~Farrowing Pigs etc.~

Hey Mom, you there?

We had a very good Spring farrowing so far with only one sow left to farrow.  Weaning has now started and so far so good, thanks be to God!  We’ve had the Organic Apple Cider Vinegar running into their water the entire time and feel that it has improved their over all health.  We are always learning new things and try to incorporate them as we go.  
Marisa is calmly feeding hay to some very gentle piglets in this video clip below. 

Beautiful, healthy, happy Organic Prairie pork! See them smiling?

Silvana fed these 8 and 9 week old piggies!

There are 270 piglets as of today.

Meat birds and new laying hens are growing daily.  Below is how they looked this morning!

Here’s the beef!

 

We “got milk”……mostly for the lambs and calves!  That’s Bella milking this cow.

 

Home made baby lamb warmer Fred built from old bee boxes! We dropped very cold lambs in this heater and saved their lives!

Good American Lamb on God’s Green Earth!

Thank God for Sunday,  a day of rest, fun and company to cook for.  First Dutch oven pizza of the year turned out delicious.  The white pizza was the best in my opinion, Focaccia.  First Asparagus hunt as well.

Bella and Maggie asparagus hunting…..the easy way!

 

Life is good by golly!

 

 

 

 

 

 

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?
