Some pictures of our cattle and sheep this summer and fall. The first five are our cows and calves grazing diverse summer pastures. Pictures 6 and 7 are some grass finished beeves, and the last is a picture of some lamb wethers finishing on pasture joined by the ram.
We started the greenhouse the first of February and it is time for the plants to start walking out the door. The cool season crops have been selling, and we still have some available. The first of the warm season crops are ready. We will be at the Ashland Farmers Market on Saturdays and the Carytown Market on Sundays beginning in May. We mostly grew vegetable plants, but we also grew some flowers, and this year we grew more herbs. We use organic fertilizer and do not spray pesticides. We use organic seed when we can.
Here are some winter pictures taken on a cold rainy day. This is the cow herd with their September born calves. The bull is in the herd, breeding the cows. They are finishing up strip grazing a field of stockpiled switch grass. We have two areas of fescue still to graze before we start feeding some hay.
