1 At the entrance to Rainbeau Ridge - This logo appears on all of Lisa's goat cheese products.
2 Lisa making the rounds and checking on all of the pregnant females
3 These ladies are patiently awaiting their due dates.
4 This is LeAnn, as in LeAnn Rimes and Macy, as in Macy Gray. They are both due soon.
5 And this is Melissa, as in Melissa Etheridge, having a dialog with a Bourbon Red turkey, perhaps telling him that she was very pregnant and was due at any moment.
6 The live BarnCam - You can see what's happening in the goat barn and watch for new babies being born. http://www.rainbeauridge.com/cms/content/view/253/390/
7 This proud mother is Judy, as in Judy Collins, and her baby was just two days old.
8 Gwen, as in Gwen Stefani, with her little two-day-old doeling
9 And what an adorable little doeling!
10 Lisa saying hello to Lulu, the llama, who was assigned a new task of looking over the baby goats who had just been moved off their mothers.
11 These babies are now bottle-fed goat's milk. The reason they're taken off their moms is to maximize the efficiency of milk production for cheese making and to protect the goats' udders.
12 Lulu is very protective of her charges.
13 The babies are taken off their mothers at about two weeks of age and bottle fed goat milk until they are ten weeks old.
14 This is Blair Harshbarger, the cheese intern at Rainbeau Ridge.
15 Kevin Ferris, the property manager, just put in this paddock for the baby goats. Kevin is responsible for making sure everything works properly and seamlessly at Rainbeau Ridge.
16 Lauren, the farm director, bringing hay to the Kerry cows
17 This is Destiny. Kerry cows from the United Kingdom. They are a rare breed and are quite scarce.
18 And this is Destiny's Child.
19 Aimée is a local volunteer who comes by regularly to collect the eggs and to bottle-feed the kids.
20 Maple syrup making, known as 'sugaring' takes place in Northeastern US and Canada just as winter is losing its grip.
21 Sap flows steadily during temperatures that alternate between freezing and thawing.
22 The sap is 90% water. It takes 40 gallons of sap to boil down to 1 gallon of maple syrup.
23 Blair was on her way to get this sap boiling.
24 There are lots of seeds started in the gardener's studio.
25 Lisa rotates a flat of bunching onions.
26 Vera and her daughter Angeli are visiting Rainbeau Ridge volunteering their services in the vegetable garden.
27 One of two hoop houses on the farm - This one winters over tender artichokes beneath these protective covers.
28 It's much too cold in this environment for artichokes to survive the winter.
29 Lettuces abound in the other hoop house.
30 Beautiful nutty-tasting mache, or lamb's lettuce
31 Another view
32 The leaf lettuce had just been thinned out the day before.
33 Lovely, spicy arugula
34 Zuke, one of the farm cats
35 The middle of March is the time for planting peas.
36 In Lisa's kitchen at the farm, the maple sap has been boiling away.
37 Lisa is proud of the light amber color and flavor of her syrup.
38 She mixed some syrup into some of her goat cheese, producing a delicious cracker spread. Behind is another great treat - dulce de leche made with goat's milk.
39 And another - goat cheese mixed with dried cranberries and walnuts
