Keeping My Chickens Warm at the Farm

Today is expected to bring more flurries and frigid temperatures here to the Northeast.

At my Bedford, New York farm, my outdoor grounds crew checks the animals several times a day to make sure they are all warm in their stalls, coops and enclosures. When it comes to my chickens, I have four coops that house about two-hundred fowl - a variety of chickens, turkeys, two Pomeranian geese and a handful of Guinea hens. From the moment they arrive, I make sure they are housed properly, fed all the best, most nutritious foods, and have enough room to roam and range happily in their pen. This winter, I also wanted to develop a more efficient way to keep them safe and warm without overcrowding their coops with too many supplies. 

Here are some photos - enjoy.

Juicing Pomegranates

Pomegranates rank among some of my favorite fruits - especially this time of year. I love eating the juicy red seeds and drinking the healthy antioxidant-rich juice.

One morning last week, my housekeeper, Sanu, juiced a good number of pomegranates left over from our holiday party. It takes a little work to enjoy this superfood, but they are filled with wonderful fiber, and loads of potassium.

Here are some photos - enjoy.

Eating In and Around Palm Beach, Florida

I always enjoy visiting new restaurants whenever I travel - it is not only fun to try different foods, but also very inspiring to learn about other businesses and their specialties.

During my New Year’s visit to Palm Beach, we went to several establishments, including Clay Conley’s Buccan, Sant Ambroeus Palm Beach, Bice, The Butcher Shop, and Cafe L’Europe

Enjoy these last photos from my trip and be sure to visit my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48 for more pictures.
