​This past weekend has been an amazing weekend as we had the privilege to welcome Henry Rowan Bowen to the Nature’s Roots Farm family. Weighing 8 lbs 8 oz and measuring 21.25 inches Henry entered the world at 0131 am on the 28th of January at the Chapel Hill Birthing Center. Angela powered through the natural birthing process and did an amazing job the entire time. Angela and Henry are doing great and both are very healthy. Willow has also been super excited as she is now a “big sister”. We had amazing support from both sides of our family this past weekend and want to thank all of you for sending us positive thoughts and prayers.

​With this extreme cold weather, it has been a bit challenging on the farm with water pipes freezing/bursting and having to make many adjustments to our home and overall water process for the animals. But we have been adjusting and getting things in order and are looking forward to the weather warming up a bit in a week or two. We are excited for the New Year and all of the things we have planned for 2018. Some highlights for 2018 that we are going to focus on include building a brick oven in our outdoor kitchen to allow us to expand into bakery items such as breads, pizza nights on the farm, etc. Also, we will continue to work on our forestry project allowing us to have more pasture which will in turn allow us to increase our dairy cow herd. With the increase in dairy cows we will be able to offer more products such as cream and cottage cheese and of course have more milk. Also, we intend to have additional workshops on the farm on various topics that have been requested by our customers. Stay tuned for more details as we continue to work through these items.
