After basically months of 60 and 70 degree temperatures, winter finally decided to show up last night and dump a whole three inches of snow on the farm.
Three inches. I know! It's like snowpocalypse over here. But don't worry... because the ground is not cold at all, nearly all of the snow was gone by noon.
It's been a while since I've updated this blog and a proper catch-up is long overdue, but for the moment here quickly is our current situation:
- I'm still running my own full time soap business that has steadily done well for eight years now.
- Our herd of dairy goats is still going strong. Current count is 5 does (including Greta who is permanently retired due to her surgeries two years ago), 2 boys (our buck Tick and his buddy wether Arlo), and six babies. The kids are just approaching 3 weeks old and are all up for sale, going to new homes at 8 weeks.
- The Boy still works full time outside of the farm and spends his evenings and weekends doing projects around here.
- Farm improvements lately: All new pasture fencing, and expanded pasture areas. New mini-barn in the buck pasture. New mini-barn in the main doe pasture.
- New work van!
- And I'm sure several other things that I will think of later.
While this blog has been on a break of sorts, Instagram has not. Random snippets of life here on the farm are found there. (@BeamansFork) I'll be back soon with new blog updates from the farm.
For now it is time to pack for the market tomorrow and get a hot supper going. It is going to be 20 degrees tonight and after the non-existent winter we've had this year, I'm not looking forward to heading to the market at 6am. Oh well -- the heat and humidity will be here before we know it so I should enjoy the "cool" while it's here.
Hope all is well in your part of the world!
