Formerly,Bar None Ranch, of Berlin, NY, we are now Climbing Tree Farm, of New Lebanon. We raise PASTURED POULTRY, and LAMB and WOODLAND PORK. We keep our animals true to their instincts- letting our pigs dig, our chickens range, our sheep graze. We feed rotationally graze on pasture and silvo-pasture (in the woods). We work with local raw milk dairies, and breweries, to feed our pigs whey, milk and brewers' grains. We are conscientious stewards of the land, and our animals.

|Washed up all of the chick feeders and waterers- made a resolution to wash them|
(outside with the hose) at the end of this chick season so that in the spring of 2015
I do not need to scrub chicken poop off of them in my bathtub again...ever.
|Picking up chicks from the post office. This box contains 100 little peeping fuzzballs.|
|Our son asked for chicks for his 7th birthday. He chose Cochins. They grow to be big, fluffy, and are quite tame. He likes that they have feathered legs and feet. |
Here he is at the post office, meeting his new friends.
|When we get new animals we always discuss with our kids which animals are for meat, |
and which will stick around as pets or breeders. This way they know who to get attached to.
These chicks are pets!
|Building a fort for, and reading to the new chicks.|
|Chicks love stories.|
|The birthday chicks live in the brooder in the shed with the other chicks,|
but come out for visits and story time.

|It is the first week of March now, |
and the weather station said it would be 27 degrees below the average today.
I see one or two days in the 10 day forecast in which the high goes above freezing.
It's still looking pretty wintery out there.
|The pigs have made themselves a network of trails through the snow.|
|Here it is: The first puddle of 2014!|
|We are SO excited for Spring!|
