Holy Goat! We moved the farm!

Posted by on April 30, 2012 in On the farm

Our successful transfer to the trailer!

A HUGE and humble thank you for everyone who spent a half day or more helping us relocate our farm and gardens. We have successfully, and in record time, moved our entire downtown Wish We Had Acres farm to our new home near South Mountain. The hens were moved so smoothly, they appear to show no signs of stress and egg production remains at its peak!! In the words of our keystone coop levitator, Wade Taylor, “Viva la omelette.”

The Coop with a Stoop now resides under a shady Jacaranda.

 We hope our new farm will be sanctuary to all of our friends in time.

A special thanks to the Chicken Coop levitation team; Chris, Wade, Rubin, Alex,  Jeremy, Dave and Laura; and our camera crew: Wilson Taylor, Rachel and Christopher Alston. Many thanks to Wilson, Kat and Kendall for uprooting our gardens; Bree for battling the IRS to help us close on our house and for stepping in to watch the farm along the way; Ginger and Stu for the relief and staying power on our 4th day; Chris, Rachel and Christopher for the trailer that hauled the Coop with the Stoop down 7th street; and most importantly, Jeremy Prescott for the endless treks with truck and trailer for 3 full days!! We couldn’t have done it without all of you. Collectively you all made child’s play of an otherwise impossible situation. You made our dream a reality. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
