A busy few months and more to come!

It has been a very busy few months since my last blog about the farm.

We made it through our first field trip season! It was a success and we hope to build it even more this fall. We are very fortunate to be located only 4 miles from Lever Farms. They are a pick-your-own strawberry patch in the Spring and pumpkins in the Fall. We work will together helping schools plan science related field trips incorporating plant and animal science.

This summer we offered a few summer camps. We hope to expand this part of the farm next summer. It was tons of fun having 4-Hers and more here at the farm learning about the alpacas, taking great pics, and making yarn crafts.

This summer was also a rough one. Not sure if it was more rough on the farmer or the animals. We have had almost a record number of over 100 degree days. The humidity has been out of control too. This means three to four trips to the barn daily checking on the animals, refilling water buckets, giving cool showers to the herd, and of course, tons of poop/pee clean up! The cooler weather seems to be on the horizon! As much as I love the pool and the beach, the turning of the fall leaves will be welcomed.

Hope to be better at my updates the rest of the year!
