Ironwood Hill Farm is named for the Ironwood trees that grow on our property. Above is an Ostrya virginiana (Hophornbeam), one of the Ironwood species that overlooks the pond in our front yard.
At Ironwood Hill Farm we are fortunate to be able to enjoy our breathtaking pond from the windows of our cabin. This is one of many of the morning sunrises we have shared after returning from the barn having milked our Nubian goats.
But we are not the only ones who enjoy the pond. One year we counted a flock of over 120 wild turkeys scouting around the perimeter of the pond.
Above is another species of Ironwood, Carpinus caroliniana (American Hornbeam), that abounds in our woods.
