What Are We up to at Butte Mountain Farm? We will be hosting a class on Lifestyle Medicine on Thurs. Please see our Facebook page for the flier.
Farm dog at work. Ground squirrels are great fun to go after!
Hachiya persimmon flower. Can't wait until the Persimmons are ripe again! Love those dried persimmons! The persimmon muffins are a treat, too, and we do have those for sale!
Boysenberry blossoms! Can't wait for the harvest!!
Sheep are getting their jackets mended. Must hold together until the end of the month when the shearer comes. Then they all lose lbs and will need smaller jackets.
Saw one of these food mills in an antique store this week. I had no idea they were considered "antiques." I've used them for years. Does that make me antique, too? I'mm using it for making persimmon muffins and persimmon cookies with frozen Persimmons from the fall! They'll be for sale at the markets, come and try some!
Miner's lettuce is always greener on the other side of the fence even if it means you get stuck! Maxi was a little too greedy this morning. She was so stuck I couldn't get her out until backup came to help me. # cormo # sheep # fibershed #yarn #fleece
On Tuesday we had a wild wind rain and hail storm ... dog Dante was scared to death and tried to find a hiding spot. There wasn't much in the high tunnel except the mizuna bed. She was shaking so much every leaf around her was moving also. Poor thing!
Farmers' Market time! Come out and purchase some of the goodies winter brings! Soy and Corn free eggs and stewing hens! Greens and Garlic! Dog treats! Dried Herbs, Persimmons, Tomatoes & Hot Peppers!
