This episode brings us back from a few weeks off and updates about the events we had around here on the farm that kept us from coopcasting last week.

We talk a little bit about farming and health care in proximity to the farm (given the recent events).  We also discuss our sick pig and the course of treatment we underwent to get her back to being a healthy girl again!

In the Farmers Choice segment we share a few simple gift ideas for the holidays that might make your shopping easier!
