Farm Updates Lately time has been flying by and everyday seems to get busier and busier. The animals are doing great and the family is doing even better. We have been getting sporadic help to work with us on various projects here at the farm. The last visitor we had was a young woman from Nova Scotia we found through the WWOOFUSA.ORG website. She worked very well with us and really picked up our routine right from the beginning. Even though we only had her help for a week, it was awesome to have her and it looks like she may return for a longer stay in the Fall and work with us through our internship program and also to help with baby Willow.

Farm Updates: We can't believe it's already been 5 weeks since we made the transition to NC. Things are steadily coming together and business is starting to pickup. The cows are doing well here at the new farm and have adjusted very nicely to a daily routine. The piggies have been working non-stop on clearing the greenery and are rooting up a storm. Last week our layers arrived down the road to Healthy Hen Farms to be brooded and we also purchased 75 guinea keets as a natural tick control that are also in the brooder at Healthy Hen Farms. The laying hens will start to lay eggs in about 21 weeks so be looking for our eggs on the website in the Fall. Although we do not currently have enough eggs to sell from our 6 chickens at the moment, we are getting soy-free, certified organic eggs from Healthy Hen Farms to supplement until our layers are producing so you can find those on our website now.

Another week down in the books and Nature's Roots Farm is rockin' and rollin'!! The cows and chickens are doing great and we added a group of nine pigs to the mix. I felt like I was missing something the first month here on the new farm and when I got my first group of pigs, my soul felt complete. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my cows and laying hens but something about the pigs just invigorates me and puts a smile on my face every day I check on them.
