The promise of spring and new life is everywhere on the farm now and the newest addition are the lambs little bit earlier then expected but just as lovely
Hoping our bees and bumblebee are active soon helping us with pollination insuring that we get apricots, sweet almonds, peaches and nectarines.
You are kidding your self if you think farming is above nature, despite man’s achievements in the field of technical solutions we are still totally depending on natural systems for our food production. No insects no pollination no fruits and berries it’s very simple, it’s your obligation as a farmer to work with this system not against it. Spreading artificial nutrition that tax our rivers, lakes and ocean hard. Or spraying synthetic chemicals that kill not only the pests but also beneficial insects, poisoning birds and polluting ground water
Bee a bee friend if not for them but for your own sake
Second litter of piglets are now nestling on the straw, guarded by mum they have the best security on the farm. The size difference between adult pigs and their babies is extreme and they are very exposed in the beginning relying completely on their mom for food, heat and protection.
