New Online Store

Our old online store has had a good run, but the software is showing its age and we have a lot more product in stock than what was viewable online.   So we’ve taken some time this winter to migrate over to a new online store that will give us more options in the future.   We’ve …

Please Ignore the Mess

Over the coming weeks I’ll be working on reorganizing this website and blog to hopefully make it easier to maintain and give it a bit of a facelift.   The main site was originally implemented in phpwcms which is a great simple php based CMS (Content management system).  It’s easy to setup and maintain, but …

For Sale – One Old Barn

[singlepic id=26 w=240 float=right] I hate to see old barns like this go, but there really is no salvaging it as a barn.  I was already too far gone when we purchased the property nearly 12 years ago and would cost far more to fix the foundation, siding and roof than a …
