May Newsletter and Open House
We hope you are having a wonderful spring so far! School has ended for the summer over here (except for the ubiquitous math) and we are in full swing with spring activities. We have all remembered how hard it is to get moving again after a long and somewhat sedentary winter! So, we will update everyone on what is happening with all of the animals on the farm, as well as some special events including an open house on June 4th. Animals first, as they are the focus of so much activity.
Spring in January
As the east coast was getting pounded by superstorm “Jonas”, we had a mild thaw with temperatures in the 30s. After days of overcast, cold, dreary weather it was a sunny glorious day. So, we went about doing some chores to get ready for the certain return of cold weather and the imminent birth of baby lambs.
Great Grandma Gladney (Mama’s Grandma) would always crochet us kids a baby blanket, however, recently this task has fallen to me….
How to find a cheap chest freezer
We’re pretty good at coming up to random people and asking them if they’d like to buy a pig, lamb, or some other animal. Once they realize that we don’t mean a living animal, they relax and then admit that they don’t have the freezer space for a year’s supply of meat. If you’re one of these people, then you really need a stand alone freezer.
