Merry Christmas from the Farm Family!

Many years I have had baby goats being born in November and December so I didn’t get much of a holiday break. This year I decided to try and make a calendar of rest seasons. December being one of them.

🐐🐐🐐

I have enjoyed spending as much time with my kiddos as possible this week and I look forward to a new year full of a new way to look at farm life!!!

🎁🎄🎁

Do any of you plan your year around rest seasons? It’s a new thought for me!

I just received word that the market plans to close July 18- mid October. So please stock up and make sure to leave your email with Genesis today at the market or send it to me here on Instagram so we can stay in touch!

My farm is in the midst of planning a pick-up point in collaboration with other vendors to be able to provide you with nutrition rich food in a safe and easy manner so everyone can enjoy predictably raised and delivered food during this unpredictable time. We expect our cheese renewal license to arrive any day now and cheese will be include!!!

Please let us know if your interested in being in on that. And if goat milk is something you would pick up on the regular if we included it.

Eggs: Who knew these little miracle orbs would soon become so extra precious? ( check the last paragraph if you're having a hard time finding eggs)
🥚🥚🥚

These are duck eggs. Here on the farm we keep a hen flock that roams the farm on clean-up duty, but they are Wiley and Sneaky and we have to go find their nests. The ducks stay in a pretty little yard inside the garden, complete with pond and very cooperatively lay their eggs inside the enclosure!
🦆🦆🦆

My sweet friend Kristi and I plan to start partnering and feeding a few special families here in the Rio Grande Valley in May. We will provide fresh food from our farms, pork, lamb, beef, eggs, and veggies. If we can get it the licensing figured out milk and cheeses too! (let us know if you want to apply to be one of those families!)
🐖🥚🐄

We have a whole new set of hens that have begun laying and we have some eggs to share. If you interested in being a weekly customer let me know! In order to comply with distancing, pay online and we leave them by the garden gate in an ice chest with your name on them. (some veggies available too) In theses crazy days it's good to know your food has only been touched by one set of hands.

Do you know this guy has taken over the morning milking for me?

Our family operates as a team. We all enjoy living on a farm, and have had so many discussions on how as a family we work as a team. The kids realize that to keep our lifestyle we all have to pitch in.

In the mornings we all go to the barn together. We work, play music, and enjoy each other. We devide up chores according to each persons ability so we can get it all done!

This quarter Crawford chose miking the 12 does with the machine. He does an amazing job and this is the rich nutrient dense milk is what we use for our cheeses and our soaps.

Seeds sprouting always give me new hope of wonderful things to come, as Easter should, but Easter so early gets sidetracked.

What does your Easter weekend usually look like for you?

Is yours a bit like mine? Full of family, delicious food, clean new clothes possibly in refreshing pastel colors, lots of family and Church.

Friday and Saturday are full of egg hunts with freinds, easter parties, and hopefully an easter meal with Jakes parents, I really love when we have a Seder meal.

Sunday is s flurry of feed the aimals, try and get clean,scarr down a breakfast, maybe hunt eggs and hopefully get to church on time. Our church does a wonderful Job of a resurrection story, baptisms and an easter meal.

Though we try mightily and do a decent job of weaving the story of Gods git to us and Jesus's sacrifice into our activities, the weekend rushes by so fast. It is so full it leaves little time for reflection and time with GOD and our children, especially as a momma with little children.

So this easter at home is just maybe what the world really needed. Let's bask in Gods love as our worldy traditions are stripped away and we can focus on what Easter really is-The fulfillment of Gods promise to save us, the weaving of the Gospel story, and in a time when it seems like alot of hope is lost he in his great mercy he has given us the ultimate hope. Everlasting life with him.

John 11:25-26
Jesus said to her. "I am the resurrection and the life. Whosoever believes in me, though he dies, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?"

I miss you guys!

I always thought life here on the farm is pretty secluded. I realize now that I was quite wrong!!

We are, but through my desire to share the farm we have so many more events, school tours, people dropping by and work-days with other farmer friends than I ever realized! With the cancelation of Spring on the Farm, all my spring school tours AND the farmers markets I feel quite left out and my creative well is running a little dry!
🐐

Help my momma brain out! What can I do to make you guys still feel connected and still share a bit of the farm with your family?? any Ideas?
👩‍🌾

Meanwhile, I’m sending you lots of virtual hugs and these cute little faces.

