To everyone who came out to feed pumpkins to the cattle, they thank you! If you still have leftover pumpkins, apples, turnips, or any other fresh vegetables, bring them out to the farm during store hours (Wed. 1-5 pm, Thur-Sat 10-5 pm). Topper, The Pumpkin King, will be watching for you!

My older Scottish Highlander steers (I like to call them The Boys) are finally back at the farm after spending most of the summer at Ty Miller's pasture in Canterbury. The Boys stayed at Ty's longer than I planned because I was short of help.

If you don't know what to do with your chemical-free pumpkins, bring them to the farm and smash them on-site. Jack-o-lanterns (without candles) are also popular, carved or not. Smashing is welcome on Wed. from 1-5 pm and Thur.-Sat. 10-5 pm (Please wear a mask and social distance.)

By artificial insemination (A.I.).

I always wonder why some parents want to buy a young, untrained pony for their child. I was reminded of this lapse of judgment when I saw this funny sign at a riding stable: For Fast Riders - We have fast horses.   For Slow Riders - We have slow horses.    For Those Who Have Never Ridden - We have horses that have never been ridden.
