“Mud Season” is officially upon us. In fact, it’s raining right now as I type. Mud Season basically begins with the spring thaw, and ends once the grass & trees begin to bud and use up the excess moisture in the ground.

When we first moved in to Beekman 1802 Farm in 2007 it was the height of Mud Season. So while it might not be the favorite time of year for most of the locals, it will always hold a special place in our hearts. It’s kinda ugly…but it’s our ugly.

Take a walk with us around the farm today…but be sure to grab your umbrella…

Your farm uplifts our spirits and brings peace to our souls. There is joy in seeing the appearance of new flowers peeking up through the mud. I can hear the goats giggling and feel the adventure in your dog of running wild and getting mud on his paws. Thanks for the pictures.

We need to build a new chicken run this spring. Eyeballing how you made yours. And yes, mud season is super ugly, but also filled with activity and anticipation. The Beekman farm seems beautiful at all times.
