    Farm Fresh Weekly

    Warm weather brings spring grass
    This week we were able to stop feeding hay as the new grass growth is sufficient to feed the cattle and sheep. What a great feeling! The warmer weather also means we were able to get our garden planted several weeks earlier than normal. Starting plants in the greenhouse plus the warm weather means we are quite ahead of schedule. Is anyone counting the days to sauerkraut like we are?

    Chicks have arrived!
    The first batch of 400 chicks arrived via mail this week and are happily adapting to their new home. Check out Facebook for pictures!

    Calving begins
    Usually, the first calf of the season brings great joy on the farm.  This year, however, the start of the calving season was not so happy.  Our first calf was born this week several weeks premature and did not live.  The cow is also not doing very well.

    Stories from the farm
    Ken:  What beautiful rain we had this week!  When the sun did come out it seemed brighter than ever.  One clear, bright, still morning when I went out I heard roosters crowing in the field and turkeys gobbling down by the river.  Such a sweet life here on the farm.

    Healthy food for healthy living.
