Man it’s been awhile!

Posted by on August 17, 2011 in On the farm

Well guys it’s been a busy time at the farm…between milking, making cheese, mucking out pens (yay monsoon season), weeding, etc.  And on top of that school, work, and regular maintenance of the house…whew so much to do!

Anyways, we’ve tried our hand at a few simple cheeses and working on some plans for a cheese press.
So far what we’ve tried so far has been pretty delicious, stuffed shells and ricotta, mozzarella, pizza etc…all have been successful experiments.

The frozen yogurt seems to be a hit especially with all the fresh fruit in season right now.

We’ve sold two of our kids, to the owner of Bountiful Baskets, Dahlia and Timmy are now at their new home.

We are still getting about 3qts to a gallon of milk a day so feel free to come by and try some 😉

With all the heat our chickens have stopped laying for the past 3 or 4 weeks but today we got our first and only egg thus far since they stopped laying…best yet I believe it is from our newest batch of girls given to us from a wonderful member of the Vally Permaculture Alliance!

Hopefully there will be more updates soon! Stay in touch!
