Pigs all loaded up for their vacation and found out we had a flat tire on the stock trailer. So thankful for having resourceful friends, with tires on hand.

Also thankful that I didn’t return Matthew Mangan floor jack! 🙂

We were able to change out the tire and stay on pace for their trip in the morning. We certainly don’t want to delay the fun!

We ended up losing 90 chicks of our batch of 250.
When they should have been here, they instead were still sitting In Minnesota for a full day. Although they didn’t have to, Welp Hatchery did the right thing and refunded us all that died upon arrival. We are so grateful that this company took care of the situation. Very impressed, and will be using them again. But we decided to wait until the crazy is over before shipping across the country.
Chicks are doing great now, happy, warm and growing!

A little cuteness to start our day.

Days on the farm are always full of hard work. Most days are fun. Today was just a hard day.
Chicks came a day late, which means they spent one full day longer in the mail than they should have. No water, no food, no heat lamps. A lot came dead, a lot have died since they’ve been home, and more will die. Days like this happen. Death on the farm occurs. But it never gets easier.

Can you spot the king of the flock?
He’s one of our few chickens we’ve named ( Big Bird )
We only have one rooster ( his choice ) . He is quiet, docile, good to the kids, and very protective towards his girls. Nearly every day he protects them from a hawk.
He’s a little extra special to us because we incubated him from an egg. He’s a Leghorn/Barahma mix

I’m times like these, my bearded ladies still produce faithfully, milk, yogurt, cheese and butter for 8 families every week. We are so happy to have them. Any homestead family should consider having goats.

Set up the fence on dry ground today to keep the chickens out of the mud!
We use these electric net fences from Premier 1 Supplies to allow our chickens to free range safely. It keeps away dogs, coyotes, Coons, possums and also keeps them out of the garden with plenty of space to move, scratch and eat bugs. They were happy for their new explorations.

The Path To Our Farm

In 2010 our family made the decision to begin eating better. We wanted more nutrient dense food, sourced locally. We started shopping locally at co-ops, local heath stores and visiting farmers markets. We noticed such a difference in quality of food, our health and the way we felt after meals. We stopped eating out as frequent and ate fresh!

In 2014 we decided that we were capable of raising meat and veggies for our own family. The only problem was, we were renting, and didn’t have the ability to raise and grow where we were. So, the hunt was on to buy our own farm! This was an adventure of its own and the process was long and hard. Finally, in 2016 we purchased our own farm on 3.5 acres. We began with goats for milk, and a small veggie garden. The Spring of 2017 we purchased our first laying hens. I was supposed to only get 8, but 16 came home with us. We increased our garden space significantly. The Spring of 2018 we added pigs and meat chickens.

By this time, our farm was really growing. We had always had Goat Herd Shares for people to get milk. This helped pay for the feed, and some of the farm expenses for the first few years. But once we started getting into the pigs and meat chickens, our farm expenses started to rack up. We decided we needed to start making some income on the farm. We sold pigs for meat, and partnered with another family to raise chickens for them which paid for ours. But the farm vision was just beginning.

The Winter of 2018 God put it on our hearts to use the farm as a ministry. We valued so much from learning, raising and eating our own locally sourced, nutrient dense food that we wanted to share it with those in need. While serving at local food pantries, we noticed the need for fresh, nutrient dense food. We decided that God had gifted us with the passion and abilities to help our community in this area.

In 2019 we raised 500 chickens for meat. 200 of those chickens went for donation. We raised 5 pigs for meat and continued to grow our garden. Of course, the goats have always been around.

For 2020 we are still finalizing our plans, but one thing is for sure, we are still growing! We are working on many of our efficiencies and working to expand our customer base. We love the life on the farm and all the new people we have connected with. We are excited to see what God continues to challenge us with in the future at Shafer Family Farm.
