10th Annual Farm Tour

The Fall Farm Tour is this weekend. Since this newsletter is so late, we hope you’ve heard about it on TV or radio, and seen the booklets where you shop. We will be open… well, we’re pretty much always open. The Farm Tour will be happening from 10 am to 4 pm both Saturday and […]

Storm in Sympathy with Texas

Last night we had a such a violent storm, I felt it was in sympathy with Texas. The lightning, especially in my second story bedroom, was blinding and constant. Between the thunder and lightning Bailey wouldn’t even stay upstairs with me. The power went out of course. It turned out to be from one of […]

Ranchers Journal – Thursday August 17, 2017

Got started late and stayed out longer than I expected to. So this will be brief – or at least that’s the plan. Once I get to ‘talking,’ I find I have lots to say! One of the things I did this morning was to make an extra trip to check minerals. The goats need […]

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 […]

Musings from the Farm

Miscellaneous Musings

Our Summer Intern Well Suheily (pronounced Sue Haley) has finished her internship here at the farm.  She joined our family and workforce with abandon. She has a great mind, is motivated and self disciplined. Once shown a job or project she jumped in and did it. Certainly made my job easier but forced me to […]

What’s Been Going on at The Farm?

Well, it has been an interesting month since I last wrote. Busy! A cold! These are just two of the excuses. My knee is getting better all the time. I’m no longer in the pain that started this whole episode, however, I’m still not walking as well as I should be. My therapist, Dr. Russo, […]

Chicks and Kids

We finally moved the chicks from the house utility room bathtub to a large container in the barn where we can keep a heat lamp going. They need warmth for the first few weeks. Momma usually takes care of that when she puts them under her wings, but there isn’t a momma big enough for […]

Rain Wonderful Rain and How It Affects the Ranch

Thank you tropical storm Lee. We all appreciate the 1″ of rain on Sunday and more again this Labor Day. A welcome respite from the drought covering this area of the south. It is messy for the boarding dogs and they are spending more time than usual inside. They get taken out for a quick […]
