Summer happenings

I feel like the farm blog has gotten rather neglected as I've put more energy into blogging over at The Farmerette. This farm specific blog was more useful when the farm chores were more divided and I was less involved in  the day to day animal chores, but over this summer, with no pasturing chicken chores, the boys have become less involved in the day to day chores and I've added cows and pigs to our sheep herd and chicken flock. Plus, as you can see in the photos Mom got some more puffball duckies...  we certainly love our ducks. 

Some summer highlights this year include - our church's weeklong family camp at the beach, lots and lots of overnight guests/family/friends (2+ months worth!), several camping trips, etc. It's been a good summer!

Sheep in the orchard and chickens around the yard

From early May. 

Happy sheep in the orchard....

Meanwhile, the girls enjoy the sunshine.... and their perch.

And a rooster supervises...

Chicken letter

This got sent out by email this evening, but I thought I would post it here for those interested... 

Dear Customers,
You may have surmised this already, but it is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that we will not be raising and selling chickens this year.
It took us a while to arrive at this sad decision but with the theft of 150 fully grown chickens last year (who would’ve thought?!) and several other factors, God seems to be directing us to take a break this year.
That being said, if you have any questions about raising chickens, we would love to give you some pointers and help you on your journey to healthy eating.
We will still be processing chickens this summer so please feel free to contact us for that…
Thank you so much for the past years of business and giving us the opportunity to serve you with fresh, natural, delicious chickens.
Yours Truly,
 Tyler for Scott, Andrew, Daniel, and Jacob
