What is happening on the Gill-Power Hobby Farm this month!
Spring is just around the corner. Love this time of year. We had a long rainy winter and it is good to see the sun again.
I can see the smile on my Black Welsh faces when the sun comes out.
We finally butchered our old layers. They stopped laying and the time had come. But I now have a freezer full of stewing hens. They make a very tasty soup and I even made a delicious Chicken Cacciatore in the slow cooker. Our young layers are up to 3 dozen a day now, so that keeps our customers happy.
We are looking forward to spring to start tiling and planting again. We have to replace a few fruit trees because of the terrible winter we had in 2016-17. We were hoping they would thrive through the summer but just too damaged from the snowy cold winter.
Stay tuned for my next message and don't forget to support your local farms.
