God’s perfect plan for the birth including the baby arriving before the midwife, so Harley had the blessing of delivering the baby! We are so thankful for all of His servants who made this wonderful experience possible, and our amazing network of family and friends who support us as parents.

We have enjoyed resting and recovering at home as a family this last week, and all of us are doing very well!

Rabbit Kits For Sale

We have several recently weaned litters of heritage Silver Fox rabbits for sale. We have a wide selection of colors and genetics available!

To learn more about Silver Fox rabbits as breeders or pets, read our webpages here: breeding stockpet rabbits. Contact us via those pages to reserve rabbits now!

Pigs Available For Roasting and Breeding

We have a few pigs for sale. 2 piglets born in April, barrows, would be great to either harvest now as roasting pigs, or raise through next summer to process for pork. The piglets are 30-40lbs now. They cost $70/each or $100 for both.

We also have 2 breeding sows for sale. They are both expected to farrow in September, having last farrowed in April. Sows are $200 each, or $350 for both.

Read more about American Guinea Hogs on our website hereContact us to buy any of these pigs.

This past weekend we rotated our guinea hogs to a new portion of our orchard. The move here necessitated letting the pigs loose from their last pen, and enticing them to walk about 20 feet over to this new pen. Of course they always wander a bit during the move, but a bucket of grain usually motivates a few into the new pen, and the rest quickly follow. We had a big pile of brewing grain in the new pen so the pigs could eat up!

We seeded cover crops in this area after the pigs were last in here, and over the past few months the cover crops grew to make quite the jungle! The pigs will make quick work of it, though. They’ll eat all that forage down, and keep more weeds from growing in the orchard.

We have a total of 3 orchard spaces we use to rotate the pigs. While guinea hogs aren’t nearly as destructive to the soil as other pig breeds are, they still make their pens a muddy, stinky mess. Rotating them helps alleviate erosion and smell, plus it’s healthier for the animals.

8/10 Update: hog shares no longer available. Pigs: 2 feeder pigs born in April are still available. $70/each or $100 for both.

UPDATE: SOLD

We are selling our Nigerian Dwarf buck Champ. Champ has a great personality, and is easy to handle. He’ll go anywhere for a bucket of feed.

Champ’s healthy, and has had no ailments. I have test results showing he’s negative for CAE/CL/Johnes. We’ve taken good care of him with routine health checks, hoof trimming, etc. and I can provide you a record of his health checks over the past two years. He is ADGA registered, and I can give you his registration # to see his pedigree. DOB 3/20/2013.

Champ has successfully sired many kids during his time with us. He makes some pretty cute kids! The kid pictured above is one of Champ’s offspring.

If you are serious about your goat herd, Champ is a high quality, healthy animal that will be a joy to work with.

Please contact us with any questions, and when you’d like to see/purchase Champ.

Our pigs have been breeding well, so we find ourselves with more pigs then we need at the moment. If you are looking for breeders or feeders, we have both available.

Contact us to learn more.  Include what you’re hoping to do with pigs, and where you’re located, and we’ll be happy to see what we can do to help you meet your pig goals!

Mark your calendars and reserve your spot for the Raising Rabbits class! You’ll want to attend if you are considering raising meat rabbits or would like to gain insight to improve your existing rabbitry.

In the class we’ll cover health care, feeding, housing, breeding, and have a dispatching and processing session!

We have two special offers for class attendees: 50% off their purchase of rabbit meat in the farm store immediately following the class, and 20% off the rabbit tractors listed below!

The class is next Saturday, July 29th, 9am-12pm. The cost is $20/person or $40/family. Contact us now to reserve your spot in the class.

Rabbit Tractors For Sale

2 Rabbit or chicken tractor pens for sale. These are currently configured to be stationary rabbit housing elevated off the ground with cinder blocks or something similar. By simply cutting some zip ties to removed the hardware cloth along the bottom, you can use these as portable pens (“tractors”) to graze the rabbits on pasture.

Feeders are attached to tractors and included. Dimensions are 3′ wide, 5′ long, 2′ high. Bottom and sides have 2×4″ horse fencing, plus 1/2″ hardware cloth on the bottom, and either 1″ or 2″ chicken wire on the sides.

These are setup so that rabbits will stay off their droppings (either by being elevated or if on grass, being moved daily), which is key for rabbit health.

Tractors were carefully designed to be easy to use, lightweight, but sturdy. They keep rabbits in and predators out!

Tractors are $100 each. Special offer of 20% off for anyone who attends the rabbits class next Saturday! Contact us to purchase the rabbit tractors.

