Who we are

Who are we? What do we do around here? We are just a bunch of animal loving country folk. We have chickens, goats, ducks, dogs, cats, and lots of squirrels and rabbits running around. We plan to expand and add bees and dairy goats. Running a family farm is a lot of work but so rewarding. We just thought we’d share a little of us with you! We hope you enjoy this little clip. If you want to come see us send us a message. 😊

We have Spring Fever!

Warmer weather is here. Although the forecast calls for lows in the 40’s and highs in the upper 50’s later next week warmer weather means it’s time to start planting! Finally. This has been the coldest and longest winter. We are so ready to move on. We managed to get the ground ready and get some transplants and potatoes planted this weekend. I believe we now officially have Spring Fever. 🙂
Sara Lee had surgery on her tail Wednesday this week due to a huge gash she managed to rip in it somehow. She is on on antibiotics and wearing a cone. Poor baby. She enjoyed a little outside time today too, but it has been very hard to keep her calm and clean!

Breakfast time: Calling all people, dogs and chickens?

So the cutest thing happened this morning as I called Mr. Cheese to breakfast. You will have to settle for my description because I didn’t have my camera. Because He and the dogs, and a bunch of the chickens were in the garden I walked out the back door and yelled, “food”! Within a second here comes Sara Lee the fit and trim lab running at full speed with Gracie, our chubby black lab, lumbering behind in the distance. Laughing, I say “well I don’t have to call you two twice do I? Now how long will it take Daddy?” Then, as if he hears me, he cranks up the Kubota and heads up with Dakota, the beagle, running behind. Then I see it. A little golden hen running behind Gracie as fast as she can, trying to keep up! By now I’m cracking up. Mr. C has pulled up laughing and we ask our little golden girl, ” Have you come for breakfast too?”
Now, my chickens recognize their feed bucket and they know where the food and scratch and other treats are stored. But this is certainly the first time one has come running to a breakfast call!
They are amazing and intelligent creatures and so much fun.
