We added new residents to the farm this week. We had been looking for a puppy for Maxine to train for help with marauding critters on the farm. Saturday, Intern Amy and Farmer Paul drove to Cadiz to pick up not one puppy, but two. Farmer Paul found them on a farm that had to move and he just couldn’t separate the two sisters. So, we now have Charlie (short for Charlotte) and Sally. Charlie prefers to be with the animals and won’t stay near people if she can help it. Sally is trying to warm up to us and finally let us pet her yesterday.
Our other new resident is Pan (aka Rambo III). Farmer Paul and Intern Amy drove to Ladoga on Sunday to trade rams with another Katahdin breeder. We would have preferred to go the summer without a ram but sometimes you have to take the opportunity when it presents itself. For now, Pan is living with the goats, usually standing in the corner of the paddock looking forlornly at the ladies in the pasture.
Visit us at the Farm to Fork Market at Normandy Farms on Saturday, April 26. This will be the last Saturday market for the winter season. We switch to Fridays next week. This week, we have lots of eggs, pastured pork, and pastured chicken. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Betsy will also continue to bring her Guinea Girl lotions, body butter, herbal salves, and lip balms.
As always, we also sell our eggs and grass-fed meats at the farm.
