Wingshadows Hacienda

Wingshadows Hacienda Here at Wingshadows we strive for self sufficiency by implementing organic farming practices in everything we do. We use no pesticides or artificial fertilizers.

Our chickens range the entire 5 + acres daily, taking advantage of natural forage & bugs. We milk every morning by hand & use the milk to make creamy Chev're & yummy Feta. Our well is powered by Solar as is the entire property during daylight hours. We have used the existing adobe clay to make our own bricks. From that, we have constructed the wall surrounding the Hacienda. Summers are spent ca

We may be retired, but not from the kitchen~! Even in these temps, the show must go on.

This year we planted a new Heirloom Tomato called "Big Brandy". It is a cross between a Bandywine & Big Dwarf. Awesome fruit (some 4-5 inches across), wonderful flavor, huge yield, virus resistant & ripens earlier than most Heirlooms.

I have been busy canning our bonanza of succulent tomatoes. Crushed Tomatoes, Salsa with Chipotle & Salsa with Jalapeno. Because of the heat in the kitchen, I opted to can using the side burner on my Barbecue. I'm happy to say it works perfectly.

Solar update......
The lower portion of our 5 1/2 acres is now totally run by solar. We are now working on the upper portion which includes the house. We hope to have that finished by next month. Then no more "power outages" unless we personally create them~! :)

Happy New Year~! Looks like 2018 will be the year of the Solar at Wingshadows. December with her warm temps, gave us the opportunity to to work on the solar installation.

Bruce & I were able to set up the first 10 panels on the ground. We then lifted 20 panels to the roof of the Battery House.The remaining 10 panels are set for the ground installation. We will then start the connection process.

The 20 panels on the roof will run the lower part of our property & the 20 panels on the ground will run the upper area.

Here are some progress pics. Not too bad for two 70+ year old's. :)

Yesterday's storm brought some excitement to the Hacienda. Lightening hit the Palm Tree in our front yard.. Fortunately we had our Pine tree (next to the Palm) & Olive tree trimmed a few months ago. The Pine is about 80 ft tall & hadn't been trimmed in 35 yrs. If it had caught fire, we would probably lost the house. The only casualty was our patio set that melted~! :)

The forestry service saw the smoke & came right out. Bruce had basically knocked down the fire but CDF foamed the area for any residual sparks. Thanks to everyone who called or wrote asking about our welfare.

Happy Mother's Day ~!

Moonshadow would have been my "2nd" choice for the name of our farm~! But, no worries....as long as we can provide good produce, fruits & herbs to EAT, we are happy. :)

One of our favorite farmers, Bruce from Wingshadows Hacienda. We've been working with Bruce and His wife Lynn for 5 years now. Two of the most awesome humans around. Farming organically and also all NON-GMO. It's not only about Local and Organic... it's about the care and health of the soil and animals. EAT takes the stance that if it has chemicals and modified organisms (made in a lab) then it's not clean and not healthy... period. We have no interest in supporting the degradation of our soil or any of our combined health. Don't fall for savvy marketing that says everything but "Organic and Non-GMO"... it's a crappy trap. Stick with Good, Clean & Fair foods- local or not! .

Today was very productive at the Hacienda. I used my new (to me) Excalibur Dehydrator to preserve some of this Summer's fruit. I dried Apricots, Pears & Figs. I'll take these taste treats & make Trail Mix for all my Christmas baskets.

I highly recommend this Excalibur Dehydrator. I've tried others & this is "da bomb"~!! Next on my "to do" list is Fruit Leathers stuffed with Goat Cheese for a Holiday Appetizer. Along with Caramel & Mixed Nut Goat Cheese Tortes. Are you getting in the Holiday Mood??? Just thinking about Fall/Winter makes this heat bearable. :)

I also made "Cajeta"....a Mexican Caramel Sauce made from Goat Milk, pure Vanilla & Cinnamon. Dip Apple Slices, pour over Ice Cream or a topping for Pound Cake. The taste is incredible.

I added pics but FB decided they were not necessary. So here they are again~!!
