    Things to celebrate in the new year

    There are some GREAT things happening at Jako Farm right now!  Here are three of our favorites:

    Egg production keeps up with demand

    We’re fully stocked with eggs!  Often in the winter the shorter days, colder weather and predators cause a drastic reduction in egg production.  But not this year!  We’ve got plenty of eggs– both standard and soy-free– and our hens are happily laying.

    CLICK HERE to watch the animals move to new pasture!  They get downright silly.

    Pastures are feeding our livestock

    Ideally, the lush summer and fall grasses can feed our animals all through the winter until spring grasses begin growing again.  However, the last few years grass growth has been meager, and we’ve had to spend tens of thousands of dollars each year buying in winter hay.  Not this year!  Late summer and fall rains created lush grasses, which have fed our animals all winter long.  It’s an ideal scenario, which makes us so happy.

    We have a skunk problem!

    This one is no joke, it’s actually a GOOD thing that we have skunks roaming about.  (Remind yourself of that the next time the farm store has a funny aroma.)  Skunks feed on dung beetles, which are at the top of the soil food chain.  The fact that our farm attracts skunks means that our farm is a diverse habitat for soil creatures…. things we ALL celebrate.
