Lambs and Kids Galore

We are finished with lambing and are happy to report 32 new lambs from 16 mothers. These are St. Croix sheep which are proving to be very reliable “birthers”. We also now have 6 new kids from 3 mom goats and 5 more due in May. We are up to milking 6 goats so the volume of milk is increasing considerably. Steve just started to use his new Hoegger milker since doing all this milking by hand was getting to be a bit much.

We’d like to report beautiful weather in Vermont…what a nice change!!
