Farm Tour…Sunday…


I just received an email from the President of the Texel Sheep Breeders Society.  He would like to come to our farm for a tour and an interview for the website and newsletter.  Whoa!  I’m excited and nervous all at the same time.  Our sheep lots and pasture area are no where near where we would like them to be.  However, we are thrilled about the opportunity, are going to do what we can to make everything presentable, and hope for the best.  Let’s just hope the boys and girls are on their best behavior while he is here. LOL

We (verbally) have one sold for butchering, so we have him separated and eating “the good stuff.”  She’s excited to find lamb, and we are excited at the opportunity to provide someone with quality meat.  It’s more than just a little sad, but we are trying to block it out and do what has to be done.  “We take care of them, so they can take care of us.”  Right? 

We have family flying in from the Carolinas Thursday, so we are excited to see everyone and have the whole family together again.  Another busy weekend ahead of us, but looking forward to it.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
