  Thank You
Thanks for the advice on how you handle extreme cold. Our barn is insulated and on gravel. We have stalls/pens for the goats. I like the idea of just adding the clean bedding. Even though our barn can be -20 inside, it feels like a heat wave when walking in from the negative 40's. We have heat lamps set up as well and the barn is draft free. One thing we have to deal with for all hosuing of the animals is condensation build up. Ventalation is key.

I have to say your kids are so cute...I do have a question you might beable to answer for me...Do you know if pigs and goats get along? We have one little pigglet and I don't like her out there all alone...and we can't seem to find any more piglets..so we were thinking about putting a couple of kids in with her..she is only about 9 weeks old...very friendly and would more then likly like some company...if you know that would be great...

I love your kids! We just purchased 1 Nubian and 1 Saanen doe, along with a 1/2 Saanen 1/4 Togg-1/4 Nubian buck. We can't wait for our first kids to arrive late this year early next year.

We live in Alaska where our temps have hit well under 40 below. How do you guys deal with extreme cold temps? Just curious to swap ideas around with others in colder climates.

  Cute kids! It is great to watch the animals any time of the year. Have you ever seen chickens in 2 feet of snow? It is funny.

  New beginnings for the Whitehill Farm
5 years ago my husband and I inherited his family's farm. Established in 1881 the farm was primarily for dairy cows. In the late 90's the cow were sold and the barn empty. Upon returning to Vermont we decided to add a few animals to keep the barn in use and have been working to perserve the structure.

Most of the animals on our farm are recue animals. We seem to accumulate most of our animals in the late fall.
