Life on the Farm - June 2018

Fri, Jun 15th, 2018

Here are some updates from June 2018...

Field Work

It's June 14th, and we're finally catching up on field work.

The silo is full, the hay baled, the corn has been scuffled and manure spread. Now we need some rain.

Here are last of the hay bales coming in from the first cut of hay.

Learn About Our Pigs

Two baby piglets

On May 26th, our sow gave birth.  In posting pictures to Facebook a number of questions were asked.

We put together a blog in June to answer these questions and provide additional information about our pigs.

You can read it here.

Baby Chickadees

On the farm there are a number of nesting boxes for birds.  One such box was home to chickadees.

The left photo is from May 29th, showing 7 baby chickadees.

The photo on the right is from June 5th... they grew fast!
