  Thank you for visiting our page! The Russian Orloffs have turned out to be the most friendly. When I go to the coop to fill the feeder they stand around me, to see what I am doing. I find chickens very curious, but they seem to be more interactive then the other two types we have. The Black Javas got both poopy bottoms and feet when they were young, I did not have this problem with the Russians. We are looking forward to having them free range on the property, but we have to wait until we can get the property cross fenced for their safety. Here is a good link to learn more about the Russians. http://www.albc-usa.org/cpl/russian_orloff.html

  mission trip
That is very cool - my grandparents were from Minnesota. What did you do on your mission trip? I am a retired veterinarian and I did a trip to the Rosebud Sioux with the SPCA several years ago. It was an amazing experience. Back to tomatoes, have you tried green zebras? We've had good luck with them in our short summers and when it gets on towards freezing we pull the whole plant and hang it in the garage and they keep really well and continue to ripen.

It's good to meet another cold country farmer. Any luck with warm weather crops where you are? Most years we can get tomatoes of some sort but I long for melons and have tried starting them in the house, growing them in hoophouses, etc. Where there's a will there's a way... Where did your mission go? We went to Kenya last December.

Envy (in a good way) your orchard. We are starting to plant some fruit trees (peaches, apples, figs) but as you know it takes a while for them to start producing.

  Thank you for the welcome. In reading your profile so many of your experiences are the same as ours. We moved to a heritage farm that is 150 years old. It needs work and the property needs to be re-claimed. We have an orchard of pear, apple, cherry, peach mulberry and black walnut trees. They all need trimming this winter. We have been fencing like crazy this past two years. We also support the Lutheran Indian Missions in Arizona. We have chicken coups and I am going to get chickens in the spring along with ducks and guineas. Our son has goats and helps us with the property. Mary

I'm still nervous a bit because our chickens still have not laid eggs at all, yet. We bought them when they were a bought 2-3 weeks old. Someone told me they could wait until a year to start laying, I read somewhere 18-22 weeks of age. They are a mix of a Golden Comet and a Rhode Island Red. So, I know they are both laying chickens. They are so sweet, you can handle them, and my son can hand feed them worms. It's too cute!

  sage advice re getting Angora Goats
Angora goats can be really difficult, they seem to succumb to parasites and other stressors more easily than most dairy goats. If you raised dairy goats in FL then you probably know about the resistance that parasites are developing. If I got angora goats again, I'd want to put them on ground that had not had any goats or preferably any stock on it for a couple of years, and pen them for a few months feeding them herbal dewormers as well as running fecals and treating any signs of parasite eggs. I'd probably want to get them in from a northern clime, lol. (Sorry, no slam against my southern farmbuds intended but ....I'm just sayin'.) At least be sure to see farm records of fecals and deworming treatments. Not everyone keeps them. This could be difficult. Don't try to keep them on small acreage, you need to be able to rotate pastures. You also want to have a pair of lgd to protect them from predation from land, see, and sky.

That's all I can do for now off the top of my head. Got company, so have to get out of here! <grins>

  Thank you! I love my goats & there is nothing better than fresh milk. The kids are the cutest- I never thought I'd like them as much as I like puppies & foals, but they are a combo of the two- they can move around in a couple hours but are small enough to cuddle and love on.

Thanks for the advise on breeding vs owning a bull. I will look into that. What kind of chicken do you raise? We have three in our yard, a leghorn (white eggs), an araucana ( beautifull pastel green eggs), and a little bantam that lays tiny brown eggs. Use your chicken dropping in your berries... Stay busy

  Apple trees are trimmed. Peas/Beets/Pumpkins/Cucumbers are planted. Yard sale is ongoing. We are slowly getting the barn cleaned up and organized....maybe before the end of Summer we can start putting up some stalls. Rain, rain, rain....go go go away.

  Thank You for the gracious welcome.
Our tractor is a kubota. I couldn't do anything without it !! We have very uneven ground. Last year I started on a major project. We have moved more dirt than I thought possible.
Now the real farming really begins. Have most of the garden planted. Will be getting chickens in the next few days.Busy times I love it!!!
