Alpaca, Piglets and MORE!
This month, two alpacas found a new home here at the farm. It was a rough transition to getting them here at the farm, with lots of ups and down. Transporting animals is always a rough thing but when people can't find a common ground, it always creates chaos. We all managed to slug our way through and on January 13th, they arrived!
They are already a big hit with visitors, whether it's for their fuzzy heads or their humming purrs or maybe it might even be the tickles of their little camel like noses as they nibble grain from your hand I'm not sure.
For February, there are a couple of appointments upcoming for available beef. There are a total of 3 heading off to freezer camp, with some still available. Anyone purchasing a half or greater gets their choice of cuts to select after a deposit is received. The first available pick up date is February 18th. This is the last of the available beef until finishing of the next batch around September. Grilling season is coming soon here locally and we don't want you to miss out.
Hogs and Pork:
There is also secured a date for the end of April for pork as well. The reviews have been sent in from the last batch and everyone is extremely pleased with their bacon, hams, sausage and even commented about the juiciness of the pork chops. Deposits will need to be secured as quickly as possible, since orders are already coming in! These animals are 100% raised from farrow to fork, right here on Barrows Farm.
To those interested in raising their own pork, the new piglets born today will be offered as feeder hogs at weaning. They will be 8-10 weeks old and will be available the end of March, first part of April. If anyone is interested, they can also be secured for those pig roasts this coming summer.
I'll have a confirmation of availability next posting.
There will be 19 calves to be born this coming April and May! Hard to believe that just a few short years ago there were just 3 or 4.

I post all kinds of photographs and videos, especially during calving season because it's one of my favorite times of year. You can also see reviews from other customers and their testimonials too.
