At the farm
Pacific Northwest rainy weather! We've got some beautiful shades of green out there!
Our surroundings are verdant and lush right now. Spring is still here, with no crazy bursts of 87 degree earth baking summer like days. Probably will slow down our tomatoes, cukes and squash a bit, but I think this lush spring weather is worth it!
Amber Waves of GrainRemember, we feed the pastured meat chickens and pastured pigs certified organic grains. 85% of the feed that we bring to the farm is for pigs and meat chickens and all of that feed is certified organic. The pastured sheep eat a lot of grass and no-spray hay (winter food) with brewers grains and some certified organic grain treats in the winter. The pastured layer hens are fed a non-medicated conventional grain feed and range all about from April-December. (read more about grain prices and switch back to conventional grain for layer hens at the blog.) We also have a great source of local brewers grains from the brewery down the road...non-GMO, cooked barley- it's like a oatmeal treat for the animals.
