Ready, Set, Wait!

I cleaned out the chicken coop and goat shed.  We keep lots of hay around the hens and goats for bedding.  Eventually it becomes “soiled” and I need to clean it all out.  Our goats and chickens do a lot of roaming during the day, dropping their “fertilizer” around and in the goats case in … Continue reading »

Last summer while working at Brant Family Farm I … Continue reading »

Bamboo How I Love Thee, Let Me Count the Ways….

1.  These dumb waterers break every time.  The other day I discovered how to make a comfortable handle with a skinny piece of bamboo. 2.  Last November we were short on chicken wire so I made a fence with it. 3.  And the hens are nice and comfy on their bamboo roosts.  Yet another thing … Continue reading »

Welcome To Urbanta Farm!

Well folks I started a new farm.  This is Urbanta.  It’s a new farm.  The ants just came the other day and thanks to Melissa and her mom (I’ve been a little busy with another farm with a similar name) they are alive and well.  You may notice the cricket carcasses.  These insects are eating … Continue reading »

Still No Goat On a Rope

I have considered the rope though.  Goats are animals and animals have personalities, good days and bad days.  After chasing one of our hooved friends around the field for 15 minutes, the other morning, I was pondering a long-leash sort of situation.  Even with their bad days I am very greatful that we have not had … Continue reading »
