We currently have a bull and three cows. Each of the cows currently has a calf. This year’s calves include two heifers and one bull. The sale of the calves each year helps to pay for feed for all the animals we keep. We do sometimes keep some of our calves to grow our little herd.
We have raised two pigs each of the last two years. We raise them for meat. The children do enjoy feeding them apple cores while they’re here! We go through a LOT of apples during the time of the year when we have pigs!
“Chickens, chickens, and more chickens! We raise chickens for both eggs and meat. Our children particularly enjoy hatching time, which we do in the fall, after the hottest part of the year. Who doesn’t enjoy watching cute, fluffy chicks?
