The Egg

Blog: Miolea Organic Farm   -   Tuesday March 02, 2010   -   By Brian

The Egg, We’ve only been raising Rhode Island Red hens for the past four years.  In that time we’ve harvested close to ten thousand eggs.  Some eggs are perfect in shape, size and look.  Smooth brown shells, no blemishes, no...

Winter and Snow

Blog: Hurricane Farm   -   Tuesday January 12, 2010   -   By Chris

Winter has set in and we have a solid covering of snow.  Looks like we'll be covered until the maple sap is running in March!  It snowed earlier than usual and has been colder than usual.  Such a combination has resulted in a nice white blanket...

Pairs on Snow

Blog: Ebersole Cattle Company   -   Sunday December 27, 2009   -   By ShanenEbersole

  Just thought you might enjoy a dusk shot of next year's Grass-Fed Beef out on pasture with their cows.  When it snows we roll out grass on top of the snow so they have some fresh food. We have about 2 feet of snow right now, so we are...

Chickens, Chickens, Everywhere!

Blog: Cowmomma's Cupboard   -   Sunday December 27, 2009   -   By Cowmomma

Most folks are going to be inclined to buy "free range" or "pasture raised" chicken or eggs, if they are available and reasonably priced.  I think customers want their food animals to have good lives and humane care.  We have had...

A Visit to the Winter Farmer's Market

Blog: Hurricane Farm   -   Tuesday December 15, 2009   -   By Chris

We'll be at the Coventry Winterfresh Farmer's Market in Coventry, CT this coming Sunday, December 20.  The market has been running for a couple of weeks, and we will be making our first appearance on the first Sunday of Winter!  The market runs...

NEW: Chicken Sponsorship!

Blog: Jacob's Reward Farm   -   Monday December 14, 2009   -   By Cindy

One of our fiber CSA shareholders inspired the Chicken Sponsorship Program:  Here's how it works: We buy a ready-to-lay pullet and feed her for a year. You get a Sponsor Certificate (suitable for framing!) and a card with ten punch spaces on it. I'll...

Thanksgiving

Blog: Uwharrie Farm   -   Monday November 09, 2009   -   By Judy

     When I was a child, Thanksgiving on the farm was a special time.  Mom got up very early to chop onions and celery for the traditional dressing that was stuffed inside the large turkey which she always baked for Thanksgiving. ...

The Delaware Chicken Experiment Results

Blog: Pleasant Valley Farm   -   Thursday September 17, 2009   -   By Emily

As promised, the results are in on our heritage chicken experiment!  Normally, our Cornish-Rock hybrid chickens are processed at 7 or 8 weeks of age, but our Delaware rooster was about 7 months old.  Because of this, we wanted a cooking method to...

Beware of "Free Range"

Blog: Miolea Organic Farm   -   Wednesday September 09, 2009   -   By Brian

Okay, maybe this is another rant against the industrial food complex, but I was brought up to stand up for what is right and not to sit back when someone was in trouble. My parents raised all of their kids to treat everyone...

Free-Range Skunk

Blog: Hurricane Farm   -   Tuesday July 21, 2009   -   By Chris

Upon returning from a much anticipated and highly successful "boys only" camping trip with my son, Liev, to the Green Mountain National Forest in Vermont, we remarked that we still smelled the odor of the skunk that took up residence under the porch...

New Additions to the Farm

Blog: Boardtown Organics   -   Wednesday May 27, 2009   -   By Greg

     I was considering getting some baby chicks this fall and raise them through the winter so that they would begin laying eggs next spring.  Well, I ran across a very good deal on 86 Rhode Island Red baby chicks this past...

The hens are here! Hooray for AWESOME EGGS

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Thursday April 30, 2009   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

It was about 2 weeks ahead of what we thought, but as usual, Team Trautman got the job done and got the hens situated in the hen house. Some times it seems it's just as well for us to have it happen all of a sudden. Things get done. Eggs for the next two...

Moo

Blog: Hurricane Farm   -   Tuesday March 31, 2009   -   By Chris

I came home yesterday to find a bale of wood shavings ripped open and spilled across the barn floor.  Hmm, I thought, I wonder how that happened?  Then I saw some ripped paper in the stall with the cattle...Apparantly, they enjoy brown paper almost...

Chickens, Chickens, Everywhere

Blog: Cowmomma's Cupboard   -   Wednesday March 18, 2009   -   By Cowmomma

Today we have more open ground than snow covered turf and the chickens are out of the coop and back at work.  Reddy was out in the front pasture before it was even fully light this morning.  I don't think she trusts that the snow won't come back and...

Our Rooster, The "Terrorist"

Blog: The Call Again Farm Journal   -   Monday December 01, 2008   -   By Laura

Our rooster is a terrorist.  Perhaps not in the context of America's War on Terror, but he sure terrorizes us!  His name is King Louis XIV, because he has a beautiful red comb like the rising sun, and King Louis XIV was called "The Sun...
