Blog: Clayton Farmers' Market and Small Farm Animals   -   Wednesday June 15, 2011   -   By Janice

Another beautiful 'sunshiny' (June 12th) day at Clayton Farmers Market - We are thankful!  One of our vendors - 4 year old Ty walked up to me so friendly holding a 3/4 eaten fresh radish ....'want a bite'? he asked.  Of course I couldn't turn down...

Blog: Bloom Where You're Planted Farm   -   Tuesday May 24, 2011   -   By Teresa

I wanted to share a few more photos of springtime on the farm.  This is such a colorful time of year--the sky is SO blue, the pastures are so lush and green, the flowers are blooming and there are birds of every color, from bluebirds to orioles.  Did...

Providing for the needs of wildlife begins at home

Blog: At Home in Nature   -   Sunday May 22, 2011   -   By Mary

When planning landscaping or your garden, remember the wild creatures – especially those that migrate.     By planting native species, you are likely providing necessary food and or shelter to these animals.   You can also then better enjoy...

Meeting of The Minds

Blog: Dark Water Ranch   -   Wednesday March 09, 2011   -   By shepherd

I am sure this farm does not run like a well-oiled machine. Matter of fact there seems to be only one thing that every species of animal agrees on around here. Can you guess what that is? That is right F-O-O-D. It always has to be time for food. When is it...

http://ppjg.wordpress.com/2011/02/22/illinois-hb-1166-nibs-animal-hoarding/  This is the latest on HR1166, which would criminalize people housing more than 7 animals at any one time. It would eliminate all the foster homes shelters rely on when they...

Justice!

Blog: MM Livestock Co   -   Thursday February 17, 2011   -   By Megan

First let me say Thank You to everyone that has supported us through the crazy attacks we have been enduring for the last few months. The outpouring of love has kept us fighting and justice has partially been served! The person that killed my colt has been...

Back in the swing of things...

Blog: Bloom Where You're Planted Farm   -   Thursday January 06, 2011   -   By Teresa

Six days into 2011 and I'm finally starting to feel the inspiration that comes with the fresh posibilities of a new year.  I haven't written a blog since fall so there is much to report on. We had the best pumpkin patch season we've ever...

Tonight is The Night!

Blog: Rockgate Farm   -   Friday December 24, 2010   -   By Angela

  It's Christmas Eve again.  One of the most blessed, miraculous times.  Since I was a child, I've believed that the animals speak, by the Grace of God, on Christmas Eve.  They celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ........

Today is Yesterday's Tomorrow

Blog: Double R Farm (Amish Country Soaps & Sundries)   -   Tuesday November 09, 2010   -   By Christine

   Confused? I sure am. The tomorrow that I put off a few yesterdays ago is now here. That means the to-do list I didn't tend to is still there as well. I couldn't sleep last night as thoughts of chores whirled in my mind. I fought...

Feeding the Wildlife

Blog: Miolea Organic Farm   -   Tuesday July 06, 2010   -   By Brian

You never stop learning, I guess that's the good thing, but why does the learning process have to be so expensive?  For instance, it took six years of different mistakes before we got great corn, the one quote we got was from a repeat customer. The...

Lambs! Lambs! Lambs!

Blog: Evergreen Students for Sustainable Animal Agriculture   -   Wednesday February 10, 2010   -   By ESSAA

I am proud to announce the births of three little lambs! Two of our ewes lambed on Thursday and they are adorable beyond all reason. We let the families into the pasture on Monday after jugging and monitoring them to make sure that they bonded and that all was...

Old Man Winter

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Wednesday February 10, 2010   -   By Terry

I never really thought about just how hard winter is on "everyone", but since I've been a farmer, I've come to realize that  it's really hard on all the critters that live outside during the winter.  They all need extra attention this time...

Christmas Snow

Blog: Pleasant Valley Farm   -   Monday December 21, 2009   -   By Emily

The snow is falling gently outside, and we're not expecting weather above freezing, so it looks like we'll be having a white Christmas here at Pleasant Valley.  The big storm that blew up the East Coast spared us, so we only have about 4 inches here....

Ahhh, the Morning Sunrise on a Farm!

Blog: The Orchard at Apolloson Acres   -   Friday September 25, 2009   -   By Allison

It is mornings like this one that remind me how lucky I am to live on a farm! We all know there are some mornings when you envy those who can sleep in and rise with the sun....or later! But waking up before dawn, stepping outside and letting that...

Blog: The Mushroom Hut @ Fox Farms   -   Monday September 07, 2009   -   By Alan and Susan

Last weeks' market showed a sign of fall.  Root crops such as irish potatoes, sweet potatoes and turnips were at the market.  We had pumpkins...the Sugar Pie pumpkins are in and they make wonderful pies.  The roasted seeds are delicious...

County Fair, Part II

Blog: Bloom Where You're Planted Farm   -   Monday August 10, 2009   -   By Teresa

Another Cass County Fair has come to a close.  As a kid, this was a sad event because it meant that the start of the school year was near.  As an adult with a seasonal fall business, it means its time to kick it into high (higher?) gear! ...
