Trial update

Posted on March 11, 2014 at 9:00 AM

It's been a very long time since we've updated this blog, in an effort to keep our original story at the top of the page. Most of our updates have been on our Sweet Peas Farm and Herbals Facebook page. But on this almost 1 year anniversary of our last post, the big one, I've got a lot to update you on. Unfortunately, since we're still in the middle of our legal battle, I can't.  :(

What I can do, however, is take a moment to speak about where we are in our battle, and what are our next steps. At this point we have lost phase one of the war. The judge sided with the Township and granted their injunction. In case you are interested, the transcripts are linked here:

February Transcript


While incredibly disappointing, this was no surprise. I know of only one case in all of the history of Right-to-Farm cases in MI in which the initial judge sided with the farmer. They just don't understand the law. Fortunately, the court of appeals does.

At this time the judge has issued her ruling, and we have X number of days to remove our animals. We will not be doing this, of course. Our atty is working diligently to file paperwork for this or that (legal mumbo jumbo inserted here) on our road to the appeals court. This is where we will have our actual "day in court," approximately a year from now. Wish us luck!

In the meantime we will be collecting sap from our maple and black walnut trees again (got them tapped yesterday. Spring is finally coming!!!), playing with our 2 miniature goats, and collecting tons of eggs from our chickens and ducks. Not to mention getting ready to plant the hundreds of seeds, trees, bushes and transplants I've been busy ordering and planning for this year. I'll be improving the beauty of our rain garden this summer, setting up a brand new rotational grazing plan, and we even hope to have a presence at our local farmers market this summer. Plus, our lovely new neighbors to the south have turned out to be some of our biggest supporters, joining the ranks of the rest of our neighbors. They even invited us to graze our goats on their property in order to help them cut down on having to mow. Now that's the kind of neighbor every farmer hopes for! There have been a lot of changes to our farm in the last year, and, as always, we're on to bigger and better things!

Speaking of, if you've not yet checked out our Etsy store, please do. You're almost guaranteed to like something, and it's all made by my own hands, and those of my child slave laborers - er, I mean enterprising homeschooled children, here on the farm.
