It's full throttle Spring at Four Legs Farm. Because we're on new properties in Germantown this year there's a ton of new stuff to figure out like where does the grain go? How much hose do I need? How do I get the pigs trained to the electric fence without them barreling right through it?
I'm figuring out the answers the hard way, but I certainly won't forget them now. The grain goes as close to the pigs as possible. I have the right amount of hose, but need to buy different fittings. It certainly helps to have the pigs contained inside a permanent fence when training them to an electric fence.
It is also a wonderful feeling to know that I do have few things figured out from last year. I am better able to explain what a meat share looks like now and have a better handle on what to expect as far as meat share sign-ups. It's been so wonderful to have repeat customers. Thanks for all of the support!
I'm working on pacing myself and feel lucky to be alive the last few days with the spectacular weather we've been having. The cows and sheep have been so excited about the grass and the pigs are thrilled to rooting around in the dirt.
