Good morning All, 

Our baby lamb total now stands at 8 healthy happy bouncy babies! They are so very very cute! We have so many more to come, and I enjoy every single one of them. So far no needy bottle babies and while I do enjoy one or two it is also a very very good thing to have “Mom” take care of these little bundles of joy!

Lovely longer days are happening now, noticeable ( by an hour) increase in sunlight, the air feels different and the light feels different too….get out and grab some sunshine , it is joyous and energizing!

Pat has made some awesome Mashed potato Soup for our food list this week. Made with local potatoes ,garlic, onion,butter and vegetable stock. It is a smooth soup and truly satisfying.

We still have a good supply of winter vegetables, , potatoes are beginning to recognize the early spring signs and  the eyes are starting to become more noticeable…… 

Delivery will be Friday this week, and I look  forward to hearing from you!

Grateful thanks for your solid support of local foods, farms and excellent small producers !

Good VERY chilly morning All!

Walking into the high tunnel yesterday to do my early morning feeding, I was just in time to witness the birth of our latest new baby girl!

Amazing to me that these little ones stand within 5 minutes of their entrance onto earth and will begin feeding not long afterwards….

This brings our total to three as of today and there will be many, many more to come. Being born in the colder winter months guarantees healthy  bouncy babies that (usually) need no extra care…. Their moms are vigilant, very protective and provide them with so much more than this well meaning (me)but often inept caregiver. Hopefully there will only be one or two bottle babies this season….. so the beginning is strong for Valley View Farm’s “Gang of Babes”, as the weeks wear on they will become little thugs that will run rampant over their moms, tipping over water and feed bowls and making me laugh each and ever time I walk into their pens with their antics..

It is CSA sign up time at the farm as I begin to plan the late winter /early planting planting schedules, and we have included the sign up form in this mailing.

Please feel free to email me with questions about our CSA….

The Red Shed farm store is only open one day a week this season, 

Saturday 12-5…

Pat has been making and offering for sample and sale soups and stews made with locally sourced and grown ingredients…. Stop over to try and buy!

And as always, my grateful thanks for your support of local foods ,local farms, and excellent small Maine businesses!

Good morning All  !

A tiny bit warmer this morning than the temps from the past weekend, heading from the high tunnel checking on the sheep last Saturday , I glanced up at the moon and saw a contrail with this snow dog surrounding the moon.. I thought that I would share my late night photo opportunity with you all. A late night miracle ,I watched until I got so chilly that I had to head in

Our baby lambs are beginning to arrive, we have 2 healthy bouncy boys in the lambing pens with their moms and the promise (or threat) of many, many more to come. For me , this is a living gift, and affirmation of spring and the turning of our seasons… daylength is beginning to be noticeable, and next week I begin the winter pruning of the fruit trees, blueberries and raspberries!

So, our produce continues to be wonderful, I can see the beginnings of potatoes that are thinking about sprouting, we will have to start the sorting process in earnest now. Please let me know how we can fill your pantry and soup pots!]I remain appreciative of your continued support of local foods, farms and our excellent Maine artisans!   We are in the early  stages of farmers market planning 

And it looks to be another great one….

Grateful for all of you,

Stay warm!
