Other Spring Happenings

The maple sap is flowing, albeit a little sporadically. We finished bottling about 7.5 gallons last week and are now cooking our next batch. Matt is sludging through the mud, as we speak, to empty the buckets!

The sheep also had their yearly haircuts yesterday, thanks again to Wyatt. They look great though are stuck in the barn for another day to keep them from getting chilled.

And Griswold was a perfect gentleman when meeting the new goat kids. He even sat next to me, leash-less, while we tried to take their pre registration pictures.

Pygora Kids are here!!!

The farm is full of adorable bouncy goat kids right now. Houdini surprised us by having quadruplets - all healthy and thriving. Screech and Jeena each had singles. Unfortunately Jeena’s didn’t make it so she is now raising one of the quadruplets. Chip had twins. So in total we have 3 doelings and 4 bucklings keeping the adults busy right now. All of them are for sale so please contact us to be added to the waitlist of check back on the For Sale page to see who is still available (as soon as people on the waitlist have a chance to select the goats we will be updating the page).

Spring is Here!

Happy Chickens

The chickens are enjoying their new mobile coop.  Stop by the farm if you need any eggs.  The chickens are laying like crazy.

We're going to the mill!

Finally all the wool and fiber is skirted, washed, and ready for the mill.  Americas Natural Fiberworks will be doing our processing for our first ever mill spun yarn.  We can't wait for July to come when we will hopefully be getting oodles of yarn in return!   Tell all your knitting and crocheting friends to keep a lookout for us at the Sidney Farmers Market later this summer!

And we'll leave you with this adorable lamb picture of the week....
