What happens when the cabinet door is left ajar? Well, not just any cabinet I have to say. It is the cabinet where the cat nip is stored. Every year we pick up a Nickle Bag of cat nip at the Common Ground Fair. If left to their own ends the nip would be gone in a matter of days. Oreo knows where the nip is stored. He has a problem. "Hello, my name is Oreo and I am a nip addict."
Yep, the nip cabinet. Open, waiting for a certain kitty to notice.
He will brave any peril for a treat of the good stuff. The organic nip, Maine Organic Nip. He is a nip head.
"Oh don't bother me now. I am busy. Happily busy with my nip. I love you, I love you. Don't mess with me I will bite you if you get too near. MY NIP!"
Much love from the slightly tipsy but very happy tuxedo cat, Oreo.
This is the story of two best friends who lived in seperate towns, managed two seperate homes with all of the bills, taxes, and house payments of each. We thought that it was silly to continue paying such high bills. We decided to look for an old farm where we each could follow our dreams. We looked for a house big enough that would allow each of us to have our seperate space, enough farm land to be able to have sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys and any other animals that caught our fancy. We needed a barn big enough to house animals and hay. Both of us love the seasons in New England and wanted to remain in the northeast. Both of us were ICU nurses and are under no delusion that we can pay our bills with farming alone. We needed to be located near a large hospital for employment. We work full time as nurses and full time as farmers. That was a lot of needs/wants to guide our search. We combed through magazines, for sale guides, and the internet. We found a place northwest of Bangor Maine that fit these needs. It was a fixer upper in the mildest of terms. This is our story, how we arrived, refinished a 160 year old farm house and are making our dreams come true. We hit bumps in the road at every turn and try to keep a positive attitude. After three years we have come to a change that can't be overlooked. After much thought Alex has decided to pursue her dream elsewhere. Now the farm rests with Ted and I. We will work together to make our dream an actuality. Please follow along with us and welcome to Mainely Ewes Farm.
