At 25-years-old, being called “The Chicken Lady” is not something you’re quick to bring up in conversation when making new friends!
This name of mine developed some years ago, on a farm I used to work at. People began approaching me with chicken problems and I apparently had chicken solutions. My actual name is Laura Field, but I since have embraced “The Chicken Lady.” Let’s face it, you might forget who “Laura” is, but ain’t nobody gonna’ forget The Chicken Lady!
Today, I have moved on from my two farms in Mass, (Hancock Shaker Village and Ice House Hill Farm), to take on a new venture at Woodstock Sustainable Farms in Woodstock, Ct. I hope you enjoy my blog and please feel free to message me with questions or comments.
Also, for those interested, I provide fun, educational, and hands-on presentations to local elementary schools, bringing real live farm animals either into the classroom or out on the lawn. If you’re school is located in or near Northeastern Connecticut and you would like to give your students an opportunity to feel like a farmer, click here to contact me for more information.
