Busy Week!

This week has been super busy. One of those weeks where recording things here seems to slip off the list of things to do for the day. Here's the highlights:

RAIN!  Lots of it...  We are literally flooded. and that leads ...

MUD! Lots of it... Driveways, pastures, gates, pretty much everything. In fact, for the first time since we moved in 8 years ago... we have mud inside the barn.

Lambs! Lots of them. They seem to all arrive in groups, anytime of day, and in the worst weather. even with the few hours of sunshine, it has been a constant battle to keep them dry and warm as they come into our world.  We will get a head count soon and publish some numbers.

Feed has been a problem... with the loss of our main grain supplier for sprouted grains, we have been scrambling from month to month to keep these guys fed. So far so good, but we have now resorted to going out of state to find enough grain of a decent quality at a decent price.

We did manage to get a few days of work in the kitchen to package some items that have been waiting like lard, broth, etc.  Still to come are soaps.

Slowly expanding to out of state members and shipping. So far so good, but we are going slowly to make sure we dont get overwhelmed.

Cash flow... always a challenge in farming.

But overall.. we are moving forward, picking up new customers, and settling in to 2016.
