The welcome sign is always out on the coop at 1840 Farm. It usually welcomes guests to our farm. This week, it will be welcoming our new batch of day-old chicks.
We did make mistakes. Some were due to our inexperience; some were simply a matter of the trial and error that goes along with everyday life. Each mistake taught us something. Each misstep led us down the path of learning on the job and brought us closer to becoming experienced chicken keepers.
We’re still learning every day. The hens have taught us about egg production, calcium needs, molting, and how to cope with living through a hurricane by eating fresh eggs on the grill every night. I can honestly say that we have yet to experience a moment of regret regarding our decision to add chickens to our daily lives. Instead, we take immense pride in our chickens and our role as their keepers. Maybe that’s why we choose to welcome visitors to 1840 Farm by drawing their attention to our coop and its welcome sign.
I know that you are as proud of your flock and coop as we are. All of us at 1840 Farm would like to help you welcome guests to your family’s home in the same way that we do. One lucky winner will be chosen to receive a handpainted “Welcome to our Coop” wooden sign to proudly display on their coop. The winner’s sign will be handcrafted at 1840 Farm and customized with the year that their coop was established.
