Stony Brook Farm Recommends

Hello Ian,

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog and add a link to it on your own. I really like the idea behind your blog. Like you, I enjoy reading farm blogs, but have found them difficult to find, and when I do find them, I often forget to bookmark them or subscribe to them, so I either forget about them or can't ever find them again.

I am an inveterate writer. I have tried for years to give it up for various reasons, but invariably, I find myself tapping away. The thing that I am most interested in right now is the farm, so I decided to start a farm blog about a month ago. So far it is going reasonably well. The focus of the blog is the practical day-to-day aspects of the farm, which is a diversified, pasture-based livestock farm, and any relevant (or occasionally not so relevant) social, political, cultural, philosophical, etc. concerns.

These are a few of my favorite farm blogs:

Farmbedded (USA) -- -- Jared is an intern at the Howell Living History Farm. I don't know how long he will be there and blogging about it, but his posts are well written and interesting.

Sugar Mountain Farm (USA) -- -- Walter is a Vermont pastured pig farmer - his blog is full of insights on raising pigs on pasture.

Musings from a Stonehead (UK, Scotland)-- -- Stonehead's croft-related posts are excellent. His youngest son takes excellent photos.

Bedlam Farm Journal (USA) -- -- I was pointed to this blog just the other day, and I can't remember by whom/what. It has excellent pictures.

The Dairy Princess Diaries (USA) -- -- Mandy, a farmstead cheesemaker, was the first person to leave a comment on my blog. She posts a few times per month.

Thank you again for conceiving of and taking on this project.

Best regards,

Bob Comis
