New website!

I mentioned we were working on it a couple weeks ago, and it's finally here. You've probably noticed that the blog looks different. It's been integrated into our new farm website. From here, you can visit any page on the website and learn more about us, our animals, and the products we produce on the farm. I hope you'll take a moment to check it out. Don't hesitate to let us know if a link isn't working, or if you find some other bug. We announced the new site last night on Facebook and received some feedback from a couple people on things that didn't work (and an embarrassing typo). I think it's all fixed now, but if you find something wrong, please let us know!

Thanks to Katherine, my youngest, who designed the banner and provided a lot of the photos. Thanks also to Sarah, our apprentice in November, who contributed additional photos.

Kudos to Margaret, my oldest, who has designed every Antiquity Oaks website to date. I do the writing and choose pictures; she does all the coding and design work, which is the hard part! She doesn't use any kind of program like Dreamweaver. She taught herself HTML, JavaScript, and CSS, so she builds sites the old-fashioned way from scratch. The challenge with the new site was integrating it with Blogger. I was jumping up and down and squealing like a three-year-old on Christmas morning when she got it to work. It's been fun having her home from college the last few weeks, and we're sure going to miss her when she leaves later today.

Very cool!

Nice clean site. Love the header images. Hand-coded is the only way to go.

Love it, all of it! I'm a bit jealous of all your talent "human resources." :-)

Love it!!

The only problem is the pretty banner that is on the site does not appear on the blog. :( And it doesn't load properly on other pages.

Anonymous,
Please tell me which browser (Chrome, perhaps?) you're using and what type of computer (Mac/PC).

The site was tested on both Mac and PC and on Explorer, Safari, and Firefox. We originally had a problem on Explorer with the banner, but got it fixed.

Thanks!

Explorer with a PC. If I try to view an animal page - the banner only half loads. But maybe it's just my computer!

Also, the options don't load fully either when on the blog. Again, could be my computer.
