It has been another great week here at the farm. We are really nailing down the cows rotation schedule as we are opening up new pastures and pathways to connect existing pastures. It's quite fun, like a real life puzzle. We are also in the middle of acquiring a new group of piglets so that we can have pork in stock through the winter and spring. We are using the pigs to clear out some of the forested lots before we go in to thin the timber. The pigs do a great job of clearing land and they are quite hilarious to watch. If you have come to visit, then you know what I mean.

June is upon us and the year is just about half way over. Can you believe it? As the days go by, the farm is shaping up and our vision is taking physical form. We are busy as ever and excited for this month as we have just added a new delivery route heading out west to Chapel Hill, Hillsborough and Greensboro. We also added a new drop location on the Thursday South delivery to Raeford CrossFit gym which we are very excited about. Along with the new delivery route and drop point, you will notice that we will have a new delivery driver so be sure to welcome David Forte to the team. He will be handling our South delivery route starting this Thursday and Brian will continue to handle our West Delivery route every Monday for the time being.

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.
