Farm Girl update: September 2018

Farm Girl update: September 2018

 Life on the farm has been wonderful this summer! Lots of new calves, little kittens, and puppies. We are excited to announce the newest member of the Our Father’s Farm team little Brianna Kate. Josh and Maddie are excited parents and we are all thrilled grandparents, uncles, and aunties. We are so grateful for a healthy safe birth and are enjoying this adorable little bundle of joy!

Below is the first part of a true story on the farm written by one of the farm boys:

EMERGENCY ON THE FARM!

Part 1:

    One muddy, rainy winter morning, a tractor swayed through the field with two great bales of hay on it, the driver was a boy of about fourteen years of age, his name was Edmund. He was on the way to feed the last batch of family milk cows. The mud made it difficult to drive, so taking it slowly, he plowed on through the mud and rain. It took some time to get there going so slowly, but at last the cow field came in sight. As the tractor rumbled up to the fence, Edmund saw something that looked out of the ordinary… he strained his eyes to see better, then he realized that it was a cow lying on its back slightly stuck in a low part of the field. He sat up in the seat and slowed the tractor to a crawl. He detected a slight movement, the only sign of life. He needed to act quickly as he thought: “The cow may not have much longer to live!” Edmund knew the cow was too massive for him to pull out alone. So, thinking fast, he turned the tractor and headed down the narrow driveway to where the cows were milked and where he knew he could find help! As he swung onto the driveway, he jerked the throttle back setting the tractor in full tilt. The rain stung his eyes and face, it whipped up around the wheels sending a spray of water wildly up in Ed’s face. As he drove into sight of the barn he began honking the tractor horn and yelling “there’s a cow about to die”!… Stay tuned for part 2!

A Lab Puppy from Our Father’s Farm is a friend you will cherish for years. Labrador Retrievers have an enduring reputation for gentle temperament, ease of handling and training, intelligence and loyalty. They are truly the perfect family pet!

We breed for quality in health and not quantity of puppies.

We raise our dogs and allow them to have puppies because we love and need them and want to share them with others. Dogs raised in a loving environment, well socialized with all ages of people and animals are rare today. Another wonderful thing is that our puppies stay with their mothers for at least 8 weeks of nursing. Their weaning process starts naturally using raw cows milk, meat, eggs and other of our beyond organic fresh farm foods. Our local vet does our new puppy checks and says that they are some of the healthiest pets she has ever seen.  Another customer commented, a year after purchasing one of our pups,  that a friend of his had a lab the same age which had been dealing with all kinds of health issues, but his puppy was in perfect health.    It is well known that the diet and upbringing any creature experiences from birth through childhood makes a life time difference in the health and immune system of the adult! We believe this very strongly and at Our Father’s Farm we seek to mimic the way things were divinely designed to function. We have been doing what we do for almost 7 years now and have seen the fruit of hard labor again and again as we observe and enjoy superior health in the animals on the farm.

Reserve your puppy! The puppies are $995 ready to go home on 9/1/18

Farm Girl Note: Spring 2018

Farm Girl Note: Spring 2018

Spring dawned over a snow covered Our Father’s Farm! We were amazed at having 2 snows in the month of March. As the days grow warmer and sunnier all our spring tasks begin. Several of the guys worked hard on fencing in about 36 acres in a new rental property. We are looking forward to moving a herd of cows over there soon.

March brought about a special 2-week trip for Jack, Kim, Sheila, and Hope to central Africa. Thank you to everyone who joined them, and the family left at home through your prayers! The trip was an amazing encouragement and the farm did well while they were away. Highlights of the trip included, spending time with missionaries, getting to see national friends from years ago, meeting new nationals, helping with projects, visiting a farm in a nearby village, visiting a wild animal park, visiting an orphanage, and much more!

This week on the farm, we are working on a few new products to present soon, chicks will be arriving, and lots of fixer upper projects are in process. We are getting excited about our Annual Field Day coming up! Be sure to put it on your calendars.

Farm Girl Note: Winter on the Farm

Farm Girl Note: Winter on the Farm

The end of last year brought the wedding of Josh our farm manager who was married to Maddie. An exciting feat for the whole family and Maddie (Wilson) has already made a wonderful addition to the farm and family! The holiday was a busy and good time and now here we are in 2018!

The first week of the year brought frigid weather to our area. Temps were down to almost zero in the night and morning when we did chores. The animals as well as the people had to work hard to stay warm, and survive the unusual cold front! Every water line and animal watering trough would be frozen up in minutes! Our new year’s annual planning meetings were held and exciting hopes for this year were discussed. We are excited to see what the Lord has in store for 2018 and are also thankful to be back to more normal weather as well! 😊

Farm Girl Note: A Moon-lit Cow Chase

As you all probably know our farm manager (& brother) Josh is engaged to be married in November. Well, he was able to go visit his fiancé a few days ago and just a few hours after he left we got a call that some cows were out. Several of us got in the van and drove three-quarters of a mile away to where the cow’s pasture is. In the glare of the headlights, we spotted our bull and seven other cows next to the road munching on the neighboring field. We hopped out and began shooing them up the road and back to our field; it was so dark we could hardly see the dark outline of the cows against the horizon. We split up and I soon was alone chasing the bull and two cows up the hill and then into the gate of our pasture which should be an easy task. 😊 as we walked up the road the bull began this awful low angry bellow as I waved and shooed at him, I soon realized that cows in our other herd across the road were in heat and our bull was upset that he could not get to them. He ran up to the fence around the buildings with the cows following him. Finally, after chasing them around with our little phone lights we were able to get them into our field and secure. We wearily walked home under a beautiful canopy of stars and wondered why the cows always get out when Josh is gone…? It’s still a question we’re asking and were worried about the week-long honeymoon that is coming up and guessing what kind of adventures we’re bound to have when he’s not here to manage things 🙂 It makes you appreciate all a person does when they’re not around. Very thankful for family, for life, and for our gracious God! Happy Thanksgiving time!
