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!

Ever Tried To Wake A Milk Cow?

I bet you thought we fell off the face of the earth! We’ve had a lovely stretch of summer-like weather, and we ran with it. We had so much going on this week, we were only able to fit half of it in this video. So this movie should really be called part 1 of 2. 🙂

But before you go watch it, I have a quick announcement. We have added a third pick-up date for our pastured chicken. You can now order chicken for Sept. 9th. It’s not on the website yet, so you are the first to know about it!  Our July chicken is already sold out, so don’t miss out!

So without further ado, here is today’s video:

Take care,

What Are We Using To Cut The Grass?

Happy Saturday!

Have you ever fallen for peer pressure? Yeah, me too!  And in this week’s video we fell for it again.  It seems like all the other homesteaders have posted videos this week of trying to use an old fashioned scythe.  So, we dug the scythe out of the barn.  And tried it out…on video.  🙂

Don’t forget! This Friday, June 2, is the last day to order Pastured chicken for June. Get all the details HERE!

Have an awesome weekend!

🎥 Ever Wonder What Our Mornings Are Like? 🐓

Have you even wondered what our typical morning looks like here at Never Done Homestead? I get asked all the time how we move all these animals every day.
Well, you don’t have to wonder any more because my sister, Anna, has made a video showing how we get everybody where they are supposed to be every morning.

Enjoy!

Farm Girl Chores: Grinding Feed

GMO Free Feed Chicken Sunbury PA
Grandpa’s 175 MF Ready to Work!

Anna, Laura, and I spent part of yesterday afternoon grinding feed.  It’s one of those farm jobs that I’m not crazy about, which is probably why I tend to put it off till the last minute. Yesterday’s fresh-off-the-grinder menu included turkey feed, layer feed, and pig grower.  All three feeds share just about all the same ingredients, but different amounts of these ingredients based on each animal’s needs.

One nice thing about mixing your own feed is the ability to adapt the ration to fit your current needs.  Say the weather suddenly gets a bit chilly at night and the turkeys look a a little stressed; we can add a few more pounds of Thorvin Kelp to their feed to give their immune systems a bit of boost.

All the grains are added, so Anna and Gyp head to the barn to add the minerals and supplement.

After the minerals are added, we auger out a few buckets of feed to dump in the mineral box.  This makes sure all the minerals are pushed into the the mixer.  (Is Laura standing on something, or am I really THAT short?)

feed6

Once everything is mixed together, we put the feed in the appropriate barrels. And there you have it, freshly ground, GMO Free feed.

Stay cool today everyone. We gals have a busy day today, and hopefully, if everything goes as planned, I’ll have some exciting news to share with you tomorrow.  🙂

The Pastured Broilers Are Growing

 

Pastured Chicken Sunbury Pa Northumberland County

Our meat chickens love being on pasture!  You should see how they gobble down the grass each morning after we move their shelters to a fresh square of pasture.

The grass is growing faster than the chickens can keep up with it.  Since meat chickens don’t like tall grass, we are grazing the grass shorter in front of the shelters with the goats and sheep.  The goats and sheep are enjoying the grass, and the chickens are happy: win, win!
