Farm Girl Note:

I love the Christmas season! But it is so polluted with loud music, Santa and candy. What’s the real reason for Christmas?

There are many traditions Americans use to celebrate Christmas such as,

Giving Gifts

Eating special foods

Decorating with lights, greenery and red berries or ribbon…

Writing wish lists for Santa etc.

But what is the main reason? What is the true meaning of Christmas!

It’s celebrating Christ coming! Joy to the world Jesus is born!

It is Joy! This is the most exciting thing ever! Because the Lord was born and lived and died we can now have everlasting life! Jesus came and died for our sin! He died for me and you!

Joy! To the world!  Merry Christmas!

~Hope

Farm Girl Note:

 

Boy! Down here on Our Father’s Farm we have been so busy! The mornings are always full of chores inside and out which include milking all 23 of our wonderful cows, cleaning everything up and putting up the milk.  We quickly get to the rest of the chores–tending the flock of about 200 laying hens, tending to four different flocks of chickens and turkeys and feeding milk to eight cute calves! Then, the rest of the days are full of whatever needs to be done–making butter, moving cows etc. This is a very, very busy time here on the farm but we are all enjoying it!  And we all hope that you are enjoying the fruits of our labor.

What is so Different about Our Father’s Farm Dairy herd?

- Our Cows are raised on fresh pasture.

- The heifer calves nurse on their mothers for 10 months! This allows for good immune system, full rumen development, and fat cells to be fully developed and filled for life. These little calves are the dairy cows of the future so we take very good care of them and make sure they’re raised as naturally and sweetly as possible.

- The cows are only fed grass (99% of diet), Organic alfalfa pellets and very occasionally organic dairy ration!

- Most of our cows are A2A2, our goal is to be 100% A2A2. You can get A2A2 milk for an extra $5 management/testing fee.

    We continue striving to raise and offer the highest quality healthy products for our customers. We offer only what we would give to our own children!  And that’s a very high standard :-).

Farm Girl Note:

My favorite season for cows is the late spring summer and early fall.  Because we always have new little calves being born! So often you go out in the field to tend the herd and you meet a new little addition to the farm! I really enjoy being able to watch these happy beautiful calves frisk about and live their little simple lives. 

I remember the very first calf that was born on our farm. We were so excited! As soon as we heard the news all of us ran out into the cold snowy evening to see the first little Calf of Our Father’s Farm! We were so thrilled to see how the Lord had blessed us with our first little calf!

~Hope

Our First little calf , We named  Him G. B. (for ground beef.)

Turkey Reservations Available!

Posted by The Fuhrmanns on Aug-19-2014

From Our Farm to Your Fork

Our Father’s Farm has turkeys!

Reserve yours Now!

Reserve early and you can choose the size of your turkey!

We know it is a little early to be thinking about your thanksgiving turkey… But at Our Father’s Farm, we just picked up our little Turkey chicks!

“It was the best turkey our family ever tasted! And more meat then we’d ever seen!”

-Customer Testimony

NON SOY or NOT? You can choose:

If you would like a NON SOY turkey this year then please notify us Soon! We will raise a smaller amount of NON SOY turkeys and the rest will be fed a non GMO feed that has soy in it. 

Email us!

NOTE: ALL TURKEYS RAISED On OUR FATHER’S FARM ARE NON GMO, pastured and never medicated!  And incidentally, delicious!! :)

What’s different about Our Father’s Farm Turkeys?

From a young age these little chicks are raised on NON GMO feed. They stay in a nice airy brooder for two weeks while they grow feathers and mature. They are soon moved out to the field where they enjoy fresh air, grass and bugs! These turkeys live strong happy and healthy lives here! They are never given antibiotics, medications, or GMOs. 

 

Reserving and picking up my Special O.F.F Turkey:

To reserve your turkey:

- Simply

Email    or    Call us: (434)-656-1188

$4.95/lb. The Turkeys will be between 14 & 20 pounds. A $20 deposit will reserve you a Turkey, then you come with the family out to the farm on the Saturday before Thanksgiving to pick up your Turkey freshly cleaned and ready for cooking. Some choose to freeze and save it for Christmas. 

