These Lambs Have SPRINGS in Their LEGS

local fresh healthy natural pastured chicken central pennsylvania

It’s been an awesome week here at Never Done Homestead.  Our last sheep had her lamb, which brought our total lamb count for 2018 to FIFTEEN LAMBS!  That’s almost twice as many as last year. Wow!

In between the rain showers, we were able to get a little bit of gardening in.
But I’m not complaining about the rain; it’s making our pastures so nice and lush.
All the animals are gorging themselves on all that green goodness, including the Pastured Chickens!

Anna made an update video to show some of stuff we’ve been up to.

In my opinion, the best part of this video is at the end.  If you’ve never seen LAMB RACES, make sure you stay till the end of the movie, because these lambs have found the springs in their legs, and they are USING THEM!

Stay Awesome!

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!

We’re Back in the Garden Again

 

Have you ever had one of those weeks where you feel like you were just constantly busy, but when the end of the week rolled around, you had NO CLUE what you did all week?

That was our week in a nut shell.

BUT, I do remember one job we completed this week.
We planted the first seeds in the vegetable garden!!! OH YEAH!

For you non-gardeners, that probably sounds really boring.

But after a long, dreary winter, it’s so fun to watch those little green shoots start poking their heads through the garden soil.  Well, unless it’s weed shoots…

So if you want to catch a bit of the fun, join us in today’s video as we begin to awaken the sleeping garden.

It SNOWED! ~ Winter Weather Barn Chores

Did it snow at your house last night?  It did here!  I’m just a big kid when it comes to snow. Even though it makes work around the farm a bit more challenging, I still absolutely love snow.

Anna and I made you a video this morning with all our grazing animals in the barns and enjoying the snow.  Well, most of them were enjoying the snow.  You will see that not all my darlings enjoy the snow as much as I do.

Enjoy!

Never Done Homestead Videos are BACK!

Hello from Never Done Homestead.

grass fed lamb sunbury pa northumberland county central pa pastured sheep

We are getting ready to slow down for the winter season after a super busy late summer/early fall.  But before winter officially starts, we thought we should try to get a video made before we missed the entire fall season.

I think because it has been three months since we made a video (naughty, naughty), our movie-making skills feel a bit rusty.  You will see what I mean when you watch the video below.
Oh, and fellow goat lovers, don’t panic about the lack of goats in this video.  I still have my (awesome) goats. They just aren’t on pasture any more as they have migrated to their warm winter quarters. Video on that coming soon!
Ok, enough random chatter…Here is the video:
Take care friends!

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!
