Good day my fellow readers! Brian Bowen here from Nature’s Roots Farm enjoying a stormy Sunday afternoon. I am sure grateful for today’s rains as are all the plants, trees and vegetables that are growing here on the farm. Since the New Year, I have made it a resolution of mine to disconnect myself from most to all mainstream media and social news sources because I realized everything out there was nothing but junk from the television to internet news. The other day I was getting a couple new tires put on one of our trucks and as I was waiting for my truck the news was on in the waiting room. I was completely shocked and disgusted with the ten minutes of news reports that I listened to. The local news anchors on that particular station were running through a list of local news reports and I swear it was full of reports about death, corruption and drug charges to name a few. I thought to myself, no wonder so many people are scared to death about everything little thing this day in age, the media scares that crap out of its viewers. It sure solidified my New Year’s resolution of eliminating mainstream news from my life.

It's been a busy few weeks here at Nature's Roots Farm. It's so exciting to see new life on the farm and have the opportunity to watch animals grow and mature. This past week we added three new cows to our herd as well as two heifer calves (see pictures above). They have integrated very well and because of this our dairy supply has greatly increased. Additionally, we have been enjoying watching the baby chicks growing quickly (see picture below). There are 100 Cornish Cross & 100 Cornish Reds currently in the brooder and going out to pasture this week. They will be ready for processing in the end of May and beginning of June. We are also getting ducklings, baby turkeys and piglets in the next few weeks so we will share pictures as we integrate them onto our farm.

What’s growin’ on!? Brian here on this beautiful Tuesday afternoon. Although it is still a little chilly first thing in the mornings, we couldn't ask for any better weather to be working in. Over the past couple weeks we have been finishing up some of the projects I mentioned last newsletter and we have been expanding the gardens a bit more. Things are really taking off and we look forward to the yields this year in our gardens and orchards.
