greener pastures


we had the most fun this weekend! our dear friends both work for sugarboo designs (read more here) and they were heading up to blairsville, ga for the weekend. they invited us to join them at sugarboo farms! the farm is still a work in progress and won't open until spring 2012, but it is already incredible! it will be an ideal setting for groups with a large communal barn and 15 individual cottages along the creek. there is a large garden and the fresh fruits and vegetables are used to make preserves, salsas, and pepper jams! there is also a chicken coup (chickens to come soon) and horses! we had so much fun cooking large meals (mmm...veggie chili) together, going for walks, seeing all of the animals, and sitting by the fire!

we even went into hayesville, nc to go antique shopping and to the punkin chuckin festival! one group had a pumpkin launcher that sent the pumpkin over 900 feet!

we had the best time and the best company. i can't wait to go back in the spring once it's all done! mountain farm living is quite the life!

p.s. did i mention the sugarboo mascot? sugarboo aka "sugie" is a mini minature pig that acts just like a dog minus all of the incessant hunger! so sweet!