Happy Monday!
Mondays are usually a day I get back on track from the crazy weekend. We have farm events and market prep on Fridays, church and farm projects on Saturdays are more events and the farmers market, and Sundays are full of church family and feeding animals.
🛁👬🐐👶⛪

So on Mondays I try and recover. I start laundry, clean and tidy up, we try and get school off on a good foot for the week, hopefully take a nap and rest a bit, then start meal planning. What do your Mondays look like? Do you have crazy work weekends like us and use Mondays to recover and get back on track? Or do you rest on weekends so you can hit the ground running on Monday?

Isn’t she cute?
We raise dairy goats, all growing up I raised dairy goats and meat goats. This is a FIBER goat, she’s an Angora goat that is raised for her fiber which is called mohair.
🐐
This is our first year with them and I have been having a hard time this first kidding season. She is the only surviving baby out of our four mommas.
👨‍🌾💔
Being a farmer is hard, it takes a lot of experimentation, learning, hard knocks and plenty of praying!
Since these goats are growing fiber and not milk or meat they have different mineral and nutritional needs. Now we believe we figured out what caused the other babies to be weak (and mommas to not feed them and/or lay on and squash some of them) Angoras are notoriously bad mothers ( according to my ranching family members) and need lots of extra help that my dairy goats do not. But.......

We have a good game plan for next year and that is all we can do.
Meanwhile we named her Fifi and she will get all the LOVE!

This kid has been gardening with us since before he could walk.
He LOVES it. Here he is eating one of our first blood oranges but you can visit my stories to see him chomping on a Brussel sprout.
👨‍🌾🌱🤷

My hope is to share the world of gardening and using your hands to grow food with every child I possibly can, as well as give parents the tools to help them learn. Thats why we have so many events on the farm! I have a vlog series in the works to talk with other experts about children nutrition and how we can get them more involved...I do have to warn you to be patient with me on that. So many things to do! Though right now I am knee deep in planning Farm Camp and am getting so excited, there is so much to share and so many fun hands on things to do!! I wish It was month long camp! Here is my farm camp garden day video link from our first farm camp, look at baby Emma Colleen!!!

How in the world did I end up with 80 something goats??
💓🐐💓
I had goats most of my childhood from 2-18.
but ThIS is the tale of the beginning of our families goat story....
When we found out I was pregnant with Crawford we decided to move home so he could grow up with both sets of grandparents.
We bought a trailer and moved it to my grandparents property, where they just so happened to have 10 acers of EMPTY pasture land.
❤️👩‍🌾❤️
So of course as I get closer to delivering Crawford my wheels begin spinning about him having the best nutrition possible and how we could grow it. We got a few hens, Jake began gardening… and I began dreaming of probiotic rich raw milk, homemade yogurt, creamy cheeses…. and goats.

Jake was convinced that having a newborn and caring for and milking goats would be way too much work for me to handle. (up until then we had 2 dogs and 3 chickens and that was it)

I begged and begged and began to secretly search craigslist. Where I found.. wait for it.. 2 $100 goats. That’s where the real story began. Next chapter tomorrow!

I know this picture is a bit blurry..it is baby Kaid bottle feeding a lamb, but it is an important milestone in our farm Story. Why? Do you remember the lamb being born in my stories last week? The big guy that I helped get un-stuck?
💓
Well. This is his grandmother Lamby as a baby. One night I got a call from an old friend and they said, we have a baby lamb who’s mother rejected it, we do not have time to bottle feed and it will most likely die. Do you want it? Of course I said yes, even if I didn’t want it how could I leave it to die? We brought her home and Crawford who was 3.5ish at that point named her Lamby the lamb. (I know so creative, DO NOT ask a kid under 5 to name anything if you want creative)
💓
Lamby not only survived but she lived in our living room for quite some time, was loved on at may petting zoos and has since given us a pair of lambs every year, a male and a female. The males have lived wonderful lives and fed us, and the females have stayed and had their own babies. We have several males that will become food to nourish families and Next Spring we will have 7 momma sheep that are all daughters and granddaughters of Lamby.

(ps some baby lambs will be in with the goat cuddles at the farm this Friday!)
