GETTING READY FOR THE UP - COMING PLOWING SEASON!
New arrivals to the farm are Dan & Barney, a pair of Belgian / Mammoth donkey cross Mules.
They hail from Texas and will hopefully be Kim's new plow team for the 2015 season. It takes a lot of work, patience and time to get horses or mules to walk slow enough for competition. Seen here Kim has them out pulling a bit of weight for conditioning ( plow ) and learning to walk slowly.
The rural real estate continues to be busy with many new folks moving into the area. A few want to give their children a more rural experience and to introduce them to animal husbandry and growing their own food. Others just want to enjoy the tranquility of the country side and will frequent the many farm stands in the area for fresh fruit and veggies! Yet others already reside here but are adding to their land holdings to increase herd sizes or maybe to bring now grown children into the farm business. Welcome to you all and thank you for letting us work with you!
