Painted Hand Farm is a 20 acre Civil War era farm located in Cumberland county, Pennsylvania. We raise meat goats, veal calves, turkeys and organic vegetables using humane and sustainable agricultural practices.
It's hard to believe twenty-oh-six is already here--seems like only yesterday that we were loading up the rig and heading east (in 2000). We've had Jessica back in our lives for just over a year now, too. The goat herd is growing, we've added a calf, (yes, Tibet is still here, but she's camera shy) and we've added another pasture. As a resolution, I'm going to try to keep the farm's blog better updated. There is lots coming up...PA State Farm Show, Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture's annual Farming for the Future Conference, kidding season, new laying hens and a fresh batch of turkeys. Stay tuned.
