Sakura Ridge Farm has a mini library book exchange with guests. If they finish a book while staying here they have the opportunity to exchange or just take another book on the shelf that a previous guest had left behind. The books from the exchange travel the world. Here’s an even better idea. We might have to put one up by the farm gate.

Tiny on the Town
Check out Tiny’s Meet and Greet on the Street
Tiny went on his first outing to visit some of our favorite restaurants in the Columbia River Gorge.
Tiny couldn’t go inside so we looked in the windows and doorways. Can you guess where Tiny went first?
Tiny is 3 days old and today decided he was going to fight for it and stand up. He’s going to make it.
Jessie Sue the farm dog is all over Tiny Tim – trying to be his momma. J. Sue constantly is licking, prodding and cuddling Tiny.
Can’t beat a log house for living cozy. These logs were shipped down from British Columbia and constructed on site by the original owners, Doug & Teri Adams.

It’s that time of year in the Hood River Valley. Lambing.
Yesterday morning we had our second set of twins by a young ewe who was having trouble taking care of both so now we are bottle feeding the girl. Last night every 2 hours, now it is every 4 hours.
Farmer John knew just how to give the girl her bottle at 6 a.m.

This simple tart looks beautiful and tastes even better. It took less than 15 minutes to get into the oven.
- Start with a puff pastry sheet thawed and rolled out with a bit of flour.
- Place it on a buttered cookie sheet.
- Peel 3 to 5 pears or apples and cut in half. Remove the core. Place the fruit flat side down and make thin slices while holding the shape with your hand. Fan out the sliced pear half and slide it onto your knife and then onto the dough sheet. Continue until the sheet is full of sliced fanned fruit.
- Dot liberally with butter and sprinkle generously with white sugar. We added sliced almonds when we tried this at home. Nice touch. It would be great with ice cream!
- Bake in a 350 degree oven until golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes.
