At Blue Hill
“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.”
At Blue Hill we take our impact seriously – only natural fertilizers are used —- coffee grounds, eggs shells, worm castings, fish fertilizer and banana peels are added to the soil.
Organic growing starts
Our Farm Manager hand built cedar beds and the planting began…heirloom tomatoes, peppers, squash and herbs…..then came the deer and the groundhogs and LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of rain…while the Farm Manager did not find the ground hogs or deer eating the heirlooms amusing I did!…. somehow they knew I wanted to instagram them and I was never able to capture a shot!
The Chicken Coop is was completed in 2019 BUT we quickly realized how fun chickens AND ducks are and expanded the coop to be able to have a variety of chicken breeds and four Khaki Camel ducks.
I attended my first chicken keeping class at the Loudoun County Animal Shelter as we are committed to safe and healthy birds.
