Duck Attack

Blog: Smaht Fahm   -   Saturday March 26, 2011   -   By Erin

My heart is heavy this morning--a fox visited last night and took 5 of my remaining 8 ducks.  He took four newly egg laying females, which adds insult to injury.  It's our fault, however, because we forgot to go and put the ducks in their pen last...

Baseball Bats and Porridge

Blog: Bare Naked Honey Farm   -   Wednesday December 15, 2010   -   By Mabe

December 15, 2010  Another Wisconsin winter is decidedly upon us!  Over a foot of snow in one day and drifts several feet high.  Luckily, Uber Hubby  plowed, blew, and shoveled all day so that I would have paths to the barn, bees, and...

What's the Deal With the Eggs?

Blog: Rockgate Farm   -   Tuesday November 09, 2010   -   By Angela

I just don't get it!   With all the money and regulations and this and that, big business still can't produce a simple edible egg.  You know, that thing that we small farmers take for granted.    I find it absolutely hysterical, that...

Collegial chickens

Blog: Auntie Annie's Fields, LLC   -   Tuesday August 17, 2010   -   By Elizabeth

We have an unusually collegial batch of chickens. The other night, one of them stood by Ian and pecked at his boots. Ian stooped over and to stroke the chicken, and it just stood there calmly. They stayed that way for a long time. I have been troubled by the...

March 22 Life and Death This week has been dramatically eventful at JustPicked Farms.  Last week while I was at work, my daughter called to tell me that something had killed two of our free-range hens.  She didn’t see what...

Ten inches of snow 3 days ago, and here I sit filling in my seed order.  I am so ready for garden Its infecting my dreams.  Last night was the piglets raiding the pumpkin patch dream, and I don't even have the pigs and the garden on the same...

February 2010

Blog: Garden of Ethan   -   Sunday February 28, 2010   -   By Ethan

I bought a 4th goat yesterday.  She is related to my Lily, Lyla and Lola, and her name is Lily.  Lily 2 for now.  Spencer, my rent-a-buck, has completed his job, but I will miss his spunk.  He does these flying leaps and twists you wouldn't...

The Silence of the Ducks.....

Blog: Rockgate Farm   -   Tuesday August 25, 2009   -   By Angela

Where did she go?     She was just right there.  I know, I almost stepped on her.  Darn ducks, always following me around, making all that noise.....and doing bad things on the car port.  Who says they don't fly....Tell that...

Oooh, That Smell...

Blog: Pleasant Valley Farm   -   Monday June 29, 2009   -   By Emily

Although we've been hopeful that the chicken killers are no longer with us, we have been shutting the doors to the coop in the evenings.  On Saturday, we noticed that although  the chickens were safe, one of our Pekin (duck) hens was missing from our...

the Duck named Rooster

Blog: Re Rustica   -   Monday April 06, 2009   -   By fullofbeans

The duck named “Rooster” thinks that he is a chicken. He was raised with two hens and, when we adopted the three friends at the shelter, was quite confused. He takes good care of his hens, making sure they find ponds to bathe in (though they don’t want to...

The Zen of Gardening

Blog: Greenjeans Farm   -   Saturday February 07, 2009   -   By Jeff & Toni
