What better way to celebrate the First Day of Spring (one day early), then to send three does home with their new family! Three delightful children, all excited to hold their goats! It's always sad to say goodbye to the little ones, but it's also a banner day when they go home with a family we know will love and care for them every day of their lives!
Here is Lucy... (formerly known as Pistol). She was our first born kid of 2016!
This pure white doeling has been named Ethel... don't you just love that? (she is the spitting image of OUR Lucy!)
And last but not least, "Yet to be Named"... the youngest daughter is still mulling over the perfect name for her goat!
Hands down, the eggs have it! The farm delivers dozens and dozens of eggs to their customers each and every week. Those big beautiful orbs are pretty popular and the chickens (and Randel) work hard every single day to produce them for you.
Other than feeding and watering the chickens twice daily and cleaning the coop frequently, one might wonder what is involved from the time the eggs are laid to being hand delivered to you in a neat egg carton. The following is a story with pictures and captions showing the process.
By the way, did you know that FRESH eggs do not need refrigeration? Washing removes the natural protective coating, but also makes them sanitary to handle.
