A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

10 sheep added to the farm in the month of January .

One new Border Collie added to the farm February 2008. One of four pigs growing fat. These little porkers will be ready to slaughter around the end of April. We purchased the 4 pigs in November 2007.
This is our "baby" jersey calf. She was born in June 2007 here on our farm. She is getting big! If she isn't standing side by side with her mother, sometimes I have a hard time telling if she is the calf or the momma cow!
Here is a dark picture of our black angus cow and our 2 jersey cows. The black angus cow calf pair came to our farm in December 2007.

Our farm has grown by leaps and bounds over the last few months. I guess it would be more accurate to say that our animal additions have grown these last few months. I am thrilled about the animals because to me animals are what makes a farm. Somebody recently asked me how long we had been farmers. That question caught me off guard because I don't even think of us as farmers yet. In my mind, you have to at least own a tractor to be a farmer!! However as each month goes by, Michael and I have taken yet another step into developing this land into more of a farm. Perhaps one day I will wake up to discover that we are "real" farmers!
grace and peace,

From the pictures, it looks as though you have a real farm on your hands. ;) Maybe a tractor is next.
