Bountiful & Beautiful
Hello Members and Friends,
Been a busy but great week with a lot happening.
Still hauling hay off the fields to stockpile for the coming Winter feeding. It's using up most of my time and is a little boring going back and forth, loading, unloading but all is going well. As I go I'm letting the cows onto the fields to clean up skips and regrowth of alfalfa and growth along the fence boundaries. Still have a few days left. And still have more fence repairs to fit in.
Will be hauling some pigs to the processor tomorrow so will be busy catching, sorting and loading about four of them. Also sold 5 feeder pigs to another farmer for him to finish for his customers. Will be processing some beef in a couple weeks.
Have had several people come by for farm visits. Always enjoy showing visitors around the ranch. First time a lot of children have ever been close up to real farm animals. Visiting the berry patches is also always a winner. Some folks buy meat or veggies when they visit. One visitor was a new CSA Member that just moved here with family from Alaska. Her and her two girls were really fun to show around! Plans to visit again with her Husband. We're looking forward to supplying them in the future weeks.
It's starting to dry out and get dusty again. Thankful there's been no fire smoke like the last two years. Plan to start some more Fall field over seeding early this Fall if all goes well. Hope to thicken the existing Alfalfa stands with some other compatible plants.
Great to have some new Members. The gardens are getting even more bountiful and beautiful, though the weeds are growing like crazy too! Lets take a look at what we plan to deliver this week.
