Farm update Sept. 2016

Our Farm is totally out of control amazing right now! Everything is in full bloom and our garden is exploding with fresh produce! So different than when we moved out here to the desert.  It is our own little plot of paradise. My mom picked a bushel of pears off our tree and the orchard is thriving! We recently planted new rows of raspberries that our very dear friend Tom gave us!  I can’t wait for them to start producing.

Our Catahoula hound, Tank, spends his days running as fast as he can through the green gardens and the sprinklers.  Our little goats gallop up and down the fields chasing after us for treats and head rubs. The end of summer has been good to us. Things have cooled down just a little bit and all I want to do is hang around outside throwing the ball for Tank and talking with my family.  I love it.

Walked outside to do the chores today and my mom found FIVE new baby Kune Kune pigs! SO CUTE! We are super excited. We also have some older ones, they are quite friendly and a few of them are for sale! Send my mom an email or give her a call if you are interested.

First Saturday Back

We were able to make it back to the farmers market yesterday! I want to thank everyone who made it out to see us!  It was a super busy weekend with a lot of other festivals going on and the market was a little slower than normal, but it was so wonderful to be there and feel back in the swing of things!  We will see you guys again this coming Saturday! I will make sure to post about specials later in the week!

2015

What a crazy year! It was a rough go.  My Dad was very sick this year and we lost my wonderful Grandfather. Things have not slowed down one bit though! We have been making soap and keeping up with the new farm.

We planted lots and lots of trees this year and two huge gardens. My Mom was able to get some chicks to hatch we have Swedish Flower Hens, Isbar, and Giant Bielefelder chickens. Our Kune Kune pig Luna had a beautiful batch of piglets, we just love them.  It is almost time for us to get ready for our goats to start kidding after the new year.

Just in time for Thanksgiving we were able to remodel the kitchen so we could fit the whole family and make enough dinner for everyone, it was so wonderful to have everyone here and have my dad feeling better to celebrate as a family.

The snow is starting to come down thick as I write this quick update!

I want to thank all of our wonderful customers for supporting us this year!

Downtown Farmer’s Market

We are officially back at the downtown farmer’s market, on Saturdays.  Our booth is located on the east side of the park from 8am to 2pm, stop by and say hello!  We are always so excited to see everyone there!

 

We have a beautiful new soap up online, Lily of the Valley.  Such a pretty bar and an enchanting scent!

Also some new stamps for our soaps have arrived and they are adorable.

Sheep Stamp!

 

Getting a garden to survive the harsh winds we can get out here has proved to be something of a challenge.  We finally put up some wind screen and hope that this will help take care of the problem, and keep our tomatoes from being blown over!

Piglets and baby goats are still running around everywhere.  We have a few of both still for sale.  The baby goats we had this year were the cream of the crop, we just had some of the most beautiful babies ever!

Happy Valentine’s Day

We had a very special baby born just in time for Valentine’s day, Cupids Bow or maybe we should name her Hearts Desire, what a beauty!  Our other new little darling is Spotted Owl,  both of their mothers are superior milkers.  We are so excited for all the new babies we have had lately.  We are making lots of soap and getting geared up for the summer farmers market in Salt Lake City. We cannot wait to see everyone there!
