daughter, in the Air Force, met me in Frankfurt and she and I flew to Budapest... after time in Budapest we flew back to Frankfurt and then went to the Bad Durkheim Wurst Festival (listed as the largest wine festival in the world!), after that, my dear daughter had to go back to work and I went on to Berlin.  

I believe that most people who look at farming blogs tend to be "foodies."  So here are some lovely pictures of food!
























I hope you've enjoyed this little "bite" of my trip!

Project Of The Day: Tack Room Addition


We had this room added onto the end of our barn awhile ago and I've been waiting to get a door cut through from the main barn and a floor and door added.  

Yesterday, Amish workers came and got the job done.




My son asked me if this was my new "she shed".  I guess it is... albeit still quite rustic!

Project Of The Day: Harvest Onions And What Is This?


Onions have been harvested.  I'll let them cure for a couple of days and the braid them and put them in the basement.  This is Copra onions - a storage onion. 



On my walks I see this strange growth on this dead hemlock.  It's rock hard and I wonder what it is.  I always think it kind of looks like some sort of french pastry...




Does anyone know what it is?

Sunday: A Day Of Rest, Relaxation And...



... a nice long, leisurely walk with Anna Belle and Ladybird.
