We just seized an incredible opportunity.  We'd been looking for the best way to manage the buckthorn and the purple loosestrife which are invasive species at the farm AND at the island. 


Today a family friend helped us connect with a 4H family that had four young...

 Another year at the MN State Fair is in the books.

Very fun to reconnect with so many friends who stop by and to share the rabbits with people who somehow wander through the Sheep & Poultry barn and find the rabbit exhibition.  So many cool people to meet who also care...

So super proud of the rabbits that own me!  HA
And not only do I think they are awesome, but the State Fair judges confirmed it. What a fantastic time at the fair and to win is even better.

 Thanks everyone who has reached out to send congrats and share my joy.  Just to restate the obvious, this is a pilot project and it's not our plan to make this a tourist destination.  I know everyone wants to come and see what I'm working on, but we aren't ready for g...

Today the dream of Peacebunny Island became REAL for me.  We had a signing party at the lawyer's office for the summer lease.  We actually have access to multiple private islands, the largest of which is 22 acres once the Mississippi River water goes down.

I'm giddy.  We are moving forward with a family trust to lease their private islands -- yes plural--for the summer. 

Now that we know there WHERE, we can start to figure out the HOW. 

So this is my little buddy Paxton Peacebunny, across the Mississippi River from...

We've been friends for the last year an a half.  He was part of the volunteer bunny crew that went with the Peacebunny Unit to Parkland FL.  Between camps he'll b...

You know when you meet JUST the right person at JUST the right time?  I've been looking for an island for just over two years, and we've connected with a family trust owns private islands on the Mississippi River.

Happy Earth Day! 
Because of the huge snow dump and quick melt, the river is flooded, so our 43 foot Nautiline houseboat continues in dry dock in Winona, Minnesota  USA.  We had scheduled our river trek for this weekend, but not with the flooding...

We're eager t...

On the calendar it says "Spring," but we do that differently here in Minnesota.  Apparently we're on the way to one of the snowiest months in state history.  We've had more snow days this year than I can ever remember.  And more is being dumped from the sky even as I w...
