Curley! Look at him. He spends all day lying around and chewing his cud. He has a very efficient method by just lying right next to bale, grabbing a bit to eat and sleeping on top of his hay... FARM FACT: Don't be fooled -- this big guy (bulls and cows) can run up to 15 mph, if there is something to run at or away from! Happy Spring from Green Acres Louisa VA.
We call her Pepper. She was born on Valentine's Day, one of the coldest days of the year. Don't ask me why she wanted to come out on this day, except that she is quite a sweet heart. Farm Fact: Colostrum or First Milk is extremely important for calves on their first day. It has extra protein and antibodies to protect the calf. When its cold, the newborn calf has enough fur and drinks milk to keep warm.
Both registered American Berkshire's, Ms Black and Napolian Dynomite are our breeding stock.
Farm Fact: Ms. Black will have two litters a year. The gestation period is easy to remember 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days...
Special thanks to Elysian Ridge Farms for providing us these two sweet pigs.
Cavalier Produce is our newest distributor, currently selling our free range eggs. Selling local produce and eggs to regional restaurants, we look forward to working with them!
People have been asking... What do your animals do in the the snow? I say that depends.... Our cattle and horses eat, eat and eat! And the pigs and chickens hunker down and hide. Well the pigs do until its feeding time.
The horses and cattle eat hay which makes internal heat, this keeps them warm from the inside with their well insulated double coats. The chickens have an extra layer of down and huddle together in their house. We also keep a heat lamp in their house, which keeps them laying. Lastly, the pigs generally stay in their hooch. Our Berkshires pigs are little furry for p, but even so I know they have a pretty thick layer off fat. They also huddle together for heat, but certainly will come running when its feeding time.
