Stella, our Blue Butt sow, delivered her 3rd litter of piglets last Sunday night.
March 5, 2012 11:45 A.M. – 3:15 P.M.
Dream, our Yorkshire sow, delivered her 2nd litter of piglets about 12 hours after Stella finished.
Both of these litters were artificially bred to be shown at fairs and sold to 4H. Last year, one of Stella’s sons was the Reserve Grand Champion at the fair in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Meg, our Dorset ewe, delivered twin lambs early Wednesday morning. One is a ram (male) and the other is a ewe (female). These are the first lambs fathered by our new Dorset ram we purchased last fall.
These newborns can be viewed in the main barn. We are waiting on more lambs, piglets and calves to be born in March!
Thank you for your continued support,
