There’s a lot going on at the farm right now be sure to watch for the up coming posts!
The sheep have been sheered and it’s time to turn the fleece to a sweater. (Ok not our sheep, that will come later. But I do have a few fleece to tend to)
The pigs have been butchered. I should talk about the butchering, bacon making, ham curing, chop cutting pig processing, but then what would I talk about next fall. Fat is being rendered and soap being made this time.
We are also going to talk about hide tanning too! But for now I have some steer hide ready to be tooled.
Cheese is in the works to start aging.
There’s some lace being put into a “built in” in the dining room. (I know it doesn’t sound to interesting but it’s actually kinda neat.)
The barn needs some help and repair.
The summer kitchen plans are getting close and will hopefully be in use by next year.
There’s more to come in the kitchen, the craft room, the garden and the barn yard. Some things we are starting in the middle of the process, but don’t worry we will circle back to the beginning too!
