My Sugar Mountain Farm Blog is where I write about the adventures of our family, farm, animals and life here in the little cottage in the big woods. Some stories are entertaining, some are about the beauty of our natural world here in Vermont. In others I share experiences we’ve had that may help other people with challenges homesteading and small farming. These are excerpts from our journey through life. Through the blog you can experience a virtual tour of our farm during all five seasons of the year extending back to 2005 and beyond.
As of April 2016 my blog reach the 5,000,000 visitor mark. There are over 2,500 articles from the past 11 years along with over 21,000 comments. Be sure to read the comments sections of articles as many questions are answered there as well as readers sharing their experiences. Feel free to comment on any article no matter how old – that is the beauty of the internet. I read all new comments and reply to questions.
Tip #2: Many pictures are clickable so that you can take a closer look as you visit. Try it on the mini image of my blog at right.
Tip #3: Check out the tag cloud and the favorite articles in the right sidebar.
On a historical note, here is my first blog post which was Welcome to Sugar Mountain Farm.
“Walter’s blog has been one of the most helpful and inspiring resources for us while we increase our pig numbers and build infrastructure. We have been consulting Walter for his experience in building catenary arches over his head in his house, and his shop, with the hopes that we can build our own thin-shell ceiling in our drying room.”
