The Adventures and Misadventures of a 500 ac Certified Organic Farm.
Friday, November 12, 2010
As predicted by our dairy-expert friend, Rosie gave birth to a big heifer calf this morning. We figured it was close enough to Remembrance Day to call her Poppy (that will also help in the future when we can't remember how old she is).
So that's the news from Freetown this morning! Now comes the many adventures of learning how to milk a cow, what to do with the calf, etc. I feel a learning curve (and new forearm muscles) coming up!!!!
I hope your day is as beautiful as our weather is here! Blue skies, sun shine and the crispness that only November can offer.
