Spring is coming!

1st lamb of the season
Jada with the 1st lamb of the season

 

Better than the sign of the ground hog, is the birth of the first lambs.  It is the first sign for us that spring is coming before long.  Recognizably not soon enough for some.  Here at the farm we have lambs hopping around in the snow and the next round of baby chicks being raised to produce fantastic pasture raised eggs in 5 months, to remind us that winter won’t last for ever.  This thought is often matched with enthusiasm but sometimes with a small level of panic when I think of the many winter projects not yet complete.  But in the end,  I always welcome the first signs of promise for good things to come on the farm.  Thank you for your support of new life here at This Old Farm!
