Greetings from Ole Lake Farm! I had hoped to get a blog post done long before this but seems like there is always something more pressing - usually soap related! Here are a few tidbits of what's happening around the place.
The picture above is the view from the hayshed taken just a few days ago. There is still plenty of green out there.
The farmers market season in Aitkin has been just great this year but will be wrapping up in a couple of weeks. We do have some fall and holiday markets on our calendar so preparations for those are on-going and include a couple of seasonal items like these snowflake soaps.
Rollie has been keeping his carpentry skills sharp by putting new roofing on the coop.
You may recall that we had a lot of chicks hatched by our hens this year. The oldest ones are getting quite large - check out this handsome fellow!
He and his brothers will be heading to the butcher before long. We are waiting for some of the younger ones to grow some more.
The pigs are also getting sizable. I still marvel over these curly coats.
Just to work in a goat picture, here are the does. They might look like giraffes peeking over this 5 foot wall but they are actually standing on one of the spool tables, looking for their next meal as always!
We celebrated out 36th anniversary with a short trip up to the north shore. Here is my favorite picture from Gooseberry Falls - I just love those cedar trees!
I will close with this picture of Roye, the most senior animal here at Ole Lake Farm. She's getting up there in years but is still looking good. Thank you for stopping by and reading our blog post. I will try not to let it go so long until the next one! Until then, be well friends!
