Winter is here on the farm!
Here at R Family Farm, we have to work really hard to keep our animals comfortable during the winter! Animal waterers freeze and have to be opened up first thing in the morning. Hoses used have to be drained each time they are used. In the winter, water for the animals is so important.
For the chickens, eggs have to be picked up sometimes 4 times a day to keep them form freezing. In our store, we have to check constantly to make sure our "cooler" is kept at 41 degrees. It is so important not to freeze the eggs!
Pigs love the snow and are happy to be outside. Chickens don't like any wind but will go out to forage if there isn't too much snow. Nothing bothers the ducks as long as they can get in away from the wind and snow.
Stock your freezer with Berkshire Pork!
R Family Farm now has 1/4 ($300) approx 35lbs of meat, 1/2 ($450) approx 70lbs, and Whole ($800) Berkshire Hogs available to stock your freezers. Price includes all processing and smoking costs and transportation to the processor.
Mmm... think of all of those pork chops, sausage, and shoulder roasts! These are the best!

Our Friend Michelle came out to the farm and enjoyed seeing the baby goat that was born the day before!
