The song birds are fledging. It’s time to keep the farm cats inside, as much as possible, so fledglings, like this determined little guy, have a chance.

So grateful for the many hands that brought our local dinner to the table tonight. We were well fed by salad grown by Greenleaf Farms, crab cakes made by The Shrimp Guy, and The Congaree Milling Company’s Hominy Grits, cooked with Doko Farm heritage turkey stock, and finished with butter and lemon.

Mom’s day out! Our St. Croix ewes, and Strawberry Shortcake (the small brown goat), are helping to maintain the front of the farm, while feasting on fresh spring growth. Grazing roadside requires old school shepherding, with me standing guard with my shepherding crook. If you drive by the farm, while we are out, wave, but please do not honk.

It is late, or maybe it’s really early. I fell asleep on the couch again, and 2:30am finds me bottle feeding lambs by the light of the full moon. The lambs are happy to see me, no doubt wondering where I have been. A whippoorwill sings, as a cool breeze caresses my skin. I love the quiet, early morning hours on our farm. I look forward to the day when I am not bottle feeding lambs around the clock, but I know I will miss it too. All is right on the farm, as I head inside to get a few more hours of sleep before morning comes.

I have been working on fixing up milk stand for Daisy. I gave it a new floor and even a pretty coat of paint (I found a full gallon of exterior paint on the farm, and cannot remember how it got here.)

The first day I moved the milk stand into Daisy’s stall, she could reach her food without getting up on the stand. She ate from the right side. She ate from the left side. She was mocking me.

That evening, I pushed the stand further into the corner and she put her front hooves on it to reach her food. Closer, but still not quite right. Finally with a roll of wire mesh blocking her path she got all the way on the stand! Since then we have been working on her being relaxed on the milk stand with me next to her, and touching her.

I still need to make a new head gate. The one I have from our Pygmy goats is way too short! But we are making steady progress and we will be milking in no time!

Of course I also have to snuggle her kids, Mighty Max and Juniper, while I am in the goat yard. They are just too cute!

Chicken Gate Update! It took me a while to find items around the farm that I could use to finish off Chicken Gate.The gate handle came from the scrap metal pile 😍, and a working latch was found in the many bits and pieces of useful things in the tool shed. I am happy to report that we now have a fully functional gate at the chicken coop, and all without purchasing any additional items. I have already started on my next project, rebuilding my milk stand for Daisy our dairy goat.

Doko Farm Bees-Welcome to the farm!

Joe picked-up our new bees today. Pick-up was easy, but on the drive home some of the bees managed to work their way out of their box. First one, then a couple more. Before long, ten little buzzing passengers were riding shotgun. Joe, and all the bees, made it home safely. The bees were settled into their new hive, and Joe even brought them a welcome gift, a little food to get them started. We are excited to have a hive of bees again at Doko Farm. Welcome home little friends. We know you are going to love it here! 🐝

(Sound on for ambient farm song)

We were able to get a couple of baskets of strawberries from our good friends at Organically Roland. These aren't like the store bought watered-downed version of a strawberry that are picked too early so that they can survive being shipped from CA. Organically Roland's strawberries are flavorful, juicy and so fragrant that you can smell them through your face covering. If you have a chance to get some for yourself, don't pass it up.

At Doko Farm our day started early. Joe left before the sun was up to pick-up our new bees, and the kids and I took care of morning farm chores. When we did take a break, we made a batch of these delicious strawberry muffins. So good! Here is the recipe if you would like to try them too.

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup plain yogurt, plus 1/4 cup milk to thin it out (or 1 cup buttermilk if you have the real deal on hand)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg (Ezra's Eggs from our farm are awesome!)
1 cup fresh strawberries (Organically Roland's of course!)

1. Heat oven to 375F. Place paper baking cups in 15-16 spots in your regular sized muffin tins

2. In a large bowl mix together dry ingredients. In a separate bowl mix the remaining ingredients (except the strawberries). Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just moistened. Stir in strawberries. Divide the batter among the muffin cups.

3. Bake 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10mins and then enjoy while still warm.

They are finally here! These beautiful goats joined Doko Farm yesterday! Daisy, our new dairy goat, is Saanen and Nubian. She came with her two babies. Juniper (brown female), and Mighty Max (black and white male), will be 2 weeks old this weekend. Thank you to Big Belly Farm, for entrusting us with these lovelies.

There was nothing to do except play with him, through the glass, until he stepped on the button again.

Warmer weather means everyone is shedding. Most striking are our St. Croix hair sheep, who do not need to be sheared, but instead shed their winter coats in large clumps. This awkward phase is short lived. In a few weeks, they will be sporting their sleek summer looks.

One last item crossed off the farm list today. I present to you Chicken Gate! I am so proud of this one. I think it maybe the prettiest thing I ever made (not counting the farm kiddos of course). The wood is from a large cedar that we had to remove from next to the farm house. We had the wood milled, but mostly received slabs and 2 inch boards back to reduce waste. It took me a day with the table saw to cut the lumber down to what I needed, and part of another day to get it put together. Now, I just need to find/make a worthy latch and handle. Chicken chores just got a whole lot easier! ❤️

We were dismantling an old chicken hoop house on pasture, when the farm kiddos found a Carolina Wren nest, with two tiny speckled eggs, in one of the nest boxes. We did as much as we could, but left the back wall and nest boxes, until after the babies hatch and fledge. Sustainable farming means working with nature, and sometimes rearranging your schedule in the best interest of all. (When I went back to check on them, later in the day, the wren was back sitting in her nest. 💕) #DokoFarm #sustainable #smallfarm #spring #birdnest #naturephotography #carolinawren

We got some lamb and chicken from Doko yesterday... the Lamb Kofta I made was some of the best I’ve ever had. Support these folks if and when you can.
Best meat in town!
