Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas wishes from Meduseld!

There is the impression that farm life slows during the winter months.  Not true!  We are going to share the activities of the cold months with you and provide links and information so that you can do these as well.  Of if you prefer, you can just follow along, as we work here at Meduseld.

We have been asked – why Meduseld?  Meduseld is the anglicized version of the anglo-saxon word maeduselde, which means mead hall.  Since we raise bees and are interested in Beowulf and medieval hsitory, we thougth the name is appropriate.  We choose to use the simplified version; its much easier to provide as a web address:)

The next posts will cover hoop or tunnel house gardening, maple syrup making, spinning and dyeing wool, and livestock care.

    You’ve never had maple syrup like this before. The real thing! It’s delicious!

    These pictures of the farm really capture the beauty that is Meduseld ! It’s hard to convey the amount of love, caring, attention and thought that goes into a family farm, but I think you have done a wonderful job! Dian is right, Vermont has nothing on your maple syrup….

      Thanks, Eva! In the next week we will begin tapping some more trees. We have tapped a couple just to monitor how sap is flowing and the children have been drinking the “tree water” as they call it. Hopefully, this will be a good maple season!
