We have EGGS!

We have added hens to our little farm. Since we brought them home, we've been getting 2-3 eggs every day! We get green, brown, and white eggs (of all sizes). I think we'll add more hens in the near future. They are so much fun to watch.

Lambs, Lambs, everywhere Lambs!!! We have brown ones, black ones, white ones, black and white ones, and whites with little brown splashes! What to do with them all ???

I've been quite busy lately so I must catch up with my lamb posts. Here they are.
Many lambs will be available this year as fiber pets - feel free to email me anytime for a listing. We will also be offering small starter flocks for those wanting to join the joy of raising Shetland Sheep.
