Our kids are growing up almost as fast as our heifer calves. Each day is a new lesson on the farm. Learning to care for our animals is important to being a good farmer, no matter how old you are.
Winter’s coming just around the corner (though you wouldn’t know it by this weather), but we’re not slowing down at all here on the farm.
There’s been work on a farrowing house for our mother pigs.
Here’s Mama Pig with her piglets.
We cut our first hay…
And our cows get to enjoy it.
The goats needed a fence.
We’ve had a lot of brush to clear.
And of course, a few calves have been born recently.
Our lovely Sophia with little Sammy
Lucy, the first calf born on our farm, has now given birth to her own first calf, Ladybug.
Ladybug invites a friend to breakfast.
Fifi, ever the protective one, had her calf in secret, and it took us a little while to find little Suellen.

This is Renee’s little Dew Drop
But even with all this work, we still have time for a little fun.
Eeyore (front left) often leaves his calf herd in the pasture to come visit Jack (back right), whose job it is to protect the goats.
We know you folks like to see what our girls are up to, so here’s some pictures of our ladies and their calves living it up on the farm.
Some of our girls enjoying alfalfa after milking.
