In this video, we wanted to share with you our reflections on being working farmers, and how juggling a baby and work tasks work out. This video is especially catered towards other farmers who are considering growing their human families… Giving them a few insights about how to include your baby in your farm life from the beginning!
Sometimes we forget to videotape our breeding flock of turkeys during their “carefree” season: winter. As usual, the males spent most of the day showing off for each other, while the females were off in search of snacks. You can hear Emma gobbling on this video to motivate the toms to respond. They sure are some fun, noisy critters.
Our 2-month-old son, Uhtred, loves being outside! He’s met all of the animals, and the turkeys are his stand-out favorites. He loves the noise! Check out this video of our pasture-raised. free-range, non-GMO heritage turkeys being herded around the yard by Uhtred!
Now that the turkeys are reaching maturity, the toms are getting frisky and excited to battle each other for hen affection. Even though the hens ignore the boys, the toms sure do have fun messing with each other!
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.
