flock of sheep

Our friend in Gilboa, NY has given us her flock of sheep. We are looking at one Ram and 2 Ewes and 3 lambs. We are on the way to sheep milk/cheese, wool and meat.

chicken flock

The chickens started laying eggs last week. a couple of fresh eggs for breakfast is a perfect way to start a day at the farm. The chickens spend most of the time indoors where their feed is, plus they don't like the snow. This flock is 1 rooster, 3 retired hens and 2 layer hens.

feeding the lambs

Moo had mastitis and was unable to milk her lambs during her treatment. so, 3 times a day someone had to march up the hill and feed the lambs. here is Dorothea Braemer ( executive director of Squeeky Wheel) nursing our 2 lambs and Andes Sprouts first artist in residence Stefani Bardin.
