New Friend

Blog: Debbie's Garden   -   Sunday February 06, 2011   -   By Chickadee1

Thanks to localharvest I now have a new friend! A lady from Vineyard Farm (Anna) contacted me because she noticed I was close by (about 20 minutes), and wondered about my plants. I in turn wondered about her farm! We got to meet Saturday, which was her...

Goat In The Kitchen Sink

Blog: Dark Water Ranch   -   Saturday February 05, 2011   -   By shepherd

My day got started after breakfast, with a goat in the kitchen sink. We have snow right now, lots and lots of snow. Because we knew the bad weather was coming we made a large kidding area inside the big barn and locked all the girls inside. Smart move because...

Blog: Rainbow Ranch Farms   -   Monday January 24, 2011   -   By Poly

ON RAW MILK : If we, as a collective group, do not stand up for our rights to consume healthy, or even unhealthy foods of our choosing, soon the F.D.A. will tell us what we can eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner (and in between). ...

What a snow season that was

Blog: Goat Milk Bath and Beauty   -   Wednesday January 19, 2011   -   By pat@sleepingdogranch.com

I say WAS because we're hoping that the snow is all gone for the season. Those of us who made it through the season are stronger and our hearts are with the goats that didn't make it. Each passing has been logged in our chronicle of lessons learned. I...

Blog: MM Livestock Co   -   Sunday January 02, 2011   -   By Megan

Last nite while feeding the horses I buried Betsy! She spun herself 180o and buried her nose in the soft ground under the pine tree, I cussed, pushed, rocked, and begged to no avail! I was stuck! As I sat there in the dark trying to think of who to call for...

Easy Winter...So Far

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Saturday February 20, 2010   -   By Ann

I haven't posted here in a long time!  We are having a pretty easy winter this year.  Not much in the way of snow, only about a foot, if that.  It's been above average temps for quite a while.  I am liking the lack of snow, it makes it much...

Goodbye, Warlord

Blog: Pleasant Valley Farm   -   Friday January 15, 2010   -   By Emily

November 2009

Blog: Garden of Ethan   -   Monday November 02, 2009   -   By Ethan

I have grossly miscalculated my ability to keep up with processing all the birds I raised this year. Slipping an extra dozen into the incubator, and then another, and later finding a hen sitting on eggs, all seemed rather innocent and inconsequential this...

Blog: Goat Milk Bath and Beauty   -   Wednesday September 23, 2009   -   By pat@sleepingdogranch.com

Nurture products are our most gentle soaps because they contain only one oil: olive. Known for centuries as a healing oil, olive oil is rich with antioxidants and vitamin E. Both are nutritional powerhouses that protect against age-accelerating free...

Goat World

Blog: Hurricane Farm   -   Friday September 04, 2009   -   By Chris

Sarah, our Toggenburg milk goat, is hopefully an expectant mother. That being the case, it was time to build her a place of her own.  She was living with the sheep, able to come and go in and out of the pasture on the schedule of the cattle, but we...

How Goat Milk Soap Soothes Your Skin

Blog: Goat Milk Bath and Beauty   -   Wednesday August 26, 2009   -   By pat@sleepingdogranch.com
