Acorns are falling!

Honey Milk Farms Saanen and Sable goats
The acorns have begun to fall and the goats are loving it!  They literally race to the back of the property where it is mostly wooded and gobble the acorns as they fall.

Mother Earth News Fair - Topeka, Kansas - October 13th and 14th

Today my passes/wristbands for the Mother Earth News Fair in Topeka, Kansas on October 13th and 14th arrived!  Beyond excited!  Sixteen days and a four hours drive away!  There are many amazing speakers on the Mother Earth News roster and two that I am especially excited about - Temple Grandin and Leo Sharaskin!  Little background - years ago, before owning cattle, we heard about Temple Grandin and her amazing low stress ways to handle cattle.  We bought her book, "Humane Livestock Handling," and watched the show based on her life.  Temple Grandin's methods are revolutionary and make working with cattle so much easier because we work "with" the cows not "against" them.  Highly recommend both the book and the movie - I will be giving a more in-depth review on the book and posting in the 'Book Review' page down the road.  Equally excited about Leo Sharaskin, editor of "Keeping Bees with a Smile."  Which is one of my top beekeeping books and has changed how we at Honey Milk Farms will be raising our bees.  Also a book I highly recommend and will be reviewing in depth at a later date.

Feeling like Fall!

This morning I sat on the back porch, drinking coffee and wearing a jacket! Temperatures in the low 60s and the overcast sky are just screaming FALL is right around the corner! Now, I can't remember when the last time or if there ever was a time I was wearing a jacket in the middle of September. While sitting there I noticed something dark moving in the south pasture amidst the brush. My first thought was "uh oh" coyotes are moving, which would have unusual, but the cooler temperature could be a factor. Within a few minutes, there were multiple dark moving creatures. Then, out in the open walks a beautiful giant Tom turkey and behind him several hens and a couple smaller Toms or perhaps Jakes (Jake another name for a male under a year old). They were quite a ways away, but I was able to get close enough for a photo before they sauntered off into the woods.
