Farm Days of September

With our summer officially over now halfway through September.  Our days are still long and we still are working harder than ever.  On the family front we are now in full swing with new schedules including second grade, swim team, preschool and much more!  Lucky for us we have lots of grandmas and papas to chip in and help (Who doesn't love grandma days)  Actually wishing I still had a few of those here and there! We are so lucky to have such a great family and friends that chip in at a drop of a hat, or best friends who answer hundreds of packaging design texts for opinions no matter what hour of the night. Although we cherish every moment we have seems like Joe and I have been completely occupied with the farm, although we did get a chance to celebrate our ninth wedding anniversary.  For those of you who don't know we now live and work together.  It is a good thing we are a good team, seeing that most everyday all day is spent together. Oh yes, there are still marital spats in lowes aisles and yes I do try to quit certain days on him...all part of the married working farm life! 
On the farm.  Still milking, still bottling and yes baby lambs still arriving.  Our projects on the farm continue with new fencing, cleanup and working sheep days.  Every day we are not processing we are tending to the many many ewes and lambs we have on the farm.  Rotational grazing, worming, hoof trimmings, you name it we are doing it. I have to say Joe and I are pretty amazed how fulfilling it is to have an operation like we have. ( did I mention exhausting too)  To start the morning with our sheep to the finished product in the creamery.  It is so neat to be able to know exactly what we are producing and how it is produced down to what each of our ewes eats, when she was sheared, when she had her feet trimmed, when she lambed all the details that make our operation run.  Don't forget to check our retail location page on our website for new locations added.  Also make sure to stop by for a sample of our milk this next month dates and locations on our facebook page (Huge thank you to Jolene for all the store demos and sampling on top of grandma duty). Exciting news for last. YES more news....that means more work.  We are super excited that our Sheep Milk Ice Cream will officially be launching in October!  With our Signature line of {Vanilla Bean, Dark Chocolate Cacao Nib, Mint Chip, Hazelnut Crunch}  and a very special limited edition rotating flavor starting with our harvest flavor {Pumpkin Pecan}.  If you have never tried sheep milk or sheep milk ice cream you are missing out!  Huge thank you to Jenna Giannini for all the culinary help and making sure we are launching some amazing ice cream. (and for the hours you spent with Joe and I making sure or craft is perfected). So looking forward to what is ahead, all the work, ice cream testing, and many many more projects to come!  Stay Tuned.
