Farm,  Venise's Blog


It’s haying season – one of my favorite times of the year! This year we paid a custom bailer to come and cut, rake and bail our hay. The deal is that we get to keep 30% and he gets to take 70%. Considering we only have 6 small goats to feed and are projected to get over 500 bales 30% is more than enough for us.

At this point we have harvested half of our 6 acres and have over 300 bales of hay. Ross’s dad, stepmom and sister came over to help us buck the bales along with my Aunt Debbie and Grandma Nancy. Everyone did a great job helping and we were all dog tired at the end of the day! I am so incredibly thankful they came and helped because I don’t think we could have done it ourselves. Ross has spent the last few night stacking the bales in the barn and now we have a pretty cool place to sit and watch the goats.

Having a barn full of my very own hay is a dream come true. I have always loved hanging out in the hay and now I can do it whenever I please! Just one more thing I love about our new place!

The "garden" behind the garden to glass cocktails, Venise is the resident farmer of the Simple Goodness Farm, older sister and goat lover.

    So sorry about your chickens but bravo to you for all you did to save your hen. I lost 2 of my speckled hen’s last month and also hadn’t named them yet. I have 3 left.
