Somebody new is coming to join our farm on Saturday, so we had to install a small piece of new fence. Once Ted got started, the cattle were absolutely fascinated by the auger on the tractor. It was all I could do to keep them away from it so they didn't get hurt while he … Continue reading Settin’ fence

Meatbird time again!
The day before we went to Chicago, we went to Tractor Supply for some little item...and I saw these... This happened to be the half off bin which made the meatbirds 99 cents each, and I could not pass up such a great deal! I came home with 13 of the little boogers. I couldn't … Continue reading Meatbird time again!

The only thing he wouldn't do … Continue reading Little farm boy
We did it!
It was time...we had to trade off the old trailer. It just wasn't going to to meet our needs any longer. We bought this beautiful new 16' Corn Pro to meet the growing needs of our farm, and we couldn't be happier with our experience at Lance's Trailer Sales in Athens, Ohio! If you need … Continue reading We did it!
I was heading to town at lunch the other day and noticed the chickens were all grouped inside the covered run. The rooster was crowing every so often, and he was keeping the hens behind him. Suddenly, a heavy shadow broke from the trees and drug across the chicken run like fingernails on a chalkboard! … Continue reading Chicken hawks!
