Ducks enjoying their feeding time!
Beef Sampler Packs!
We have sampler packs of beef available from the butcher on this calf that are not spoken for yet. You get 34# of cuts @$6.50 a pound for $221
This is a sample of various cuts, including a couple roasts, a couple pounds of minute steaks, plus some other special cuts as well as a few different types of grilling steaks, plus 10-12 pounds of ground meat that is very lean.
These packages are a variety of cuts, packed up in a fair way so they all have a similar value and will take up about 4 grocery store bags worth of freezer space.
I also have 1/4 of beef available. This is a huge amount and variety of cuts! If you have freezer space and ready to stock it up give me a text or call. Same price- $6.50 a pound hanging weight.
If you are new to us you can check out our website beef page for more details, our special methods using 100% non-gmo feed we grow and make ourselves right here in Tate county! Give us a try, it’s delicious. You won’t be disappointed
If you’re up for collecting some clover you can wash it, let it dry and either set in a dehydrator or hang it in a dark closet in bundles for tea making. So healthful and extra benefits for ladies. I’m workin on mine now
Come Stop By The Store!
I don’t know who’s more cute- my lil helper girls or my 4 legged babies or my fluffy butt bird babies…. I’m not going to choose! I’ll just love them all
Thought I’d share some projects my awesome girls are working on this week. Of course it’s never ending grooming and cuddles for all the fur babies! We are also trying to give the front of the store a touch up with fresh bright white paint on our road signs and building. Don’t forget the lovely spring flowers and herbs. Also getting the trellises ready for vining plants with mowing. Soon maters get transplanted out! Woop woop
Stop in and leave them some words of encouragement for their hard work and great efforts. I’ll be open Fri/Sat 10-3

Goats Got New Nametags!
It’s just new name tags but the goats are SURE it’s gotta be something good to eat lol
This is what I hear them saying ….
Is it something good to eat? Is it? Well? Let me see? No get back I wanna see? Can I sniff it? Is it mine? No it’s mine get off my feet! Back up you giant booty girl, them treats are all mine!
Time to say a few words I guess since I haven’t been too talkative lately. I spent the majority of March constantly under the weather. My immune system was really being challenged. This encouraged me to get back working on my tea detoxing. I set myself a regimen and have been surprisingly faithful to it. Lol I’m so proud of myself
Anyway, I’ve been experimenting with new cheese equipment and makin butter. Mmmmm look at this bowl I made- I’m almost through it in just one week. Sooooo good.
I thought you’d like a pic of my cute little kitty so fat and prego. Can’t wait to see her littles born.
Thanks to all my peeps who stopped by the store today to give me their input on the recent batch of soft cheese. We love y’all and don’t stay away so long next time
Buttery & Cheesy Goodness!
We’re making cheese and butter with our excess milk, y’all! I can’t wait to try it all out!
New Kid On The Block!
We have a new doeling born today! Her name is Bambi. She’s darling! Pictures to come really soon! Spring is here, folks!
Needing 1 Gallon Glass Jars!
Just thought I’d put out a request in our little community to help recycle 1 gallon glass jars.
If you have any 1 gallon glass pickle jars WITH lids that fit the jar, you’re gonna throw away I’d take them off your hands.
I need exactly 1 gallon so I can sell a gallon of milk to customers. They want to charge me $15 per jar and lid PLUS $8 each for shipping.
Surely we can come together and stop this needless waste. I do not want to pass these costs onto our local friends and families in our community. I Would appreciate any help y’all can send my way! Thanks so much Temi
I will be staying home today
We’ve all gotten sick and I’ve lost my voice. Might not be able to open tomorrow either. I don’t want to pass this onto anyone else. If you need something just text me since I can’t talk on the phone.
A Cold Snap
Good morning y’all!
Boy this cold snap was mean to my purdy flowers I have out front of the store. I hope they bounce back.
I’m feeling so tired today. Anyone want to loan me some extra energy? Come see me, I bet we can come up with a fair trade.
I’m closing at 1pm today. Honey says he needs a new tractor so we are headed out of town to go look at one he’s been drooling over. Don’t tell him I said that though, it doesn’t sound very manly. Lol

Dairy Cow Rehab
Today we begin helping our little momma cow, Sophia to regain her strength and vitality.
My dairy cow Sophia has been getting into poor condition so we transferred her to behind our house for more intensive care to rehabilitate her. She lost her voice, she can’t make any sound at all even though she tries her little heart out.
I can tell Sophia feels better emotionally, since we brought her here. I’m seeing her being much more interested in ppl and what’s going on cuz she knows this place, she knows us and seeing us more frequently equals greater level of care in her mind.
We will be taking her baby to a separate area for 8-12 hours per every 24 and then supplementing him with milk replacer, feed, healthy snacks, sweet feed and hay. It will be hard at first to have baby separated from mom, but as the days go by and Sophia starts regaining her strength, she will realize she needed a break from him and as long as we pitch in to maintain his health they will both accept it.
Momma got some wormer, free choice mineral and some booster shots to keep her strength up first thing.
This is also a good time to focus on getting baby more acclimated to us and learning how to walk on a leash like all the rest of my animals. Have you ever wanted your very own bull calf that goes for walks with you and likes to play with humans? He will be for sale as well as his half brother who is already super tame.
Bella’s calf realized he might have a new friend to play with when he saw the other calf show up yesterday and started kicking up his heels in pure joy!! Tomorrow us 3 girls are gonna start training Sophia’s boy to a leash and go visiting with Bella’s boy each day, while momma gets her some very needed ME TIME!!
