Springtime Soon

The weather is warming, the ground is thawing and we are getting ready to prepare the soil for our very large vegetable and fruit gardens. Everything is exciting, and we are even tapping maple trees right now for making syrup! With everything going on, our hens are laying beautiful eggs, and our goat Dotty finally had her kid. Once all are weaned we will have plenty of milk for cheese and butter, and maybe even some yogurt! I have to get back outside now and start splitting more wood for next Winter, so please enjoy the photos below of our cat Fuzzball, our new baby goat, and our other goat Baby Blue who was born a month ago and is really loving the warm sun!

Some land is better than none, am I correct!? Thank you for the advice on the forum, and thanks for reading. Goats are great to keep, and you can even do well with a few dwarf goats, they offer milk with a high fat content and it makes cream cream and butter. My girls are 100 pounds each and a handful to work with but they say even the dwarf goats can give as much milk depending on how they were breed!

I just clicked over from BYC- love your blog! I’m a little jealous of the size of your property. My “farm” is under 3 acres. However, with the amount of work that is, I don’t know that I could handle 35. Those kids are so stinkin’ cute! That is my next addition, although I can’t hope for more than pygmy or dwarf goats since we have pretty strict township regulations regarding livestock (in the country, even).
