We’ve recently weaned calves on my family farm. When they’re weaned, they get the good stuff. 🐮 It’s a ration that dad has used for YEARS, because it works. It has a little bit of molasses in it to make it sweet, and it’s one of my favorite smells around the farm. 🐮 “Yum, I LOVE the way that feed smells!” – me 🐮 “You can take a taste of it if you want…” – my dad 🙄🤣 GOOD ONE DAD 🐮 Anyone else have a farming father who makes “funny” jokes like mine? 💗 #TheFarmStory
This tiny little human, who isn't quite as tiny anymore, will be five soon. FIVE?! And she's been farming since the beginning. From the crappy little swing I put in my tiny little corner of the barn, the corner I called my "milking parlor," to being able to fully hook up a goat on our Grade A Pipeline. We've come a long way baby. And we're not stopping yet. I can't believe I get to be your Mama and I can't believe you get to grow up on this bit of Earth we call home. Our cup runneth over. #goatdairy #farmkids #thetiniestmilkmaid
In Nature, everything supports and feeds off of one another. There is no waste, only relationships. It’s a system, an endless web of life and connections. Organic farms know the strength of this system and actively cultivate it, by inviting Nature onto the farm and seeing the farm as a part of the overall ecology of the place. . This episode is about connections between animals, soil, and trees, and what one expert has discovered. The system is called Silvopasture. .

Saying so-long for now to all our wonderful farm critters. Sam & I head back to the city later today, which means no more daily morning chicken & cow visits. . We’re gonna miss them like crazy 💕 . . #happinessbytheacre #happinesscows #happinesschicks #farmmama #farmlife #farmkids #smallfarm #albertalife #albertafarm #mixfarm #ethicalfarming #holisticmanagement #pastureraised #grassfedcows #freerangechickens #farmadventures #endofsummer
