10 THINGS YOU DIDN`T KNOW ABOUT BEES

12/04/2013

Good day to all :) Our animal week blog article series finishes with an insect, actually. After writing about pigs and sheep because these are the animals I came across to recently and it seemed natural to dig up some information about them, I started thinking what the third article should be about. I wanted it to be something meaningful, so, again, it only seems natural to make it about the maybe most important farm inhabitant – the bee. Since you are following this blog, there should be no need…

10 THINGS YOU DIDN`T KNOW ABOUT SHEEP

10/04/2013

Hello, hello :) As promised, the “10 things you didn`t know about…” series continues.  And how it continues! Oh, my, sheep are in order :) I`ve always thought of sheep as funny, but not exactly in the good way, animals. Just see what their Wikipedia definition is: “Sheep (Ovis aries) are quadrupedal, ruminant mammals…”. Quadrupedal! I mean, what kind of a word is that… yet, its weird ring somehow fits with those curly, used-to-be-white…

Pioneer Farm: AlAnn Ranch

We are a 90-acre family-run alpaca and mohair farm. We - shear, spin and card, knit and crochet and felt - our own animals for fiber.

Pioneer Farm: Ecoagrobio - A Man With Mission

04/02/2013

At the most magical, east part of Rhodopa Mountain we found farm Ecoagrobio. Behind the complicated name is something very simple – one man’s dream. Living up in the mountain in a natural rhythm and surrounded by pristine beauty is what Georgi has wished for ever since he can remember. And here he is today, proud owner of a farm in the village of Chernichino. In 2007 Georgi decided to take care of an endangered species, Rhodopa short-horned ox, the oldest aboriginal breed in Europe. For a…

Pioneer Farm: The Horse Riding Centre PlanaKon

21/01/2013

PlanaKon is a horse riding center located in the heart of Plana Mountain – in the Valley of Planstitsa River, only 35 km away from Sofia. Plana is a small Mountain at the foot of the bigger, Vitosha Mountain. The landscape of Plana is fascinating – it is covered by mixed forests and glades, showered with flowers and fresh grass. In the past the area was covered by century old beech forests but with time they have been lumbered and now only few of the giant trees have survived. The forests now are…

Teddy and the Joy of Creation

08/01/2013

Hi, friends! My name is Teodora, but you can call me Teddy :) Let me start by telling you a bit about myself. I'm just an ordinary girl with interests in preserving nature, eating healthy food and living my life in a way that helps me grow – emotionally, rationally and creatively. I love to smile. In my opinion, smiling can help you overcome the stress and it can even cure illness. So, keep on smiling and don’t be afraid of being positive all the time. The other thing I love is wearing colorful…

THIS CHRISTMAS LESS IS MORE

14/12/2012

Most likely you've seen it all by now. Year after year, the holiday seasons strikes and people start running around streets and malls like hamsters in wheels. Wasting time and energy, so much energy, in what at the time seems like the most important thing in the whole wide world. Presents. A multibillion dollar industry which has twisted our perception about Christmas. And instead of being all about people, it becomes all about stuff. Another crazy round of spending money we don't have on things we don't…
