Focaccia - yummm!

This past summer, my friend Sid and I sold focaccia, eggs, and goat milk soap at the Farmer's market in Isle, MN. It's a really great little farmer's market with a friendly atmosphere. I would bring my wheel and spin between customers. Spinning always garners interest from the crowd. We were usually sold out of focaccia way before the end of market hours. Sid is a great cook and comes up with some great combos for toppings (wild rice & cheddar, red onion & rosemary, garlic & mozzerella, to name a few). The best part is, focaccia goes with just about anything.

We will be selling handmade artisan focaccia again tomorrow, Nov. 22nd, at Barb Dreyer Studio's 15th Annual Open house, from 10 a.m.  to 4 p.m. The address is 6916 Canary RD, Grasston, MN.
Barb will have her award winning pottery for sale along with other locally made beverages and edibles.  Stop by if you get a chance!

Back to Winter Already

We got about a foot of snow the other day, so it's back to plowing and shoveling and all the other jobs that come with winter weather. Blah!
I've got two pens of breeding sheep and a pen of bachelor boys to feed twice a day.  
Part of the Shetland breeding group.

Some of the Bluefaced Leicester/Teeswater breeding group.
Also 27 ducks and 16 chickens...
It's good to get outside and breathe the fresh air, I'm not complaining about animal care. I just really don't look forward to another bout of shoveling and hauling wood, seems like summer and fall went by way too fast.
The good part of this weather change is that now I have some indoor time to update my blog. I'm also changing my old River Oaks Sales blog into Rebecca Utecht Art. I love to share the news about my animals, but I also need a place to focus on my art work. I'm currently in the process of adding photos, etc. So please be patient as I get it all together.
I hope everyone is warm and all my friends' sheep flocks are busy making new little lambs for spring. Which is sure come again someday. :-)

Spring and Summer Classes 2024

  Well, it's April and the sheep have been sheared.  The chicks have arrived in the mail and Easter is behind us already.  Time to start...
