Farm Happenings

Newspaper coverage, moving day nears, baby goat birth video and a teaser…

We have less than a week before our great farm moving adventure happens. We are in the last stretches of packing things up. In the house it’s come to just grabbing armfuls of unpacked things and throwing them into boxes.

Last week all our mama goats had their babies, we were really worried they might have babies during moving week. All mamas and babies are doing wonderful though. We even had a surprise triplet from our Kinder doe that we unintentionally caught on camera:

Our Jersey cow is still due to calf at the end of the month but she’s staying at with our farmy friends over at Red Dutchess Farm until after we get settled at our new place.

We are harvesting some early season crops for our Golconda Farm Market customers and we also have some very exciting developments where our CSA program and our market produce are concerned but I have to wait to reveal that news until the equipment has arrived and been hooked up. Be sure to join our newsletter so you get to hear our news first —->

As we march closer and closer to moving day our move is spuring some local attention, we have been featured by Illinois Farmer Today and republished on The Southern where you can read about my husband’s unusual journey into farming.

We hope you’ll stop by the farmer’s market to see us this Saturday! We will be there from 8am-1am.
