Pictures from the Tour de Coops

Last month for the third year in a row, we participated
in the Phoenix Permiculture Guild's
The Tour de Coops is a self guide tour of twenty
different chicken coops in central Phoenix.

One of the tour goers was Angelina of Angelina Rose Photography
and she sent us these beautiful images of our farm she took that day.

I love to see the world through another artist's eye...

I though I'd share them with you!

I am going to post this weekend the answer to the big question I keep getting asked.
Did the "meaties" every go to freezer camp?  If you want to know, stay tuned...

It is marmalade making day for me--oh how I love fresh citrus.  IT will be for sale this Saturday
at the Mesa Historic Home Tour Market and on Thursday night at JAM Picket Fences event
in Old Town Scottsdale.

Happy Tuesday!


  1. Lovely! We share a love of raised beds and espalier! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Simply beautiful! I love your farm... :o)

  3. What a beautiful yard and gardens! And such a cute coop too! Love it :)

  4. Just beautiful! Very inspiring! Great fun and post!

  5. so awesome! love your coop and yard! your home reminds me so much of my fave phoenix resturant, Arcadia Farms :)
    since you are familiar with IL suburbs, do you think it would be unwise to have chickens in my yard, with winter and all? i have a pretty big back yard, and of course they would have a fancy coop ;)
    i think my daughter would love it too!
    i'd love to hear what you think...
    have a great time at the home tour and JAM!

  6. Caroline your place looks so amazing, the pictures are wonderful and I can't believe you have so much growing right now but that's Phoenix for you. I love seeing the chickens roaming about your lawn. I would love to have chickens but I'm not in the mood to feed all the wildlife around here.Freezer camp too funny, we say the cows up the road went on their boat ride.


  7. Such lovely, lovely photos, Caroline!! It looks like a dream at your farm, so picturesque. All of your incredibly hard work really shows. You and your precious family should be so proud! xo, Andrea

  8. Oh, Caroline! I would have LOVED to have taken this tour!!! :D Angelina's photos of Boho Farm are amazing. Thanks for sharing them with us!

    1. Thank you Ricki! Please feel free to check out more of my work ... I'm a little backed up with the blog posts but they will be coming. =) Phoenix wedding photographer

  9. What a great idea to have a tour of chicken coops! We only tour gardens here, but I might have to suggest the chicken coop tour.

  10. hello caroline

    i had to come and visit after you left such kind words on my blog about winter gardens, and here you are in arizona! well, you have one great blog and am so happy to have found you! we share so many interests

  11. These pictures put a huge smile on my face.
    I love the picture of your chickens roaming your garden.
    And your coop... so charming!!!

    Thank you to you and Angelina.


  12. OMG, your gardens and coop is fantastic. I would have loved to go on that tour. We have visited Phoenix a couple of times in the past and had even thought about retiring there when my husband was playing golf a lot. Now he switched hobbies to rebuilding vintage cars so we will stay put.

  13. So pretty and absolutely functional! I want to come play in your backyard!

  14. These photos are breathtaking!! I just found your blog and am SO glad I did! So much inspiration here for our own backyard farming endeavors!!!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments!
