Family Friendly Farm

Farm hodgepodge update


The aquaponic garden had some setbacks but we are rolling again. Our family has been eating salads all week. Very good stuff. We have seven varieties of lettuce to compare and we like them all.

Not too late to order turkey for pick up in STL. More details here.

There is LOTS of milk now so you know what that means . . . CREAM! I’ll put in STL shopping cart on Saturday or Sunday for those ordering next week delivery. It is in the store already.

We will have lots of ground beef available over the winter. We will give a discount price when you buy 50 pounds at a time. This is from our all grassfed Jersey herd so it’s quite lean.

We will be having Great Pyrenees Puppies! Expected arrival will be mid-December just in time to play with at Christmas. Ready for permanent homes by Valentines Day. Price $200 paid before December 20th. After that it will be $225. Puppy aptitude testing allows us to match the puppy with its new home environment (individual, family or farm).

The cow that was down two weeks ago had injured her hip. She would never walk again. We had to put her down. Darrell cried. We liked her. She was also expecting a near term calf so Matt performed his first cesarean. The calf survived! It was just incredible. We were all so tense; it seemed to take so long. Then, he survived. So Darrell aptly named the calf, Incredible.
Finally, we were able to pick out living room furniture that suited us. It is great to be moving back into our home after five years of camping upstairs. Next is wall hangings and curtains. Loving it! Feeling grateful for all the efforts of the people that helped get the new store ready last winter/spring.

Rachel has laryngitis. Please don’t call she can’t answer the phone. Text 573-382-3844 or email Prayers welcome.

Granddaughter Marlea (2 years old) is healing up nicely from her burns. She had pulled hot noodle soup down off the counter and had second degree burns on nearly ten percent of her body. It was very traumatic but she is healing both physically and emotionally. Thanks for the prayers. Keep them coming.

That’s all for this week. We are so glad to be of service to you.

~Matthew & Rachel
