package from Maine's Achorn Farm


I received a nice package this morning from Kim at Achorn Farm. I got real lucky and won her GiveAway. Everything in the box, if not from their farm, was made in Maine - dog treats (Brawn, Bliss, and Henry are barking a big thank you), scrubber pad, lavender soap, Herbal Popcorn (that won't make it through the night), garlic from the garden, and the crème de la crème "Liquid Gold" maple syrup tapped from their trees, be sure to read that link. I didn't know if the GiveAway winner would get some of the syrup but I sorta hinted that I'd like to receive something good to eat.

Tonight for supper, I made some french toast using some of our fresh eggs and goats milk, then I gently topped it with the Liquid Gold, oh my people. Mike was eating it and I was hearing ummm, awwww. I had to just make myself STOP eating. Kim, you were too generous but we appreciate it from the bottom of our stomachs.

I don't know what to comment on first. Those way too adorable babies or the food!

Okay, cutie pies first. I bet you smile ear to ear everytime you see those babies. On top of them being cute, their playing and antics must keep you in stitches!

Now for the food. Mmmmm, food is good! REAL maple syrup. Yum! Nothing better than the real deal when it comes food. Farm fresh eggs. Farm fresh milk. Farm fresh syrup. Okay, I'm hungry now. :)

Arent kids just the greatest? I am always amazed that they hop on their moms like she is a rock. And the moms just tolerate it.
From our blog you asked the breed of goat that Sue was holding. From that pic Ruthy does look like a Tog. She is really a full Alpine. She has wattles. I love wattles!

Wow! You hit the jackpot. Yummo! I love maple syrup. And how special that it came from their own trees, too.

The babies look so tiny up against that rake! :)
