Since the 1970s a Man Has Been Planting a Forest Larger than Central Park, One Tree at a Time

Nestled in Northeast India next to the Brahmaputra River sits Majuli Island, a giant sandbar that happens to be the largest river island on Earth, home to some 150,000 people. It is also the location of the 1,360 acre Molai Forest, one of the most unusual woodlands in the world for the incredible fact that it was planted by a single man.

Orion and her daughter Adele. 
As many of you know, Orion is our herd queen. She now has four daughters on this farm and even more granddaughters (and great grand daughters!). While she is an outstanding milker with superlative behavior on the milking platform she is also an incredibly hearty goat that never complains. She barely utters a peep, and when she does it is a heart breaking little sad cry. You very rarely hear it. Above all though she is a super mother. She comes up to the milking platform without fail in the last line each time, Adele at her side. She is a majestic lady that we owe a great debt to. We were very lucky to have Orion as our first goat.

I’m sure Louisa and Lucas work harder than I ever will, and I’m sure there are plenty of daily annoyances and frustrations.
But jesus, Louisa’s posts make a goat farm in Vermont seem like The Life, right?

Once I was making hard candy. I was whipping it with a hand blender to aerate & cool, leaned over to see if it was cool enough. Hair into the beater, beaters beating my head, finally grabbed cord to unplug, & of course the shit hardened immediately.

Oh my god, you win!
