Winter is hard on the farm and I think this year may be shaping up to be like THE LONG WINTER! It’s been terribly cold lately but the hogs and other livestock are doing well. It’s hard to believe though when you are out in the snow and wind. We’re actually farrowing right now and the piglets are staying warm in the huts, thank God! Videos coming soon!
Snow removal is a big job on the farm. Just when we open everything up we’re back at it again due to the winds and more snow! Chores are a bit easier when the walking paths and areas are open. A load of Organic Prairie pigs will be shipped on Thursday and we don’t want the truck to get stuck!
That’s all for now. We will be uploading some videos very soon, so stay tuned. I have to go out and wrap the bacon! Thankfully we filled the propane tanks to run a bit of heat in the butcher shop.
Life is good down on the farm. Yes it’s very good but by no means easy!!
