We had a visit this weekend from the folks from Red Bucket Farm . They live on the far east side of Madison, as we understand it, and have been working at making their small yard into a complete urban farm. They have chickens, of course, which is why they stopped at CLUCK, and they also had bees, although their bees died earlier this year. You can see that blog post here.
The Red Bucket Farm blog has been written by Cindy since 2011 and includes all kinds of information about keeping chickens, winterizing bee hives, growing greens in a hoop house, managing an orchard, pest control and lots more. They’re not experts in the academic sense, but the blog has some good, common-sense advice that anyone interested in sustainable backyard farming might enjoy.
We recommend it.
