November 4, 2018 We had a crazy summer with extreme temperature swings and either too much rain or not enough, but all in all it was another good year here on our farm
* * * The laying hens * * * Our hens have been laying steadily producing over six dozen eggs a day. * * * The meat Chickens * * * We still have meat chicken for sale - they are whole, and frozen so you need to see either Roger or Allison if you are interested in purchasing some of our chicken.
* * * the Sheep * * * Timothy our ram is now in with our five breeding ewes, the one lamb ewe we are keeping from this year (Nancy) is all by herself right now, and this afternoon we are loading the six lambs and two old ewes onto the trailer to go to the slaughter house tomorrow morning. The circle of life is definitely spinning here today.
* * * the Pigs * * * We raised sis pigs this summer and they are all in freezers right now. Yummy.
* * * the Gardens * * * Our gardens have all been put to bed for the winter, with a blanket of compost to feed the soil. The garlic has been in the ground since the end of October. Bring on the snow and cold! We have bags of organic compost ready for your gardens - they are $3 each.
Looking forward to seeing you at our family's Christmas Tree Farm - Allison & Roger
