ZiegenVine Homestead

ZiegenVine Homestead Established 2014 Randy and Allison started this journey later in life than most people consider starting a farm! We have many plans for the homestead/farm - it is a daily process.
(6)

From raising chickens and ducks for eggs and meat to gardening, goats, pigs and hopefully so much more. Welcome to our farming/homesteading journey. Be sure to check out http://ziegenvinehomestead.blogspot.com/ for more stories about our journey.

What started off as a rainy morning turned into a fabulous day to for our 3rd of July Goat Yoga on the Homestead. Once again we feel honored to share our land with yogis and Hipcamp(ers) alike!

We love the joy the goats bring to yoga!

Happy Independence Day!

When a goat, in this case Lillie, takes over your yoga mat during goat yoga what do you do?  Go will the flow!

Feeling so blessed for the break in the rain for Goat Yoga on the Homestead today! Happy Independence Day to everyone!!! We hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Special shout out to instructor Elizabeth Moses of Crystal Heart Yoga
, Li and Natalie of Balanced Beginnings K9, Claire and Liv for helping out today!! This mornings session was successful because of you! And of course a special thanks to the hubs who made the very difficult decision to stay on the farm to help with yoga instead of going to play bagpipes in a parade.

Lovin’ where people place their “Piece Out” stickers!!! For those that don’t know- the Mr of the farm had an accident last November and lost 1/2 of his right index finger. Thankfully he has healed- and in case you are wondering- no they couldn’t re-attach it- and no it won’t grow back. He is managing fine now and is even back to playing the bagpipes! I am so thankful for his sense of humor- the Piece Out sticker was his idea!!! You can purchase one in our farm store for $3.00. #thankful #greatful #blessed #pieceout #peaceout. Thanks for stopping by Dave!

Control of Gypsy Moth - Mechanical - Tactics for mechanical removal of gypsy moth egg masses can be effective for individual yard trees but are not effective as a forest-wide control method. Methods include removal of egg masses before they hatch and removal of objects where egg masses can be hidden by females. Another control tactic is wrapping burlap around the trunks of trees where gypsy moth larvae can hide during the day. The larvae hiding under the burlap are then scraped into a can of soapy water, killing the larvae. Sticky tape around the trees can also be used to en-trap larvae as they move down the trees to hide during the day.

Welcome to the farm! The Mrs picked up our nuc of Bees 🐝 Friday night at 8 pm. Got them back up the farm at 9:30. Transferred the frames Saturday afternoon. Now to keep them safe and happy!

05/22/2021

I picked up our bees at 8 pm last night...got home at 9:30 put the nuc next to the hive box, opened the screen a little and walked away for the night. This morning- I fully removed the screen. Only one little guard bee came at me and she wasn’t all that aggressive. For some reason I thought the bees would come flying out of the hive- you know- like dogs when you get home after a long day or chickens being let out of the coop... nope these ladies are chill! I sat down on the rocks and peeked into the box to make sure they are really in there! I’m going to need to put a bench out there. Welcome to the farm bees!!!

05/22/2021

Picked up new livestock today... hehehe An hour+ drive there and an hour+ drive home the bees are now on the farm. Hope they have a peaceful night in their nuc and we will check on them tomorrow morning during chores! #bees #farmlife

This! The Homestead needs one...or two!
We had so much fun Saturday! Thank you for letting Thomas be a goat herder. He talked about his adventure with everyone that would listen. You made his weekend! 😀
Will there be any dates in September?
