Springtime is here and we at the farm are enjoying all of the new life! Baby goats and sheep, flowers, Lavender, calves and two new puppies. We wanted to give everyone a glimpse of the beauty we have been experiencing these past few weeks.
With the abundance of rain we received, at the end of winter, our Hydro plant facility is finally generating electric power! It had been two years, due to the drought in California, since we were able to operate the facility.
With that said, we at McFadden Farm hope you can take a moment from the busyness of life and enjoy these beautiful spring days and all it brings with the season.
