This morning, I was able to get out into the gardens and collect seeds, before it started raining. Persimmon, our orange cat, followed me out to the edible forest garden and chatted me up, while I worked. I now have a table full of seeds. With a little luck, and a lot of care, we will have plenty of flowers for the pollinators next year. #dokofarm #sustainable #smallfarm #seeds #futureflowers #savingseedsfornextyear #feedthebees #pollinators #orangecatsrule #bathtubpond ( the captions are not saving again so here they are: 1. Rudebekiah, 2-3. Gladiolus, 4. Feverfew, 5. Echinacea, 6. Persimmon the chatty cat, 7. Rain falling into the bathtub pond)

Proud farmer moment: Distance learning and the 2nd grade read aloud is “In Enzo Splendid Garden.” In fancy outdoor restaurant, a bee lands on a tree and then a series of unfortunate and outrages events take place. Everyone blames the bee. And here is my kid yelling at the class “it’s not the bee’s fault! He is just minding his OWN BEE BUSINESS!!!” 😂😂😂 🐝 #farmkid #pollinators #savethebees #beebusiness #distancelearning

We are looking forward to cooler temperatures and rain next week. There is nothing like a really low farm pond, with grass already filling in, to demonstrate how dry and hot this summer has been. #dokofarm #farmpond #lowwater #summer

Our heritage turkeys take a full 28 weeks to grow on pasture, and develop their excellent flavor. Heritage turkeys are not selected to grow abnormally large breasts. This would interfere with their ability to live productive outdoor lives. Expect a normal ratio of breast to dark meat.

Just one more dog photo, because Larry and Potter are such good boys. They are so patient when I need to bath them, even though it is clearly not their favorite. Even more impressive when you consider they are working dogs, and have never even been bathed, until this summer, at age 9. Larry is inside for another two weeks, while we work on his health challenges, and Potter will be joining him, since he has managed to get an ear infection. #dokofarm #smallfarm #greatpyrenees #livestockguardiandogs #seniordogs #bathtime #brothers #goodestboys

Happy National Dog Day, from Doko Farm! At Doko Farm, we celebrate our Livestock Guardian Dogs everyday. Xenia, Larry, Potter, and Rookie, are our most valuable employees. They keep our livestock safe from predators, and allow us to sleep at night.

Sunday, this little 4lb male St. Croix lamb was born. As you can see by the pile of supplies in the background, his birth was a hard won victory. And a bit of good news that was sorely needed, after one of the harder weeks we have had at the farm. The second photo shows mom and lamb both doing well at two days old. #dokofarm #smallfarm #stcroixsheep #lambingseason #farmerlife #hardwork #smallwins

Larry update: Today Larry decided to tryout a new napping spot. That is in fact a bed. I’d say he still misses working on pasture, but he is making the most of his time inside. He really has improved a lot, but still has 5 more days of medication. After that he will be going back to the vet, to decide if he needs more time, or if he is cleared for going back to work. #DokoFarm #smallfarm #greatpyrenees #livestockguardiandog #socomfythough #goodestboy

Good morning from Doko Farm! I had an early morning that started when I was woken up by our livestock guardian dogs barking. I grabbed a flashlight and keys. Stepped into my boots and headed out to pasture. I was greeted by eyes right outside of pasture being reflected in my by to he beat of my flashlight. It was too dark to make out what it was in the dark and it quickly retreated. On pasture, Xena was protecting a perimeter around the ewes with lambs at the top of the pasture. We had just had two more ewes give birth, doubling our new lambs from 2 to 4. Great job to Xena, Rookie, Potter, and our 2 new St. Croix mamas! Time to head back inside and change out of my pjs. It is going to be a busy day. #dokofarm #sustainability #smallfarm #stcroixsheep #pastureraised #lambs #heritagebreeds #greatpyrenees #livestockguardiandogs #farmlife

We had a fun surprise during evening chores today! Ok it wasn’t a complete surprise. We had been watching “7” for weeks. We knew we were super close when she ate laying down last night, and was slow to leave this morning, when they were released from their sleeping quarters. “7” did an awesome job and has 2 healthy female lambs. These are the lambings I love. No assistance is needed and we just walk out to find healthy lambs cleaned up and nursing. They aren’t always this easy. Great job mama! #dokofarm #sustainable #smallfarm #stcroixsheep #lambs #pastureraised #heritagebreeds #happyfarmer

I have been busy rebuilding our website in Google Sites. Classic Sites is due to be discontinued in November (right during heritage turkey season!) As soon as our new website goes live, we will be able to open up our 2020 Heritage Turkey Reservations. We are so close!

Larry update: Larry is on 2 weeks of paid medical leave, while he rests and heals. His chest x-rays showed some concerning things including inflammation of the heart, and some fluid in or around his lungs. He has a good plan for recovery, and is enjoying his time off. Larry arrived at Doko Farm in January 2012. After 8 1/2 years of being a stellar livestock guardian dog he has more than earned a little R&R. Now we are moving around our other livestock guardian dogs, taking into consideration their skills and limitations, to make sure our flocks and herd are covered, especially since we are expecting lambs soon. We lost 5 chickens the first night Larry was off duty, but we are getting it figured out. #DokoFarm #sustainable #smallfarm #greatpyrenees #livestockguardiandog #thegoodestboy

Larry is sound asleep and snoring in the back of my car, waiting for his turn to see Dr. Jennerette. It is a cool 65 degrees in my car and he is so comfy. We are here to hopefully get the all clear for Larry to resume working on pasture, at least part time. He has improved so much since we brought him inside, on Sunday.

Larry overheated today. Now he is inside to cool down and get groomed. Which means (drumroll please) Xenia is taking the night shift! We couldn’t risk not having one of our livestock guardian dogs on duty, so close to lambing. Xenia is pretty happy to be back on pasture. (And Larry is happy to rotate out for a night.) #dokofarm #sustainable #smallfarm #livestockguardiandogs #greatpyrenees #stcroixsheep #pastureraised

Growing food justice efforts fight hunger in Columbia, creating oases in food deserts

The Pinehurst Farmer’s Market is getting more awesome press for their good work! I am so proud of April and my fellow farmer’s, and I am looking forward to Doko Farm returning to the farmer’s market in September.

Thousands of people in the Columbia area live in communities without easy access to a grocery store, and the coronavirus pandemic has worsened the hunger crisis for many families.

A rainbow over Doko Farm and our Narragansett Toms. You wouldn’t know it from the picture, but it was dumping rain just minutes earlier. For 5 minutes it poured. The same 5 minutes when we were herding the young turkeys, into their shelter for the night. And then as if on cue, it stopped as we closed the doors. We all are cooled off, the kids loved it, and chores are done for the night. #dokofarm #sustainable #smallfarm #pastureraised #narragansettturkeys #heritagebreeds #rainbow #farmlife

Xenia is inside for a little R&R, while she heals, away from the biting flies. Previously, when she has needed to be inside, she has stayed by kitchen door. This time she has made herself much more at home- even helping herself to this plaid chair, which has a stellar view of the pasture. My only complaint is that it is a bit cramped for two. #DokoFarm #greatpyrenees #livestockguardiandog #morningcoffee #farmlife

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!
