Learn Ranching by Volunteering

We’ve now been in the farming/ranching business for 15 years. I don’t count the first year we bought the place. That was mostly cleaning the property and getting our sea legs or should I say our “critter” legs. Those of you that have been acquainted with us all this time know we started with Tennessee […]

Persimmon Trees in the Orchard

Last fall we planted 12 Fuju Persimmon Trees, a non-astringent type, in the back easement. Then we decided to set aside five acres of a back pasture and turn it into a full orchard. This spring we planted 14 Mayhaw Trees (No they don’t have to be in water). This week 49 more Persimmon Trees […]

Long Hot Summer!

What has been going on since the Mayhaw Festival. Mostly we’ve been trying to avoid the heat. That means chores get done in the morning, though not all that early. It’s a myth that all farmers get up before dawn. I might wake up as the first light hits the windows but my first motion […]

Blooms! Blooms! Blooms! On the Mayhaw Trees

Unless there is an unusual weather phenomenon, it appears we will have a great crop of berries.  The Mayhaw trees began blooming earlier this month and now are covered in leaves. Fred went out to see how they were looking, however, it is too early to find berries. We will be checking each week. The […]

Vendors at the Mayhaw Festival

We are beginning to invite and organize the local crafts people, farm producers and educators for the this year’s Mayhaw Berry Harvest Festival. Our own Charissa is busy making her felt critters. It is Mother’s Day weekend and Spring is in the air! There will be some really cute critters to choose from. We’ve been […]

EZ A-Frame Hutches

Those that have been here before have seen the EZ A-Frame Hutches we keep in the pastures. We have them available particularly for the goats. They hate to get wet. They are also nice for the dogs both in the pastures and particularly in the kennel yards for boarding dogs. They are light color so […]

Goats and Kids Galore

We have twenty new kids prancing around the farm. Ten of these are the Miniature Tennessee Fainting Goat. Two little girls are going to their new home in Woodville. The others are from a breed we are developing for hardiness and parasite resistance. All doing splendidly. The fainting goat kids will be available for sale by mid-March. […]

What’s happening with the Mayhaws?

The Mayhaw Festival will be the second weekend in May. Saturday May 7 and Sunday May 8. The hayride will be running and all the newborn kids will be in the Petting Place. We will snuggle them up close so everyone can feed and pet them. About the harvest… well, we just don’t know yet. […]

Fire Ants are Beneficial?

We are beginning to see mounds of fire ants now that Spring is coming. Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is our safe and environmentally friendly way of balance the benefits with human comfort. This link Fire Ants is informative and fun to read. Yes there are benefits to the little (fill in the blank) critters. Here are […]

The Year of the Girl!

That’s goat girls not people girls. We have sixteen new goat kids so far and only two are males. I’ve been told that nature knows when there are too many little males and gives us all females. Sounds like an “ole wives tale” to me but I’m happy. Mini Myotonics The photo on the left […]
