Farming is very creative. It satisfies my need to create and be a part of the world. The cold winter gives me a lot of time to work on projects. This year we are going to build mobile chicken coops to help utilize our lower pasture. Right now the chickens are in a stationary coop and can go wherever they please. It is a little chaotic since they go into the woods, on top of the woodpile, and in the barn if we leave the doors open. We are missing out on directing their natural fertilizer where we need it which is in the fields rather then on a rock pathway. So to build our own mobile chicken coop we first had to build out a fabrication shop. I enjoy woodworking and metal work so the desire to build a shop has been there for a while. Setting up the space to manufacture what we need on the farm is a perfect Wintertime project.
