Quick Farm Update

This year has been a lot better than the years past. We have had a decent size lamb crop in both Market and Babydolls. Our girls will be able to show both breeds this year and will also be competing against our stock.

We have done an awesome job with the rabbits and come a long way. We went from just having English lops to specializing in Sable and Blues. Love seeing those long eared babies in the nest boxes. We plan to start back showing English lops in full force by next year. Our Tans are doing great on the show tables including a Best In Show and numerous Best of Breeds! Gracie’s Dutch that she has bred and raised are also winning Best of Breeds on the table. We have even been able to help out several youth get started in showing.

We have had a few goslings, chicks, and quail hatched out and have decided that we need to have a thin down on several livestock.

  1. Belgian Draft Mare – $3500
  2. Palomino Quarter Horse Gelding – $2500
  3. Sebastopol Geese Flock – $600 – consider trades
  4. Hampshire Pig Herd – 3 – $1000 or trade for sheep/cows
  5. Tan rabbits – $65
  6. Dutch rabbits – $15 and up
  7. Dwarf Hotot dos – $60 each or $100 for both
  8. Chicks – $3 and up
  9. NABSSAR Registered Babydoll Ram – $500
  10. Guinea Pigs – $20 and up
  11. Adult Muscovy Ducks $25
  12. Rooster – $15

2017 a NEW YEAR

Hard to believe it is already the second month in the new year!!!

We are so excited about 2017 as we have a lot going on and planned for. We will start lambing around March and can’t wait for those little lambs to hit the ground running.

Our girls are getting geared up for the new show season and just waiting on lambs to get here so they can officially start planning shows.

We have also added a new partner to our Rabbitry so that we can offer a bigger variety of rabbits. We specialize in rare breed show bunnies. Currently we have Holland Lops, Thriantas, Tans, Czech Frosty, Dwarf Hotots and English Lops.
