The snow is gone and things are trying to grow…plants, babies, and our ponds! We’ve traded snows for rains. We are fortunate to have enough rain to fill our ponds and make things a little soggy, we are not flooding like so many others.
We have 3 more Ewes to deliver lambs this year. While our crop of lambs is a bit smaller than we’d hoped the lambs on the ground are happy and bouncing.
Our 2019 piglets have all found new homes and will be headed to them in the next 3 weeks. We do still have 2 breeding quality gilts from 2018 available. These girls will be ready to breed in the fall for spring 2020 litters (new photos coming soon).
We hope the change of the seasons is treating everyone well! One of my favorite part of living on a farm is really seeing the small changes of each season. The changes in the colors of green, the cycle of a season in a plants life, and the change in light. All remind us of the passing of time and the constant state of change. Farm life is a busy and often hard life; but also a good one.
