Sunshine is our friend

Blog: Clayton Farmers' Market and Small Farm Animals   -   Thursday July 10, 2014   -   By Janice

NE Washington weather has been ideal for our gardens, as long as we have enough water to assist in the growing process.  However, this past week has seen the average day temps in the mid 90's - the vegetables are able to 'cool down' somewhat in the...

Spring time in NE Washington State

Blog: Clayton Farmers' Market and Small Farm Animals   -   Thursday May 22, 2014   -   By Janice

We were contacted last week about weaner pigs - we did raise hogs for over 40 years; however, we no longer have hogs on our farm.  Our long time friends about 50 miles north of us still raise pigs - they were contacted and were willing to sell weaners to...

A long time between writings!

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Wednesday October 02, 2013   -   By Ann

  It's been a very long time since I've written in here!  A lot has happened in that time.  New neighbors, changes on the farm, and weird weather, to name a few.   I have new neighbors all around the mountain.  Luckily they are all...

Under The Fence

Blog: Dark Water Ranch   -   Friday September 27, 2013   -   By shepherd

Recently, we have done dramatic changes to the goat/sheep barn. The new design has alleys that have gates and goes to individual stalls and the milk room. Gates mean we can shut off areas that we don’t want anyone going into. However, there are a couple of...

We have moved our herd of dairy goats.

Blog: Organic Goat Farming   -   Thursday September 19, 2013   -   By Thomas

We have moved our herd of Shalom dairy goats.  We have moved to  the Cumberland County so we're still in Tennessee.  We have three breeds of goats, LaMancha, Nubian and Saanen.  I was hoping to find a Sable Buck to breed to our Two Saanen...

Is it summer yet?

Blog: Scotch Creek Farm   -   Friday June 07, 2013   -   By Carrie

I don't know if a farmer ever gets caught up with the farm. I know I don't. I have learned to be a little more tolerant of weeds as they have been helpful in drought years. I have learned that when you have 5 dozen (extra) eggs you NEED by the weekend 5 hens...

Rainy days

Blog: Scotch Creek Farm   -   Friday May 10, 2013   -   By Carrie

Rainy days are a challenge to me here at the farm. The goats hate the rain, the chickens don't really care for it either. The cows graze away as if it was as sunny as a summer day. I don't like to garden in the rain, the dirt sticks to you and you track in mud...

You're Kidding

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Wednesday May 01, 2013   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

Well, actually right now we’re lambing, but there is a “new kid on the block” at our farm this spring.  And no, I’m not kidding—he’s a goat! The story really begins with a sheep—Sweet Pea—who was one of a set of triplets born last...

Busy Days

Blog: Sisters Heritage Farms   -   Saturday April 20, 2013   -   By Lisa

We are busy here at the farm!  We have new chicks that are growing fast, they will be laying this fall.  We also have three sweet baby goats.  Our pigs continue to grow, we will likely have piglets this summer!  We continue to produce great...

Bring on Spring!

Blog: Bloom Where You're Planted Farm   -   Wednesday March 13, 2013   -   By Teresa

We survived the long winter, and although we're still melting from a surprise snowstorm over the weekend we know Spring is just around the corner! We had a very successful fall 2012 season.  So many new friends came to the farm and we are thankful for...

The kids are coming

Blog: Blue Spoon Farm   -   Wednesday January 16, 2013   -   By Jacalyn

It's January 16, 2013 and we are waiting for the arrival of our kids. We are expecting about 20 kids in the next 2 weeks or so. Anyone intersted in purchasing an American Boer Goat Association registerred buckling for their farm is encouraged to order...

Goats Galore!

Blog: Zekiah Farms, LLC   -   Sunday January 13, 2013   -   By Thorne

Goats Galore! The girls at Zekiah Farms have been busy kidding around.  We have kids everywhere.  This is our favorite time of year, there isn’t anything cuter then kids running around and playing.

The Perfection in Silence

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Thursday December 13, 2012   -   By Ann

This evening after I was done feeding all the animals, I just stopped and listened for a few minutes.  It was absolutely still and quiet out.  I just stood there and absorbed the silence.  The snow on the trees and ground was muffling all sound,...

Time to Vent

Blog: Pine Needle Farm   -   Monday October 15, 2012   -   By Ann

This entry is about the poor quality with which things are made these days.  A couple of months ago I had to buy a new weed-eater.  The one we'd had for 16 years died.  I bought a new one of the same brand, since the old one had lasted so long...
