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.

News: 

Outside during the winter it is quiet and still down here on the farm.  Everyone does their best to stay warm:) But inside it is quite a different thing! Everyone is bustling around with their daily duties and lessons.  We just started up music lessons again and are all thoroughly enjoying it! The house is now filled with music almost all the time with six children practicing! Winter is a wonderful time for us to do lots of book work! For the spring summer and fall months are always full of fun hard work learning lots outside and tending our flocks and herds:) Living on a farm has its ups and downs but at the end of the day, when you fall into you bed, you really feel like your day was profitable and you are always learning new lessons that will help all your life! Wherever you are and whatever you do there are always ups and downs in life. But the most important thing is to not worry and trust in the LORD!  Take each moment and cherish it!  Time flies and before you know it you will be in a different place.  Let’s live without regrets and  treasure the most important things:  God and People.  So be happy now and share the LOVE of  Christ to all!

Pasture raised chicken is one of the best ways to stay healthy this season! 

 

Be sure to order some chicken and after you have enjoyed it your favorite way be sure to keep the bones!

 

Put all the bones (after you have taken all the meat off) in a pot and cover the bones with water, then add a little salt and that is it!

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!

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.)

Spring is in the air!

Hope and Dasiy

Hope and Daisy May.

Daffodowndilly

by A.A. Milne

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
“Winter is dead.”

“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!

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!

The first year of a puppy’s life is full of eating sleeping and growing! These great Pyrenees grow so much in the first 8 weeks we have them.

Above: When the puppies got older we would take a few at a time and bring them in with the little chicks we were raising at the time. Teaching them to not chase or bite them. They had a good time.
