Sharing our small farm stories and skills along our farming, gardening and homesteading journey. Visit the farm for an informative and sometimes irreverent tour through our garden, livestock pastures, chicken coop and greenhouse as we live - pasture to plate. Farming topics free range around pastured heritage pigs, broiler chickens and pastured eggs, heritage breed turkeys, an heirloom vegetable CSA and garden, high tunnel / hoop house / green houses, organic and traditional gardening, farm infrastructure, tractors, sustainable energy, permaculture, food preservation and even fence mending.

Farming stories and skills from our small farm, gardening and homesteading journey -

pasture to plate.

This weeks updates include more cold weather and some updates about the animals around the farm. The pigs and chickens are doing well but all of us are done with this cold weather. We also talk a bit about the business of farming and what we still need to do on that said with regards to customer emails and notifications.

In the Coopcast Community we have a breif tutorial on searching old coopcast episodes so you can find things you might have missed or are interested in.

  • Brent had a question about worming pigs and we answer it and point to Coopcast 091
  • There was a listener who asked about deer fencing and food plots to keep the deer out of his garden.
  • Rebecca had a question about turkey feed and turkey poults
  • Gail blew in with a question about finding half a pig to purchase and what goes into that decision
