Breezy Hill Farm Update Apr 7, 2020

Posted 4/7/2020 9:44pm by Art Ozias.

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE


  • It's easy to stay at home during the spring.  There is so much to do.  Gardens, pastures to renovate, cows calving, pruning trees, mowing the yard,  and all the other daily routine chores.
  • We have had four new calves.  The next week will be a bunch more.  I wish all could observe how the cow family functions.  Each day there is a different momma cow with nursery duty.  She stays with the babies while the other mothers graze.  There is no argument.  They just do it.
  • Martins are back and I'm still trying to stay ahead of the sparrows that try to move in the Martin houses.  I'm not sure how many times they can lay eggs.  When I clean the nests out usually there is four eggs.  Then in about two weeks, I do it again, and again four eggs.
  • We will be having a ground beef pickup this week.  Those not receiving an email have moved up on the list and the next date will be in mid May.  That was the earliest I could get.  There should be plenty for the next pickup, so if you want to add a little you can.  If you know someone trying to find grass finished beef, feel free to have them  email me.  Our price is the same as last year.  The price at the local grocery has increased about 10 percent.  It is now $6.19 per pound.  Meanwhile, prices at the local livestock auction have taken a bath recently.
  • We have marrow bones available.  They are $3/#.

This email was just received.  She was a very interesting young lady.  We had about a two hour visit and I was quite impressed with her knowledge of our food systems.
