March 2021 Keeping you in touch with what is happening on the farm
Luna gives birth to a girl!
Spring is here with lots of babies arriving on the farm, starting with yesterday's (March 8th) arrival of Luna's first calf; a little girl. We look forward to how Luna will do as a first-time mom.
Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates on Luna and her calf as well as our baby chicks and more spring babies. We're going to need some help picking this little calf's name, follow us to see how you can help!
