We recently gained a new herd member. She is a Jersey cow named Velvet (pictured to the left), who has added even more cream to the sweet delicious milk. It makes wonderful mozzarella.
We've been quite busy since the last posting.
We had our fall "stripping" of the garden a few days before frost. Then of course was deer season - I bagged 2. We've had the building of a bigger chicken-coop to house all of our chickens. Unfortunately for some of those chickens (the roosters) they will get to become dinner guests. I will likely can most of them to save freezer space. Currently we are shifting things around and getting ready to kick it into high gear in January when all the baby goats start being born. There will be several sleepless nights and lots of round the clock feedings no matter what the weather is then. Hopefully it won't be extremely cold, but if it is, we'll be ready.
