Spring has finally sprung on the farm.

Blog: In Town Organics and Summer Fields   -   Wednesday May 07, 2014   -   By Jessica

This is my first blog entry and the first time in months that I've had time to sit and type. In Town Organics is our produce farm and I'm relieved to say that we are taking it easy this year. Due to a new baby human on the farm, vegetable production will be...

Signs of Spring

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Wednesday April 24, 2013   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

After the recent snowing and blowing with cloudy skies, frozen ground, and not even a crocus to greet us, we are all in need of reminders that spring really will come this year.  Enough is enough of winter!  This time last year, the hens were...

Blog: Triton's Farm   -   Monday April 15, 2013   -   By Triton

This week on the farm: LAMBS!!! they have finally started arriving. We have four already and I expect another two to arrive in the next week or so. The moms did great. I didn't have to help or do anything. The babies all look very healthy, and were on...

Spring is Around the Corner..

Blog: Thistle Byre Farm   -   Wednesday March 06, 2013   -   By Abby

New snow fell thickly last night, but the new lambs playing in this morning's snowy cold blanket  remind me that spring is just around the corner. Planting time will be upon us sooner than we realize.  Our grass will begin growing...

Getting ready for winter

Blog: Spencer Sky Farm   -   Friday November 16, 2012   -   By Jauson

As fall fades away into winter there is allot to do here on the farm. Oak leaves cover the plants naturally, so they are well bedded down for their winters sleep. The sheep with their wool coats on still need to have their shelters checked. Any holes...

Full Moon

Blog: Winged Elm Farm   -   Saturday October 06, 2012   -   By Brian

I was standing in the oldest orchard. The light was provided by the full moon. High and staggered clouds were moving across the sky providing a stop and go slide show with the moonlight. And, I was reminded again that one of the principle joys of living in the...

Farm Day just around the corner..

Blog: Skywatcher Farms   -   Tuesday May 29, 2012   -   By Matthew

Well June is just about here.... We butchered over 140 chickens last week, ground most of them (whole) into raw dog food chubs.  Saved some for us and are smoking a few for farm day.  Looks like the chicken side of it is dialed in.  We have...

Bummer lambs love goat milk

Blog: Four Country Gals   -   Tuesday April 10, 2012   -   By Shari

Around here, nothing  goes to waste. Also nothing goes for want.  Sunday night, we picked up 3 little bummers (aka, dogies) from a neighboring sheep farm. They often have "extra" lambs, either from quads, or with black spots on them. The...

Busy week, shearing, more kidding, aquaponics, and...

Blog: Four Country Gals   -   Sunday March 25, 2012   -   By Shari

What a week! With great spring weather,  we've been outside working on projects.  You know  the old adage, work on the farm is never done. Bev built some more feeders for the sheep, and we got those installed. Today we built a creep area for the...

Got lambs, kids, and a NRCS grant

Blog: Four Country Gals   -   Wednesday March 21, 2012   -   By Shari

What a week!  First our ISP gets a little goofy, then our web host does the same... moves us to a new server, and fails to have us change the IP's at the domain registrar. Add to that, one desktop's wireless card fails, as our wireless modem gets a...

This week was a whirlwind... or was it a roller co...

Blog: Four Country Gals   -   Sunday March 11, 2012   -   By Shari

The week began with lambs on the ground. The bad news is that after nearly round-the-clock efforts, we lost both twins. Mama ewe (named Charcoal) never dropped her milk, even though her bag was about to burst. First thing Monday, Bev and Cindy had to take Mom...

First lambs on the ground

Blog: Four Country Gals   -   Monday March 05, 2012   -   By Shari

The first ewes have presented us with a single boy and a pair of twins (boy and girl). I had to assist a little with the twins, as they were quite large and the second one was in a hurry. The head and one foot/leg was out, but stuck, so I gently pulled from...

Baby Time Returns

Blog: Pleasant Valley Farm   -   Wednesday February 29, 2012   -   By Emily

It's a gloomy, soggy way to end February today.  I'm kind of surprised there are not ducks swimming in the backyard today, as there is enough standing water there (and I've seen them do it before!).  But grey days like this always seem a bit cheerier...

What's with this weather? It's lambing and kidding...

Blog: Four Country Gals   -   Sunday February 26, 2012   -   By Shari

All winter long, the temperature has been above normal, the precipitation below level, and even the wind hasn't been too bad.  Now that it's kidding and lambing time, Mother Nature is having her way.  Our sheep are quite pregnant and it's time to...

Lambing

Blog: 123 Farm   -   Friday April 08, 2011   -   By Jan

After waiting for over 6 months due to the adverse weather last spring we now had our first lambs of Cotswold Origin. Cotswold is an old English Breed considered one of the few Gourmet Sheep Meats in the world. After 2 breeeding cycles, we finally had succes...

Springing Ahead

Blog: Pleasant Valley Farm   -   Monday March 14, 2011   -   By Emily

Did you remember to set your clocks ahead this weekend?  Another welcome sign that spring's coming, but I hate it.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy having more daylight in the evenings, but I hate the out of sync feeling you have for a few days.  It...

Lamb races!

Blog: MM Livestock Co   -   Monday February 21, 2011   -   By Megan

There is almost nothing more comical than watching the twice daily lamb races! When the ewes settle in to graze in the morning and again when they come in at dusk the lambs start playing. They race around the flock and then one will get brave! It says to the...
