Who Wants To Live in the Country?!

Ever dreamed of living in your very own farmhouse? Fantasized about leaving the hustle and bustle of the city and escaping to a quieter country retreat? Well, you are in luck! Silly Goose Farm is available to rent from September 16-19, and also Columbus Day Weekend.

If you are a fan of this show, you'll definitely want to take advantage of the September opening. Harvest Festival in Sharon Springs is guaranteed to be a good time! Read more about it here and here. Silly Goose Farm is located about 25 minutes East of Sharon Springs, and the famous Beekman Mansion (home to Beekman 1802).

Fall is quickly approaching, and the first blush of apples is in sight. What better way to celebrate the season than to pick apples in your very own orchard?

Or take leisurely strolls along the pastures and woods of the property?

Enjoy a quiet meal at home, or indulge at local restaurants, including this one, this one, and this one.

Start your morning of exploration with a cup of coffee from the kitchen...

Or, just lounge about at home.

Either way, sleep deep and soundly at night.

If you are interested in renting Silly Goose Farm, please email us at sillygoosefarm@gmail.com.

No, I'm Not Dead

I've been a bad, bad blogger. How long has it been since my last posting? Months? That sounds about right. This summer has flown by, and all sorts of exciting things have happened for us. Besides some minor (and one major) house renovations (pictures coming soon!), some travel, and a few parties, just the general pace of life, work, and oh yeah, that new kid, has caught up with us. But I promise I have some really exciting features coming up soon, if you'll be patient with me.

Here's proof we're still alive. This was about 15 minutes after getting out of bed (just enough time to dress Edie). Would you believe that all these months later, I'm still retaining water from pregnancy. Just look at that puffy face!

Hope you are all well, and stay tuned for more exciting posts!
