• Celebrating dry ground, story time, and more

    Hooray for solid ground!

    All of us (including the animals) are excited to see the waters recede.  The chickens moved back out to pasture, the cattle and sheep get more freedom to roam, and the farmers are glad to take off the muck boots.

    However, because the pasture was under water for so long, we lost about 50% of our grass population.  (Remember how Daniel has been planting so many different varieties of grasses and native flowers the past few years?)  We’ll wait and see how much of that will re-grow and how much will need to be re-planted.  Native grasses are hearty and can sometimes lie dormant for a while, but the flood waters did cause some serious damage to the native landscape.  We’ll wait and see and hope for the best.

    Preschool story time is so much fun!

    Calling all preschool families– story time is Thursday, June 20 at 10:00am!  Bring a lawn blanket and join us for farm stories, crafts, free play, and a JakoPure snack.  Kids and adults had so much fun at our first story time, it’s something you won’t want to miss.  BYO sack lunch and stay for a while, if you like!

    Cheese curds a’plenty

    We’re making cheese curds as fast as the cows give us milk, and we’ve got plenty in the farm store!  They’re so deliciously tasty, they’ve become one of our most popular varieties of cheese.  Cheese curds don’t stick around long, though, so get yours while the season lasts!
