Dear friends of the farm,
March finds us in the midst of lambing season - the busiest season of the year.  March has brought more winter weather than usual, but we have been grateful for the ability to provide quality care for the sheep.  Shepherd's Cross sheep lamb mostly twins, in the pasture.  We have had to use the barn quite a bit this month to provide added warmth for those new young lives.  Come on out and experience the joy we have the opportunity to relish throughout this season.  Hope to see you soon!  The joy of the Lord is our strength.
The mountains skipped like rams, and the
little hills like lambs.                            Psalm 114:4
