Coming soon


We don't have a lot of news to share from the farm. Everyone seems to be in auto-pilot and getting on with routine tasks. The cattle are eating their hay and lounging around by the barn. The chickens are scratching constantly and have gone into egg-laying overdrive. The guineas are patrolling the property and alerting us to loud gas trucks at 10pm. 

The biggest news is that bacon  hogs will be arriving soon! Farmer John bought five piglets last week. They have a couple more weeks before they are weaned, and then we will get them. The plan is to house them in the barn for a couple weeks and then put them on pasture for the rest of their stay here. The bacon should be arriving in mid-August. We're excited, it's a dream coming true!

  2. After the 'year from hell', I'd say no news is good news, everything running as it should represents a well earned, well deserved victory!

    1. Thanks Kate! I've been thinking it was mostly just a boring time around here. But, compared to last year at this time, I'd take boring any day!
