The post office called yesterday morning to say we had a peeping box so we drove down to get it and now have 60 more mouths to feed. #backyardchickens

What came first. The chicken or the pig

We have a chicken that loves hanging with the piglets and tends to them as if they are her own.  Silly girl

Happy birthday

Christy said she would love to have a boysenberry or olallieberriy patch for her birthday. We all got busy in the orchard this week and now she has both! #brambleberries #backyardorchard #freshfruit

Sarah's babies

Sarah gave us two little buckling last night.  They are both beautiful...but truth be told we were hoping for girls.  This is our second year with an abundance of boys.  Hopefully the next bunch of babies will even out the odds.  We haven't named these guys yet...but will very soon.

More boys

Sarah just shot these 2 boys out in less than 3 minutes. We're not exactly growing the herd this season. #mininubian #dairygoats #youvegottobekidding

More pigs soon

Zsa  Zsa's milk has come in and we should have piglets any day now. #mangalitsa #oldworldpigs #gourmetpork
