Redwood's Second Annual Friends and Family Day is coming up March 6. Be sure to stop in at the Better Farm table for information on our upcoming Earth Day cleanup and pot-luck dinner, and for our summer workshop schedule!
A lovely addition to our new barn! Big thanks and eternal gratitude to @klav1967 and his electrical prowess (and @lauracaldwell5936 for the ridiculously gorgeous chandelier!). Place is shaping up! #barnwedding
Lazy morning belly rubs with Winnifred. 🐽

New friends 🤝
Beautiful photography show by @jct.photos yesterday! “Consumed” takes a look at waste in America, exploring the commodification of desires and the volume of consumption and waste in western culture. Jodie is staying with us for the month through the betterArts Residency Program — stay tuned for her next show toward the end of the month! More info on the artist at jctphotos.com, and the residency program at betterArts.org.
@bpfiddlefreakout and family return to @betterfarm for hangs and tractor time ❤️
Saturday mornings at Better Farm 🙌🏼
Q. Why should you never tell secrets in the garden?
A. Because the corn has ears and the beanstalk.
Greetings from the kiddie pool 🤦♂️
Quite a looker. Just a few steps, a deck and a handful of chandeliers to go...
One of our @etsy customers (and award-winning designer!) @alpacaloopholes shared these photos featuring organic corespun huacaya alpaca fiber from Better Farm’s herd (specifically, Inez and Frankie Blue Eyes). The fiber was then felted, increasing the rug’s size from 32” to 37” in diameter — plenty of extra room for cat model Gus to stretch out on! All our alpaca fiber is the result of annual shearing (necessary for helping the camelids beat summer’s heat), and profits go directly back into care for these rescued animals that have found sanctuary here. Intrigued? Check out our shop at etsy.com/shop/betterfarm
Chicagoan David Glynn of #emptycanband playing some tracks live on-air in the #betterradio station (podcast of his performance coming soon!). Learn more about Better Radio at www.betterarts.org/better-radio and on Facebook @fmbetterradio
Special live broadcast on #betterradio today with singer/songwriter/guitarist David Glynn of Empty Can Band from Chicago 🎸
Morning hangs with Buffalo.
Reason 6,382,929 why the Redwood community is simply amazing: When it’s the worst drought in years, neighbors like “Uncle Ted” hop in their Kubotas 10 miles away and just show up with a bale of gorgeous, nutritious hay for the animals here. “Figured they might like some,” he said, rolling it off the back of the ATV and into one of the paddocks as the alpacas and horses wandered over to say hello. We are so grateful for the support our friends, neighbors and extended North Country family show for the work we are doing to make so many animals healthy and happy. 🐴🐔🐶🐱🐷🐪
Checking in on the Better Bees #🐝🐝
World Wide Opportunities for Organic Farms, or #wwoof , is a hospitality service providing home stays on organic farms nationally and throughout the world. Volunteers spread the organic movement and learn homesteading and farming skills at registered farms, that in turn provide room and board. And, when it’s 90 degrees out, jumps into lakes. Here are #wwoofers Jill and Illiana enjoying a dip in gorgeous Butterfield Lake after a day of gardening and farm work.
Mondays are for mud! #winniethepig