Junior Rabbits For Sale

We have some recently weaned rabbit litters for sale! Does and bucks are available as breeding stock. Details of the most recently weaned litters are below. Read our breeding stock page and fill out the breeding stock order form to get rabbits now!

 

Goat doeling for sale for $150! Clover was born 5/28/2017 to Bunny, sired by Champ (see parents here). Clover is a mini-Alpine (Alpine/Nigerian Dwarf), and is registerable. This was Bunny’s second kidding for us, and both times she kidded with no assistance. Clover was a twin, too, so hopefully she has genetics to twin. We hope Clover inherited her mom’s good kidding genes!

Clover nursed for the first few hours (dam is CAE negative) and has been bottle fed ever since. She’s very friendly and bonded to humans.

Clover will make a great dairy doe for someone’s dairy. Contact us now to buy her!

New Buck in Rabbitry!

Last month we did a rabbit trade and acquired a new, unrelated buck for our rabbitry. Everyone please welcome Miles Davis, Jr!

Miles Davis Jr

He comes to us from Kentucky, and we love that he’s a big guy weighing in at over 10lbs! No kits sired by him have been born yet, but we are excited to see how they grow. Miles will also allow us to continue providing breeding stock to our repeat customers who are interested in new bloodlines.

The acquisition of Miles Davis, Jr. is just one of several updates we’ve done to our rabbitry stock. Visit the Our Rabbits page to see all of our current breeders.

We have several young litters that will be available as breeding stock over the summer. Visit our breeding stock page and fill out an order form if you’d like to get rabbits today!

As a lovely spring week comes to a close, we are thankful for all the good things that have happened.

Ripening Peaches

This week we harvested our first peaches of the season! Many more are ripening on the trees. It’s been years of watering, pruning, and otherwise taking care of these trees as they grew and matured to the point where they’d fruit. We’re excited to have our first peach harvest.

Pigs Enjoying Fresh Ground

The pigs are in the goats’ winter pen now, and they’re enjoying the grass and weeds growing there! Their time in this pen serves a few purposes. Most obviously, it gives the pigs fresh ground to root around in, feeding them naturally. Their rooting and eating provides a side benefit of disrupting the life cycle of goat parasites, which lessens the parasite load in the pen. This allows us to reduce the frequency with which we must use chemical dewormers on our goats, too!

This week we received our latest order from Whispering Willow, our friends’ soap company in North Carolina. We are now fully stocked in all of the products we carry, including one new offering! We now offer a 64oz hand soap refill for $35 in all of the hand soap varieties: tea tree, peppermint, lemongrass, and lavender. These are perfect for refilling the beautiful Whispering Willow glass hand pumps, or to refill your own decorative hand soap pump! You can see all of our Whispering Willow offerings on our soaps and bath products page.

When you visit farms on the farm tour and buy their products, you are making a huge impact on the local economy. A study found that “a dollar spent buying directly from a farmer has about twice the impact on the local economy as spending a dollar on food that goes through a middleman- a supermarket, for example.”

Goat Milk Herd Share

Our dairy goats kidded this spring, providing us with delicious goat milk, and we have a few spots available in our goat milk herd share.

Did you know that goat milk is a frequently consumed milk worldwide? Compared to cow milk, goat milk has many benefits including that it’s easier to digest and higher in calcium (source). Often those with cow milk allergies enjoy goat milk with no issues!

Read all about the herd share here, and contact us to sign up or ask questions.

Senior Breeding Rabbits For Sale

With so many endeavors on the farm, we’ve found we need to streamline our rabbitry. This is one of the rare occasions where we have senior, breeding age rabbits for sale.

Contact Us to reserve one of these rabbits or inquire further.

Oh my goodness the last few weeks have been BUSY! You may have been able to tell that based on the lack of blog posts. So much has happened: pigs taken to the processor, springtime work completed, but today I’m going to focus on the new life that’s joined the farm this week.

Piglets Born

On Sunday evening Rizzo the American Guinea Hog gave birth to 6 sturdy piglets. Sow and piglets are doing great. The piglets are nursing well, and Rizzo is an attentive mother. After a couple of days the piglets are exploring the world outside their house. Soon I expect them to be running around the pen!

Goat Kid Born

On Monday Sunflower kidded one buckling. This was Sunflower’s first kidding, and she did great. As soon as the kid was born, she was there cleaning him up and taking care of him.

The buckling is healthy and very friendly! After initially letting him drink colostrum from Sunflower, we’ve been bottle feeding him. He loves people, and has fun playing with Rebecca!

This buckling is available for purchase. He can be left intact, or wethered to be a pet. Price is $75. Contact us for details.
