Red beets harvest and soup making

A simple soup made out of our own red beets

After a light night frost we started harvesting all of our red beets before the frost makes them useless. We love our red beets as a soup. Even our children eat this soup well, so I thought to shear the simple way I make this soup with you.

All you need are some red beets, an onion, a few garlic cloves, beef broth, a cup of cream and some dill.

Cut the red beets, onion and garlic cloves into cubes and put the vegetables into a cooking pan.

Ad the beef broth so that the vegetables are just submerged.

Bring everything to a boil and simmer for about 15-20 min. until the red beets are softened.

Now blend everything with a hand blender to the consistency you like and ad the cream and the dill to your taste and liking.


I made a bigger batch so after blending I put half in jars to freeze for a later meal

Goat’s stable up-date

It was finally time to move the goat’s stable to its new owners.

We loaded the stable on to our trailer and set off for a 2 hour journey with the tractor.

At the customer we got the stable of the trailer with the frontend loader and put it on its final position.

I am proud to say that the customers where very pleased with this stable and our service. I am sure they will enjoy the stable for a very, very long time.

Larchwood Goat’s stable

A custom goats stable

I build this beautiful goat’s stable for a customer who wants to start having goat’s and ducks.

This stable has a separate part for storing the food for the goats witch is also a place for some ducks to life. The ducks have a hatch at the side witch opens at the top and turns into a gangway for the ducks to walk over.

I used only Larchwood witch I sawed myself for this stable.

The life edge planking gives it a very nice rustic appearance.

Having experience in keeping goat’s I have made the stable extra strong with extra boards lining the inside so they cannot hit the outer planking lose.

Goat’s (as most people know) are very destructive, so the bottom door is removed when the goat’s are free to explore there meadow.

Due to the stable being on skits it can be moved around easily by a tractor with a front loader.

My customer was very excited when they saw the stable and cannot wait for the stable to be delivered.
