Lambs and Spring

 

FIRST DAY ON THE GRASS

Lambing season started April 3 and it came in with a bang during a huge blizzard! It ended May 9 and thankfully it was a good crop of lambs. We had three new Targhee bucks and they produced many triplets, 4 sets of quads, lots of twins and only 12 singles. We sold 3 bottle lambs and are still feeding 12 lambs now. Over all it was a very good season! We had to do a lot of shuffling around since our lambing pens could not keep up with the frequency of births.

As the snow melted here in SW Minnesota, the DSL lines were ruined as was our internet service. This makes my post pretty outdated.

All of the snow melted down creating for us some really luscious pasture!!

I’ll be posting soon about the farrowing season and other Spring projects!  I’ve got a load of garden asparagus to deal with today.  Life is good, down on the farm.

About Callens Honey Farm

We live on a small family farm located in S.W. Minnesota, near the South Dakota border. The source of our honey is from white and red clover. The honey appears as liquid gold in color. Our honey is extracted using a hand cranked centrifugal force extractor. Then the honey is screened once into a holding container from which we later fill the small honey bottles. We do not heat treat the honey nor add any other ingredients. Pure and natural is our Minnesota honey! What could taste better?
