This weeks farm updates are short and sweet so we can get to a bunch of our listeners questions. We did more pig castrations - not on ours, but super small mini-pigs. It's a great example of how going slow on a farm make a lot of sense. We also got the turkeys out on pasture - finally - with a redesigned mobile turkey shelter that ROCKS!
In our CoopCast Community section we talk a bunch of listener questions like:
Are we planning for fall planting?
Erin wanted to know about her NC property as a blank slate for a new farm. How would we set things up to start in terms of the barn, the green house, and the animals.
Adam asked about our feed mixture for Cornish x and turkeys on pasture
Brent (who brought us the phrase "worm worshipping hippies") Asked about chicken processing and how soon after processing do customers pick up?
In our Ruminations we share our thoughts on food safety article regarding farm market chickens and their bacteria. http://www.foodsafetynews.com/
