So as I was reading the newspaper (and by this I mean the newspaper's website) and came across this articlehttp://www.independentmail.com/news/2012/apr/15/increasing-number-of-programs-raising-a-new-of/Its good to hear about things like this for a change. I just hope they will teach about sustainable farm as well.
Well we have the driveway/parking lot in now. It took us 2 long days but it's one of the last "big" jobs to do. We also moved Molly the llama and the goats to the new pasture by the store.
Well we are still hard at work on the farm. We were able to get some much needed work done so that we can rotate the cows better. The cows were oh so happy to get a new paddock. Our steers are continuing to grow very well.
The llamas were sheared this past weekend. While they did not really like it they will be much more comfortable this summer. And, we didn't get spit on. I call that a win. The shearing was done by Brett Schweiger.
And, with Spring rushing in the way it is the bees are starting out strong! When I pulled the top of this hive I saw this. Wow there are a lot of bees! All of our hives have honey supers on them.
I'm currently working on getting approval from the SC Dept of Ag to be able to sell our honey. I better hurry May 18th is coming soon!
