Lambs Are Here! 

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.
