January on the Farm (2019)


Tunis Ewe




January on the farm has been pretty uneventful. The weather up until this last week was unseasonably warm. This past week has made up for that. We had opened up the barnyard so the sheep have more windbreak. Extra feed and free choice hay to help them stay warm. Today we will be opening up the barn in preparation for some record-breaking lows over the next few weeks.  I am glad we are not lambing right now!



Extra Feeding Time

In the winter we have the wash facilities closed in the mill, but we still have been busy processing wool, and making dryer balls. We are offering a few different sets right now.

Heading into February, I am usually fighting off the winter blues. Thank goodness for spinning, knitting and crafts! I did get an amazing Christmas gift from my family, a Schacht Sidekick (traveling wheel). I have wanted one for quite some time, I feel completely spoiled! It has been fun playing with it. It will be perfect for our monthly spinning meetings and camping trips!

I hope everyone is doing well and able to find a way to keep their animals warm during this cold spell. I know it is going to be a challenge.

Stay Warm!
