'Round The Farm

Angry Birds and Happy Cows

Weekly update at Longbottom Farm

This week on the farm…
1. Lisa is not prepared for Monday.
2. Construction on the Fort Knox of gardens is almost complete.
3. Like mother like son. They thoroughly enjoy their alfalfa cubes and Icelandic kelp for breakfast. But who wouldn’t?
4. Stray eggs always make me wonder what was going on with the chicken. Did she get distracted? Was there a long line at her favorite box? Did she sneeze?

Happy Valentines Day!  When you order from our online store, use coupon code <longbottom14> at checkout to get 10% off of your entire order (excludes bulk boxes).  This coupon is good until the end of this week (2/17/19).  Whether you’re spending this week with a loved one or just waiting until February 15th when all the good candy goes on sale, you can’t go wrong with 100% grassfed beef and farm fresh eggs.

When Your Water Pump Breaks, Bucket!

Around the Farm

This week on the farm…
1. This sweet face met the business end of a skunk at about 0400 this morning. At least that was the time when the smell woke me up. Eww.
2. Our winter watering system is the actual worst. On the bright side, my arms are going to be huuuge.
3. Our Easter eggers lay the prettiest shade of blue-green. The size still leaves a bit to be desired, but I think my pep talks are helping.
4. Farmers market season is just around the corner and booth planning is gearing up. I’m pretty excited for a girl who is horrible at selling stuff.

Also, we would like to thank you for your support, encouragement, and for following our weekly happenings (and mishaps).  If there is anything you’d like to see on the farm or questions, don’t hesitate to give us a shout.
