Sand Hill Farm

Tales of stunning sunsets, happy sheep, and peace and quiet on a 10-acre farm in Northeastern Kansas.

It’s a Tradition: Smoked Salmon

I love smoked salmon at Christmas...by itself, on crackers or toast, for breakfast or lunch, even with green eggs, Sam, I am.

Some Things You Just Can’t DIY…

I just want to say, there are just some things you can't do yourself. This crew has worked hard all week on the barn, and it's almost done. We wouldn't have been able to erect this structure by ourselves in under 60 days!

A Barn For Christmas!

(This is not just a picture of a potty. This is a picture of the future site of my new barn!) The sheep get a barn for Christmas! And the horse, too. It's a pretty good present for me as well! I'm starting to get excited.

Bruce the Blizzard

Bruce did not treat us well. I'm from Montana and I haven't even seen a blizzard like that before! We got about 8 inches with some 3 foot snowdrifts. The animals definitely suffered from the wind the most.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Good food, family, and not taking things for granted.

Winter is Here

The sheep have experienced their first, second, and third snowfalls. They don't seem to mind being coated with "powdered sugar". I keep telling them it's not a big deal. I think I'm coaching myself, not them.

Autumn in Kansas

Okay, so it's gorgeous here in the fall. We've been having epic fall weather, too. Not very windy, warmish, sunny, leaves every warm color under the rainbow...

Summer is Fading, Fall is Here!

I have seen my first yellow leaves of fall...  (I think depression is setting in!)  As the weather cools, I am gnawing my nails worrying over the coming winter, thinking about how few cold-weather clothes I even own, and agonizing over how much more hay I need to bring in.  I am feeling this strange sense of impending doom.  I know, really melodramatic, right?  Well, I haven't had fall or winter for nigh on 13 or 14 years.  Give me a break!

When People Leave Their Pets Behind…

The house we purchased here in Northeast Kansas ended up coming with two cats, 12 chickens, and two ducks! Yes, the sellers left their pets behind. Can you believe it? Neither could we. We continue to be horrified.
