Push Me Pull Ewe

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Friday December 27, 2013   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

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...
