We are three days late on our blog post this week and we only have a few photos to share. We’ve been busy with our new little one, Fern who was born on Wednesday April 29. Mom (Frieda) had no labor complications and her calf was strong and alert from the beginning.

We now have full-size, non-GMO, free-range eggs on the farm and as an addition to weekly delivery locations for $4.00 per dozen. Our ladies work hard to make these delicious eggs and we are grateful for them – YUM!
Milk shares are available, as well! If you’ve been thinking about raw milk or know someone who is interested in learning more, contact us for information and a FREE half gallon sample.
And now…let the baby cow cuteness begin!
Lots of updates this week!
