Spring is the time for babies and they are popping out all over the farm.  The dairy cows will not be outdone by the sheep (although they are seriously outnumbered) and several cows have calved which means more milk.  More milk means yogurt, buttermilk, ricotta and cream.  Brayden will have some extra for our cowshare owners at the market but if you want to be certain to go home with some extra products please order at least two days before the market or drop off.We have two new girls in the milking line, Luna and Buttercup.  They came to us via our friend Bob DePauw in Illinois, the only farm we trust for our new heifers.  These two beauties are the last girls we think we will need to purchase from off the farm but we will now begin to keep all of our own replacements.
Next time…
our dairy sheep, Dolly (Parton) and our dairy goat, Stella ( I love yelling “Hey Stella!! in my best Brando impersonation) will be ready for milking and I will have more information on shares available for sheep and goat milk and yogurt.
