ULIVjava and a New Addition to the Farm

There is a lot of activity going on at my farm. 

Here in the Northeast, the last few days have been very pleasant - warm enough to get a lot of chores done. The outdoor grounds crew has been busy cleaning the woodlands in preparation for new seedlings, top dressing garden beds with mulch, and picking up any stray branches or debris left over from two recent snow storms. Over the weekend, we also welcomed a new peacock. Pedda Reddy, a passionate peafowl breeder and raiser in Dutchess County, New York, came by to drop him off and to help introduce him to the resident peacocks, peahens and peachicks - he is simply stunning.

We also celebrated the launch of ULIVjava's new "k-cups". You may recall, my longtime personal trainer, Mary Tedesco, is the co-founder of ULIVjava, a company that seeks to create and promote healthy, great-tasting, organic coffee products that are infused with vitamins, minerals, and herbs. The company produces ground coffees, and now single-serve coffee pods. I joined the ULIVjava partnership after tasting the delicious drinks. The following are some images taken of the "k-cup" manufacturing process.
