It is finally here! I just returned to the farm, with our much anticipated Cranberry Sage Turkey Sausage and our ground turkey. Both are from our pasture-raised heritage turkeys. Stay tuned for on-farm sales days, and Meat-ups. (I know what we are having for dinner!) #DokoFarm #smallfarm #pastureraised #heritagemeats #NarragansettTurkeys #SlowFood #ArkofTaste

Coyote Chronicles: We made it 22 days without a coyote sighting. Then last Thursday, as I was leaving the farm, I caught the coyote inspecting the coop where our breeding flock of Buckeye Chickens were still eating breakfast and laying eggs. It ran back through the barnyard and to the woods. I did a sweep of the farm, but it was long gone, or at least just beyond the tree line and out of sight. Since then, our Breeding flock of Buckeye Chickens have only been free ranging, when I am home. Today they were out enjoying the farm. This afternoon, I just happened to be at the kitchen door, when the coyote came walking through our carport, to the driveway, very much at home. No doubt it was looking for a chicken. It saw me and turned back to the woods. By the time Joe got to me (and he was fast!) the coyote was already to the tree line. The chickens are being stubborn and refuse to go back in their coop before dark. I don’t think the coyote will be back today, but Binks, our farm kitty, has already insisted on coming inside. He is a smart cat. Certainly smarter than your average chicken. Until next time...

Carmen, our La Mancha dairy goat, did not come up to eat this afternoon, so we went looking for her. She had let herself into our breeding pen, but managed to somehow get her hoof tangled in the fencing, on her way out. I ended up having to cut her free. She seems a bit sore, and tired, but otherwise ok. Whew! That could have been much worse. #DokoFarm #lamancha #goatlife #farmlife

Narragansett turkey (Conservation Status - Watch)
Named for Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island (derived from the Algonquian word Naiaganset, or "small point of land") and became the original foundation of the turkey industry in New England. #HeritageTurkeys http://bit.ly/NarragansettTurkey

I took this short video of the sheep trying to decide if they approved of my work. At the time, I didn’t even notice two of our Livestock Guardian Dogs, Xenia and Larry, racing by to check on something at the back fence line. They are always working hard to keep our pasture safe. Good doggos! Turn on the sound, to enjoy the Narragansett turkeys serenade, in the background. #DokoFarm #LGDs #greatpyrenees #pastureraised #heritagebreeds

We started with five of these majestic oaks along our driveway. Each one likely 200+ years old. One by one they have been taken down by storms, or died. We lost two this summer, and are now left with one remaining large oak. We plan to plant more in their place, but they will never grow this large in my lifetime (and likely not in our children’s lifetime). The following photos are from an oak that died where it stood. Most of the photos were taken from the same location. It took a day and a half to get it down. 💔

Our Livestock Guardian Dog, Potter, usually guards our goats and St.Croix ram. He is currently without an area of his own to guard, as we redo fencing, and our barnyard pens. On Wednesday he went as my farmhand to pick up lettuce from Vertical Roots. File it under other duties as assigned. What a good boy!

I love this photo, from tonight’s Blythewood Farmers Market, of Michaela, our market manager, with a Doko Farm Buckeye chicken. Michaela has done an amazing job growing the Blythewood Farmer’s Market, and I can’t wait to see what next year brings. There are still a couple of markets left this season, so you can stock up on local pasture-raised heritage meats, bread, veggies, and locally crafted gifts. Plus prepared food, beverages, live music and cooler weather. We hope you will join us! #DokoFarm #sustainable #pastureraised #heritatgebreeds #eatlocal #bwoodmarket

The Coyote Chronicles: No sooner had I finished feeding out pumpkin to some of our livestock, and made it back inside the farm house, than the coyote came racing through the barnyard, and past this chicken coop. It was chasing some of our chickens that had strayed past the pasture fence. The chickens reached the house and I rushed out the kitchen door. The coyote seemed to turn mid-leap, and disappeared back through the barnyard and into the woods. I know our breeding flock of Buckeyes prefer to wander the farm during the day, but they are probably thankful that they were not the ones being chased this time. Staying vigilant, on the farm. Not today, coyote. Not today. #DokoFarm #sustainable #smallfarm #Buckeyechickens #heritagebreeds
