We are milking! Finally, after a long haul, we are milking again. Our boys have been fantastic, jumping back into the rhythm they new as young kids. Page and Christopher have joined the crew, a welcome addition -- their enthusiasm and hard work helped enormously.
On Monday, we made fresh cheese with our fresh sheep milk. The milk was absolutely lovely, rich and creamy. And it didn't travel far! Only from the sheep to the bulk tank to the cheese vat. A cheesemaker's dream.
FEBRUARY 9, 2013
What a spectacular week. When I woke up Monday morning, our nursery barn had no doors, no heat, no lights, no ventilation, no waterers and no posts for sheep pens. On Wednesday afternoon, the sheep arrived and were quickly sorted and safely housed in a finished barn thanks to a really Herculean effort by Jodi, the boys, Page, Christopher, Daniel, our friends at Better Air, Franek Electric, Sogn Valley Fencing and especially, Zach.
And tonight we just finished two days of shearing our entire flock with help from volunteers Aaron, Tom and Nicole.
To help keep the momentum going, I'm really excited to announce that we have reached nearly twenty percent of our goal of 50 new CSA PLUS members! Thank you, your support can make this happen.
All new CSA members who join in February (and our existing CSA members!) will be invited to join us for Lamb Day -- an afternoon with lambs.
