The Chicks Are Coming!

Do you know how to tame a piglet? This week, I figured it out   Piglets will do just about ANYTHING for eggs.  We kept six of the piglets that were born this winter for ourselves, and we are working on getting them people-friendly.  And, of course, we included them in the video for ya!

We have our first batch of chicks coming in the next few days, so one of the projects we filmed this week was cleaning out the brooder.

We are still taking pre-orders for our Pastured Chicken.  You can get more info about that HERE.

Oh, don’t miss the sneak peak at my sister, Laura’s, newest project.  More coming on that soon!

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday!

Wrapping Up January with PIGLETS & a LAMB

Can you believe it’s the end of January already?!  Why, it feels like Christmas was just last week!

But before January is officially over, we have a couple things to share.

First, the piglets are here.  Well, some of them, anyway.  Anna tells me there are a BUNCH more on the way.  She and my younger sisters are going to be BUSY next month!

(I have to admit, pigs are not my thing. I really think they hate me. So, since my sisters don’t usually need my help in the pig barn, I focus more on the sheep, goats, and pastured chickens.)

And as if taking care of a bunch of grumpy pregnant pigs didn’t keep her busy enough, Anna has also been bottle feeding a baby lamb.  Our cousin had a sheep that rejected her lamb, so Anna agreed to take care of the baby.

Want to see all these cute babies?  Check out Anna’s video below!

Till next time, friend,

We finally have another video for you!

In today’s video, Anna and I each grabbed a camera and filmed parts of our day. I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out, but I think you are going to enjoy the end product.

Let me know what you think!
Talk to you soon!

Spring Piglets

While I was browsing our website today, I realized that we forgot to post about the new piglets. I mentioned this”problem”to Sarah, and she drafted me to write a piglet post.  Therefore, bear with me as I compose my first blog post. 🙂

Piglets? Yeah! Lots of them…22 to be exact!

Shanny, short for Shenandoah, had her piglets first.  They’re a week old today.

Such a proud mama pig

 

Our other sow, Tanya, had her 11 piglets two days ago.  She’s a very good mother!

For the first couple of days we like to give them a heat lamp in their “Piglet Box”.  After eating they head to the box to sleep.
