Embraceable Ewe

Sheep Farming in Nelson

If you look  hard enough you might find the odd cow, horse, or other more exotic farm animals in Nelson, but by far the sheep are the most outstanding in their field. This month in the Nelson Agricultural Commission column, Val introduces us to the sheep farmers of Nelson. We find that there’s quite an interesting variety of these creatures, which also factor strongly in Nelson’s history. Associated with the article there’s an enchanting slide show.  Read it for the shear delight .  .  .  

Nelson Mystery Photo

It’s been a while since we ran a Nelson Mystery Photo. It’s always fun to see what guesses come in (except when we’ve made it too easy and everyone guesses correctly). So, check out the new Nelson Mystery Photo Number 8.

Venison Anyone?

Venison Stroganoff

Nelson terrain is happy hunting ground for a number of sportsmen, and this time of year the freezer gets tapped into. Check out these recipes (each quite different from the other) for venison.

Sacred Ally Quilt Exhibit

The Nelson Congregational Church received an unexpected opportunity to display the quilts made by nine UCC churches following the murder of George Floyd. Sacred Ally is one of the ministries that received funding last year from the church’s Garrett-Larsen Social Justice Fund. Rev. Chris Owen, the church’s former interim pastor, is one of the creators of the project. The Exhibit will be open in the Fellowship Hall of the church.
Wed., Feb. 9, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sat., Feb. 12, noon to 3 p.m.
Sun., Feb. 13, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
See the Calendar Listing for more detail .  .  .
