Meanwhile, Back at the Farm

It has been a while since I posted anything period, let alone anything about the farm. Things are just kind of perking along. We still have 4 pens of chickens out on pasture. I have started letting the turkeys out of their field pen into their poultry netting cell during the daytime. I have 13 little pigs down in the greenhouse barn. And the cows are across the road grazing the little bit of grass that grew back after the first cutting of hay back in June. It has been a less than stellar year as far as grass production goes, but we should make it through to Thanksgiving or so without having fed any hay. So I guess a miss is as good as a mile. It sounds like lots of places have been a lot drier than here. We have been aquiring freezers for the store like crazy. I am going this morning to pick up 2 more. That will bring the total up to 4 chest freezers, 4 uprights, 1 two door commercial upright and a 6 by 7 walk in that we still need to set up. Plus the two that we have for our own use in the cellar. The store is starting to look like a used appliance warehouse.

Thanks for the update--animal pictures always lighten my heart. Greetings from northeast Wisconsin.

Consider yourself lucky to have grass to get you to Thanksgiving. We've been feeding hay for a couple of months or more already! Part of that is that our stocking density has increased, but we had a very very dry June & July.
