Happy Cattle :)
Hello Friends and Members,
More rain every few days which are a big help to the pasture. Starting to do Fall projects and chores to get ready for cold weather coming soon. Also still staying busy making equipment repairs and working on some improvements to the house and garage.
Cattle doing really great this Fall. No smoke and good range and pasture moisture. Unusual for this time of year but very welcome! With the moisture the cows are eagerly consuming the standing grain and Peas I planted for pasture last Fall. Before the rains they turned their nose up at it and went for the alfalfa regrowth instead.
Quite a few orders coming in for Custom Beef and Pork. Limited on livestock available at this time so if your interested in some meat for Winter better get your order in soon.
Also time to order holiday meat items like large roasts and turkey's. Last year we ran out of turkeys by Thanksgiving. We also have geese and duck which some folks prefer. Thankfully our poultry haven't been bothered too much by predators this year. Also far less visits of deer and other varmints to the garden. Pretty sure this is because of the activities of our new stock dog. She likes to play watch dog and whenever we let her run free she insists on doing a tour of all the areas around the farmstead.
Haven't done any field work yet this Fall. Plan to start in a couple weeks if this rain continues. Also hope to renovate some pasture areas and add more forage plant varieties.
Have several new Members for the next 12 week CSA Quarter. We hope to keep the program going into the future as long as physically and financially possible. Please tell your friends who are health conscious about us!
