A lot has happened on the farm in just a short time. Weather has been an issue at times, but we are making do.

All the sheep have had their babies. For our first lamb of the year we reached out to all our Facebook fans to help with her name. We were stuck between Gwen and Iris. It was a close call but Iris was the winner. Read More

All Hamburger is NOT Created Equally

All Hamburger is Not Created Equally 

For your health, it is best to know where your meat comes from. Did you know one hamburger readily available to you might come from many different cows? Ground beef is usually a mixture of meat from different cows. The meat that is mixed into burger could be coming from multiple cows all over the country. This definitely raises the risk for contamination of E. coli and antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Making Syrup

Maple syrup was being made on this farm back in the 1800’s. So, five years ago we decided to give it a try. It’s a very fun process, and we’ve learned a lot along the way. Unfortunately, this year has been tough for syrup making. It has been too warm for the processes and we had to battle the bugs. We may not have as much syrup as we were hoping, but we have enough to last us another year. Read More

Pork

Let me just say that I am currently procrastinating by doing other work. OoopsI’d much rather write a post for you, than a paper for class. I think you understand.

Our business is growing and we like to keep you updated and informed about what we do. A few days ago I realized we haven’t talked much about our pork. How could we neglect such an important thing? I’m here to fix that mistake. Read More

Return of the Beef!

The time has come! This is like a special celebration, the day we pick up our meat from the processor. We arrived home and were excited to again have a freezer full of options.

Being farmers, who raise beef cattle, you would think we would never run out of meat. Sadly, the unfortunate event happened and our freezer was void of beef.
