So excited!! That is 30 bulbs of garlic for Torshi Seer. Simple pickled garlic. 1 teaspoon of salt to a quart and vinegar of your choice to cover. I went with apple cider vinegar. This made about 2 quarts. We have to wait at least 8 weeks before we try it and the best ones are around 7 years old. Can we even make it that long?

Garlic we planted was Music, Georgian Fire and Purple Glazer from Territorial Seed.

We have been asked by many people about our sheep. I thought it would be good to give you all a bit more information. The type of sheep we own are classified as hair sheep. They do not need to be sheared like wool sheep. They shed their hair. We have breeds: St Croix as well as Dorper crossed with St Croix. These sheep are more for meat production, resale and land clearing. They have great parasite resistance and tend to lamb (birth) with little to no assistance. We have processed many in the past and they yield a good percentage of meat for their age and body structure. The quality of lamb I myself hold higher than Icelandic lamb. We have found people who are not fond of lamb actually enjoy the flavor of these breeds. Please feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions.

Drove to Kentucky to get some girls. Was a haul of a trip but very worth it. Excited to see more sheep up on our hill.
