In 2008 my husband and I decided to try our hand at farming. We had no previous experience at what we were doing except for raising a few laying hens. After all the media hype with E-coli and other strange things in our food we just had a strong desire to know where our food was coming from. We both have full time jobs and a 14 year old son. We have jumped into this with both feet and we are learning as we go. We are interested to hear other people's comments.

Bear and the goats
Saturday was a nice day. It was giving rain but it held off for a while so I went outside to take pictures of the goats and Bear.
Some are just so funny.
Peeper is doing well outside with the other goats, but Bear still thinks he's a chew toy.
Ha Ha Ha! That's a goat? Where's the rest of it?
Ok fine, I'll guard it.
There's a small barn on the hill where the goats graze, but the smaller goats could get underneath it and that freaked me out, plus Pisnak would rub his scurs and he was wrecking the shed.
So we had to put wire around it. I feel safer now. Well I think the goats feel safer now anyway.
Maggie and Azelle are both due in mid- March, by looking at them you'd think that Azelle is due today and Maggie not even bred. The funny thing is that Maggie is due a few days before Azelle. But I find that Azelle carries wide and Maggie carries low.
We'll have to wait and see!
Well part of my plan for this spring is already starting.
Tomorrow Dave is going to pick up our two bull calves!
It's a bit earlier than what I expected, but they'll just be bigger by the end of fall.
