Our trio of geese stand guard over our free range, pasture raised flock of Red Ranger broilers. Their presence protects from aerial predators and they deter four-footed creatures with their ridiculously loud honking! Check out this video to hear them sound the alarm, even though it’s only us approaching. Good job, geese!
Perhaps the most fun we have around here is when we get to take our animals to schools, birthday parties, community centers, and other cool places. We love sharing a taste of the farm with others and kids just love the experience! If you’re interested in booking Spaetzle, our ducks, and turkey for a visit of your own, check out Our Farm to Your School page.
Check out this video of Spaetzle the piglet enjoying a birthday party and eating grass while wearing a party hat!
This video was filmed in late winter, when the cows get really excited about greenery. Jason calls them over and they know that he plans to give them some fresh grass that has sprung up… So they come running!
This past week, Half-Nose delivered a litter of cute little babies (including a spotted babe). The day after, another pig delivered her first litter, but since it was her first time as a mom, she wasn’t up to the challenge. Luckily, Half-Nose happily adopted her babies and is nursing away! Great job, Half-Nose!
