Spring is here and we have five little lambs running around the farm. The whole process went fairly smooth right up to the end where it got a little tricky. The final lamb was breech and required help. Cloud had her front legs up and behind her head and wouldn't pass. Teresa quickly repositioned the lamb and in one second all was well again. The lambs are doing great and so much fun to watch run around. Babydoll Page...
Ever wonder how much of a difference getting your meat and eggs from animals that are raised on healthy pasture land? As you suspected healthy land equals healthy live stock and a dirt lot is not a nutrient rich place to raise food. A hen's egg that as grass under her feet has 13% less saturated fats and 286% more Omega-3 thats a huge difference.

Remember the sheep when they first came to The Grassy Knoll Farm? It's been quite a while now, and although they are part of the family now, we have yet to name out four little friends!
Over the next few blogs, we will name the little sheepies and share more of their stories of their new life at The Grassy Knoll Farm!
Hi! Well we've arrived, we are home! I've heard our farmers call this place The Grassy Knoll Farm, but I'm not sure where it is yet. We spent a long time in the back of Farmer J's jeep getting to our new home, and now we are trying to settle in. The farmer that is called Teresa wears this weird back pack thing filled with a little Farmer who wears bright pretty clothes and that is sometimes quite loud.

Newly arrived on the farm today is one 30lb piglet. She was a little dirty and stinky so she got a bath straight away.
