Greetings from the Crazy Goat Lady

Hi all, been following TFL occasionally over the years as informative posts always seem to pop up in search results when I Google some obscure bread making question. Now that we've officially retired (from farming most recently), I have more time to explore my bread baking hobby so I decided it's time to make myself official here and join the discussions.

We're on the west coast of Canada on the Southern end of Vancouver Island, in a lovely little pocket of semi-rural farmland. Aside from diving deeper into bread making in my retirement, I'm also making a concerted effort to befriend any and all goatherds in the area, as I very much miss having my sweet little milking goats underfoot as I go about my day. :)

I too am a new member...and a former resident of the PNW, Oregon to be exact. Now living in the US Northeast. Your surroundings sound beautiful.

Unfortunately I am not near retirement so don't have nearly as much time to devote to baking as I would like, but that's okay -- we can only eat so much bread!
