Small Hobby Farm in Rural Missouri


It has been way, way, way too long since I have posted anything on our site.

This has been one of the busiest years (in a good way) I have ever had .

Both of my daughters got married, along with all off the before and after festivities. One in Hilton Head South Carolina and the other in Barolo Italy.
The weddings and the trips were memory makers I will treasure forever. My sister and her husband were my awesome travel companions for these wonderful trips. A thanks to them for always being there for me.

We also had a wonderful trip to Jackson Hole, Yellowstone and Cody Wyoming. It was beautiful and we shared the trip with family (including my sister once again) and some friends from Australia. I crossed a few items off my bucket list this year. . . White water rafting, seeing a moose in the wild and going to Cinque Terre Italy. All we absolutely incredible.

It truly was one of the most beautiful summers ever. The weather just couldn’t be beat. Much of our time was spent outside. We had an awesome garden and flowers , I think our tomatoes were the best ever.

Clark the donkey is going to be leaving us this Saturday. It’s time for him to leave the nest.

We have culled some chickens and introduced new pullets we raised, so egg production should be picking up.

We have a few new girls for breeding stock too. . . Three ewes and three goats. Of coarse that means we have to say goodbye to a couple of the first girls we ever had. Hillary will be missed along with bubble butt. Don’t ask! Plus a new ram to help bill out. Bill is getting old, we hate to talk about the day when he has to leave the farm.

We are going to be selling animals to a couple of new restaurants. Hopefully, Niche, Blood and Sand, Scottish Arms, and I think Kevin at Sidney Street is going to take lamb again. It is always a sad time of year to see the babies starting to leave one by one. We can always look forward to new babies in February. Yes, we have put Bill, (the man!) with the girls. Lucky will be going in this weekend.

Oh yeah, and everyone knows what’s just around the corner for the turkey’s. Can you say star of our yummy Thanksgiving feast.

The bunnies are doing well. We have three litters just about ready to butcher. Carl at Scottish Arms is going to take those babies. We have bred 1 of the 3 girls again and are expecting babies soon.

I will post some pictures of highlights and try to get back on track with regular updates.

I’m bad!
