New grass and pasture and happy fat lambs and momma's
We have tons of new fibers and yarns in the farm stand and cool retreats and educational opportunities coming up. Clubs new fibers and Sampler kits found on the online shop ETSY . Always feel free to call and stop by.
the last of this years 2014 lambs were born. 38 in total. So happy the
season is over! Its been long and cold and well cold. I would like to
say that now I could think of getting a full nights sleep uninterrupted
but have a few bottle babies that need
tending @ midnight and 4am. I can't believe I have had enough energy to
set the Farm Store back up before MD Sheep and Wool Fest. We are
Starting to Coop a little w/ Oak Spring Farm. They have the best eggs and do a Veggi CSA.
2014 LAMBING season has begun! First lamb was
born Jan 29th during a Feederbrook Farm Fiber Project/ CSA meeting. The
lucky participants in the program got to see their first birth ever and
they didn't have to wait around all night into the early morning. But it
was still pretty cold out. We are looking forward to milder weather.
By the way the first lamb is a ram lamb and a Lincoln/Teeswater cross.
Here is our first Teeswater 90% + born here on the farm. Super cute ewe lamb w/ a sister. Great start to the year.
