Bob is bottle feeding several of the new lambs, our neighbor is coming over with another wagon load of hay, and it is not raining. I am thinking about baking bread. This is going to be a good day!
I want to be in the garden but I am not. Rain rules this week. The solution is to make a big pot of chicken soup and invite a few friends for lunch.
One more set of Polypay twins lambs was born this morning. (One ram and one ewe) That makes a total of 16 lambs so far.Â Lambs can be picked up at Milk and Honey farm on or after June 15th. Both ewes and rams are available.Â In addition, we have two yearling ewes for sale.Â […]
I had forgotten how good an old fashioned Egg Salad sandwich can be.Â Hard boil a dozen eggs, add a can of tuna and chopped up dill pickles, celery, and onions.

Easter Sunday welcomed anotherÂ set of twin lambs. That makes 14 new born lambs in the barn.Â Our visiting friends got to take pictures and record the event. I got to help the Mother sheep deliver the second lamb. Mom and both twins doing good this morning. The miracle of birth is a beautiful thing.
They watch carefully, very carefully.
Our “Lamb Team” did good! Really, really, good!
