Twelfth Blog From the Sheep Farmer

We are Shady Hill Farms, Ltd.

Exclusive suppliers of premium all natural family farm produced lamb, beef and pork to Great American Lamb Company

We construe sustainability to include making the most of what we have.

Here's a real life example.

Prior farm help saddled us with used hay equipment that, plain and simple, wpuild not tie a single bale of hay.

Junk it! Some said.Cut it loose!

Buy new!

We have decided, instead, to make the most of what we have working with neighbors to refurbish the equipment to either bale hay or sell the equipment in 2010.

Just received a bill for $480 for repairs to the (antique) hay rake.

Probably well worth it when you consider that the (antique but now completely refurbished) hay rake will rake our hay as well as a new hay rake would.

At Shady Hill Farms, we make the most of what we have.

That includes hay equipment that we never wanted but are now saddled with.

Repair, refurbish, and then roll with it!

Better farming: Better Lamb!
