February Farm Update

February Farm Update

We had our Annual Farm and Family planning meeting in the end of January. It is always a great time of sharing and reviewing. We are hoping that we can implement some of the new things discussed and praying for a fruitful 2019!


January was full of Snow, ice, and frost!

Welcome to the world little calf!

Below is a true story written by Farm Boy Danny.


The Fall

One day Bill was working with his big brother Bob at a rental farm. They had been moving the cows into their field and finally had finished. They now needed to pump water out of a pond into a big yellow tank on a trailer. So bill got on the trailer and had to hold the hose that was coming from the pump while Bob pumped. There was a smaller trough next to it, so when he was done filling up the yellow tank, he moved the hose to the small trough but the hose couldn’t reach far enough. So Bill moved one step more only to slip and fall head first. Thankfully his boot got snagged on a nail and he was dangling in the air of the side of the trailer. Bob came over and un-snagged him and set him on the ground and they got in the truck and went to their house.

Farm Girl Note: March 2017

Farm Girl Note:

    Though the harvest on the farm has slowed down the farmers are keeping busy!;-) Fencing in our entire property (100+ acres) has been a big job but we (and, ahem, hopefully the neighbors 🙂   are enjoying the benefits of secure pens for the cows. It is getting to be less often that when the phone rings we don’t all yell “cows are out!” and head for our shoes before even answering 😉 that used to be quite common at our house. We are grateful for kind neighbors but everyone is much happier with secure perimeters!

Friday we got 12,000 pounds of Chaff Haye delivered. Several of us went over to unload it from the 18 wheeler into our truck and flatbed and then into our storage area.

Flowers blooming and new life on the farm are sure reminders that spring is almost here!

Customer Review:

“Want to tell you all about how wonderful our turkey was! Thank you so much for a moist, tender and flavorful turkey that we all loved and ate sooooo very much of.!!!!!
We enjoyed the beautiful fall day last week and the drive out to pick up the bird and to see your lovely farm in its awesome location.”

~ Satisfied Customer

Farm Girl Note:

 

 

Farming life is so exciting it rarely slows down, but winter is approaching soon where we hope for a little more quiet. This Friday, with several friends, we will be processing our last batch of birds: the Turkeys! Then Saturday we will have a pickup day here on the farm. Turkey pickup day is always a fun day seeing lots of friends and customers along with selling our turkeys.

 

A few days ago two of our boys who usually do the evening turkey chores were out hunting (tis the season), my sister and I headed up to the turkeys. As we drove around the corner of trees we saw that all the turkeys had escaped their fencing and were roaming the whole top of the field and tree line! The sun was sinking

quickly behind them. We had been expecting a quick stop. “I don’t believe it!” laments my sister as we pulled to a stop. Both of us surrounded the flock, opened a part in the fence, and shooed the majority of them inside but there were still about 10 reluctant ones hanging around the outer edge of the fence. As we both turned to get them, the turkeys in the pen began sneaking out! I jumped back to the opening. While Sheila gathered up the last few turkeys I did my best to keep the flock of huge

turkeys in. Over all, after the fence was pinned closed and all the fence stakes stomped in a few more times for extra security, we fed the turkeys and headed to our next task, happy that it would only be about 1 week more of tending to the turkey flock… I’ll share about processing day later though;-).

 

Give thanks both in the good times and bad! Since Thanksgiving is so close I will say that I am thankful for all of our customer and friend support! Without the Lord and you all this farming venture would be impossible! So thank you for supporting our farm and family. What are you thankful for today?

100% A2A2 Herd: New Pricing and Payment Options

Our Father’s Farm Announcing:

100% A2A2 Herd

New Pricing and Payment Options

Effective: 1 January 2016

IMG_3313 (Small)

Raw Milk Super-Food just got even MORE Super 🙂

We are happy to announce that our herd of dairy cattle is now 100% A2A2.  It has been almost 2 years since we discovered the health benefits of A2A2 milk. We began to aggressively test and move our herd toward being 100% A2A2.  Our herd is also 100% grass and greens-fed.  The cows eat only what they find in our pastures and some alfalfa(non-GMO) when they come in for milking, as well as some hay in winter.  We are committed to providing you with the best quality most nutrient dense milk possible.

For the first time in 7 years we are restructuring our herd share, boarding, and labor pricing. For most of you there will be little or no change. For others, there will be a slight change.  

Delivery Fee for all drop sites:

$10 per customer per month.

(Not per Share, but per customer.)

Monthly Boarding Fees

1/2 share  $20

1 share  $40

Each additional share $40

Plastic jugs are $2.50 per share per month.

The one-time initial purchase of a herd share is $50 for half share and $100 for a full share.

Yogurt & Kefir 1qt. Labor $5; 

1pt Cream labor $5;  

1/2lb Butter labor $12; 

1/2lb X-factor Spring Butter $16

Seasonal Milk Option:

For those butter lovers, and those that appreciate the nutrient dense milk that comes from grass fed cows eating growing grasses.  We are now offering a seasonal option.  You will receive your share of milk March – December, then for the three months that the cows are naturally not giving milk because they are awaiting a calf, and when milk production is low because we are feeding hay or dry grass, you will receive a share of butter that was made from spring grass each week instead of your milk.  So for three months of winter you get to enjoy spring (X-Factor) butter.  We hope to offer Cheese as an option in the future.

Housekeeping:

Cleaning Jars: We are dealing with space problems at some of the drop sites.  Please do your best to try and pick up your milk within a day of it being delivered. Also, be very careful to clean and dry jars before dropping off.
If you forget to return your jars, we will have to send the next week’s milk in plastic jugs and charge you $ .75 per jug.

Payments: Starting in January you will receive a monthly invoice statement and will have the option of paying using a credit card or paypal through our website or by calling (There is an additional processing fee).  We still prefer checks or cash 🙂 Many people set up automatic bill pay from their bank.

Thank you so much for choosing us, and for trusting us with this important job of taking care of your cows and providing you and your family with nutrient dense deliciousness.
