Inside the egg mobile gathering eggs….see below for note on lower egg production
Baby chicks arrived….helping Daddy pick them up at the post office last Tuesday
Did you know that seed potatoes are often treated? We make sure to use untreated, certified organic seed potatoes for our beyond organic production.
The beauty of the evening chore time
Just finished a cattle chase with a visiting friend: Thank you!
This week on the farm….
Our whole team is still rejoicing and praising the Lord over the safe and healthy delivery of a dear little blessing from the Lord to Derrick & Jennifer. Stop by the market for pictures of this precious little girl.
We had a wonderFUL week complete with visits from several different dear friends. Good times together and lots of memorable work projects….chasing cows, planting, packaging chicken, etc!
Our second to last shipment of chicks arrived this past Wednesday. Hard to believe we’re nearing the end of another fantastic season. Lettuce greens are coming in great along with a wonderful sweet potato harvest.
We had a great farm tour this past Saturday. Contact us if you would like to get in on the next tour.
Raising egg layers on a smaller scale can result in ebb & flow in production. Due to malting chickens, we’re in a low production time. This can last anywhere from 2-6 weeks or even a bit longer though we are working to help the poor hens out in an effort to help them get back to the production we all appreciate. Meanwhile, we apologize for the inconvenience but appreciate your understanding. At the latest, we expect production to resume more normal rates in mid/late November. Until then, you will likely have to find other sources. We will keep you posted as production increases.
seeing the cartons of chicks reminds me of my childhood on a chicken farm.
Well done writeup on your farming practices. I am impressed.
Best sugar snap peas I have ever bought. As good as the ones I raised myself.
Yes children are a precious gift.
