Hey y’all! We hope everyone made it safely through the storm this past weekend. We had steady rains but not major damage. Its been sad around here the past few days as we lost one of our momma’s on Saturday during the storm. When we moved the cows to the new pasture, this cow slipped going into the trailer and injured herself. It didn't seem like a fracture because she was able to get up after but didn’t stay up long. We were tending to her over the past week but the storm did her in. We gave her a respectful composting burial.

Can you believe that Autumn is already upon us? The heat finally broke and the temperature is just right for the working days to ensue. Not that we haven't been workin', its just pleasant to be outside this time of the year, all day and through the night. We have been working diligently to keep things progressing here at the farm. I am getting garden beds built so that we can start to grow more of our own produce and perhaps even have some to offer to our patrons in the near future. I like planning layouts and designing gardens to grow copious amounts of food. Although I have been focusing on livestock in the recent past, I have an affinity for food forests, edible landscapes and getting my hands in the dirt. I can tell Willow has the eye for it too. Can’t wait till she can start making herself toward the garden and maybe eat some dirt. That's right, you know why small kids put so many things in their mouths; including dirt? To build their immune systems. If you were to research this statement, you would want to look up the “Terrain Theory” versus the “Germ Theory” to find out more information on this subject.
