Dairy production is finished for 2019! Focusing now on fiber and art, as well as preparations for winter. All of the hay is in the barn, and the wool coats on those sheeps get thicker by the day.
The farm store will be open this week (8/25-8/31)! Tuesday 9-3, Wednesday 9-6, and Thursday 9-6. Feta, yogurt, and ice cream in stock now… cheddar curds and more ice cream by later in the week!
All the critters are doing well in their woolly coats! Winter brings a focus on a few different projects before lambing and milking time in February. I’ve been processing some of the backlog of wool we’ve got stored up, resulting in some handspun yarn and some handmade felt-covered journals for sale on Etsy. We’re also working on getting prints of some of Sophie’s art to have available… stay tuned.

On the fence line. Welcome to Egret and Emmaline, who are settling in and planning to augment next year’s milking crowd!
Dry-off is beginning for this year’s milking flock, which means that cheese, yogurt, and ice cream production is winding down. Construction continues on the barn roof, and soon breeding for 2019 lambs will start!