TO RESERVE YOUR TURKEY, CLICK HERE.

We will be posting more news about the Saturday pick up day. It is usually a wonderful day full of fun things to do and see on the farm! 

WARNING: We only have a limited amount of turkeys so don’t miss you chance to order the best turkey for your thanksgiving

Farm Girl Note:

When turkeys are younger they are very vulnerable to sickness and need to be Carefully taken care of. But when they are older they are so hardy that they will not use a shelter!

Well one cold fall day we were expecting a heavy rain fall.

We knew the turkeys would not use there shelter even if it did rain and get very cold.

So for that night Dad moved our Cattle trailer into the turkey pen and all of us went and helped chase every one of those big turkeys into our Cattle trailer for the night.

We had fun doing it and we did not loose any turkeys that night!”

How the Open House/Field Day went

Posted by The Fuhrmanns on May-9-2014

We are praising the Lord for his goodness and  mercy in allowing us such a perfect day for the Open House/Field day! He enabled the right people to come and everything to get set up and done exactly how He wanted!

 

Here are some of the pictures that were taken of the fun day!

We are thankful to everyone that made the effort to come out and visit us for the day!

 

With about 300 attendants, lots of sales, lots of fun and lots of learning! The day was a great success!

song: author unknown.

“When He moves among us, all that he dos, all of his goodness, and all of his love;

if the pen of the writer could write every day, even this world could never contain how I have been blessed.

The warmth in the winter the flowers  of spring, the laughter in summer; and the changing of leaves, oh I have been blessed!…”

Spring is in the air!

by Sheila Fuhrmann

It’s what chases off the cold,

It’s the season of new birth;

It makes the colors bold,

And brings life from dismal earth.

All earth is full of light,

And grows without a care;

Life  sing with all your might,

For… spring is in the air!

wishing you a…

Great Pyrenees Puppies!

Posted by The Fuhrmanns on Mar-18-2014

Our Father’s Farm

Great Pyrenees Live Stock Guarding Dogs

 

We have 10 Great Pyrenees puppies 8 males and 2 females

Born: March, 10th 2014

Price:  $350

The dogs are raised on our farm with chickens, cows, cats, other dogs, and our family.  They are being raised on a very healthy, mostly raw diet during the weaning process.

They will be ready for pick up at 8 weeks. May 4th, 2014.

To reserve a puppy, a $50 deposit is required

If you have any questions please call or email us

Tel: 434-656-1188  Email: greatpyrenees@ourfathersfarmva.com

The great pyrenees puppies are so cute and sweet! They were only born a week ago!

These are great live stock guarding dogs! Our chickens can prove to it!

Before we had Great Pyrenees dogs we were losing so many chickens to predators such as raccoon, opossums, foxes and the worst of all Owls and hawks! The owls & hawks were worst because it is illegal to kill or hunt them!

When we got our first live stock guardian dogs named Bear and Bella. These big dogs simply have to let out a BIG bark to scare away most animals. And even better, these dogs love what they do! But you have to be careful to make sure from when they are puppies to keep them working with your animals so that they can create the great bond that is necessary!

Snow!

Posted by The Fuhrmanns on Feb-22-2014

We have been enjoying sledding in the snow! But chores are a bit tougher for the animals and us :)

Here is a little glimpse of what

“Our Father’s Farm and the Fuhrmann Family” have been doing!

Snow is beautiful and we have enjoyed it so much! All the seasons are so wonderful and God was so kind to make them for us. Just as soon as you get tired of one another comes! One of my favorite parts of winter is the Snow! As it spreads out over the land and trees white and pure and clean, it reminds us of  God’s love and forgiveness that He spreads abroad in our hearts and lives.

Here are a few pictures

Great is Thy faithfulness, oh God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be.
