I don't think I'll have too much trouble when I need to get Bluebell and Tequila cleaned up for the show season. They will stand for a preening session and love every minute of it!! Bimbo on the other hand will need some persuasion to leave the hay bar! #leicesterlongwool #leicesterlongwoolsheep #rarebreedsheep #rarebreeds #rbst #sheep #ewes #showsheep #smallholder #shepherdess
I’m getting ready to cast on Simone’s @owlcatdesigns newest mitt pattern #tripletmittens s! Her pattern provides you with three different design options: mittens, fingerless mitts, and convertible mittens. There’s something for everyone! 🐑❤️🐑 I’m choosing our #lincolnlillies yarn, which is 100% Lincoln Longwool wool from our three ewes Lulu, Lola, and Liesel. Living on top of a mountain, the wind comes roaring down its side. These mittens will be sure to keep my hands warm while doing chores, and will hold up well, all the while keeping that lovely long wool luster and stitch definition! 🐑❤️🐑 Simone’s pattern requires only one skein of any of our worsted weight yarns! Instant gratification for sure!!! . . #Romney #Lincolnlongwool #CVM #rarebreeds #Romlinc #cvmxromney #familysheepfarm #sheepinNH #monadnockregion #cheshirecounty #naturalcolored #purebreedwool #fromsheeptostitch #farmyarn #littlebabesyarn #woolmakestheworldgoround #wearwool #woolforwarmth #woolworks #knowyourwool #supportsmallfarms #owlcatdesigns #woolmittens

Summer nights call for easy meals. Homemade chorizo using @muddypigspasturedpork mince, paprika, cumin, garlic and onion. Served on a mini tortilla, these are a fusion of flavours which are not only easy to prepare, but also don’t cost the earth. We will have some mince, along with all your other favourite cuts at this Friday’s @tumutfarmersmarket. It’s going to be another hot one, so if you don’t feel like braving the heat, make sure you either DM us, email us at muddypigsfreerange@gmail.com or call Ali on 0423 637 570. Delivery around Young, Cootamundra, Harden, Tumut or Gundagai preferred. But delivery further afield may be arranged. #muddypigspasturedpork #thewaynatureintended #iknowthefarmer #wallendbeen #cgrcnsw #largeblackpigs #australianpork #happyasapiginmud #pasturedpork #shoplocaleatlocal #chooselocal #foodprovenance #agroecology #locavore #alwaystrustyourbutcher #keepitlocal #connectwithfood #knowyourfarmerknowyourfood #rarebreeds #pastureraised #ethicalfarming #smallscalefarming

9 Swedish Flower Hen chicks hatched from Pen # 5 this past weekend. The variety of color from this breeds can be addicting. Which one is your favorite? They change as they grow. Black, blue, and splash make up the 3 base colors, but there are many variations that make this breed a colorful bouquet. Click on the link in the bio to view the parent stock of these chicks. Coming Soon!!! A PDF to provide examples of the different colors! #swedishflowerhen #dontclipmywings #hatchingeggs #swedishflowerhenhatchingeggs #rarechickens #rarebreeds #cgheartbeatsfarm #babychickens #homestead #homesteadchickens
Pigs and chickens - our #1 combo, and I'm not just talking about our bacon and eggs! 🥓 🥚 We're always looking for ways to increase the quality of our animals' health. Sometimes that means combining systems for the benefit of the livestock -- like with our chickens and pigs. They both benefit each other and this arrangement saves us a lot of time, money, and the headache of trying to keep them separate, too. 🥚 The pigs get cleaner pastures, less pests, and the occasional eggs if they're laid on the ground. In return the chickens get whatever extra food the pig don't eat, and most importantly protection from predators. We don't have wild/feral pigs out here, so the local carnivores get pretty freaked out when they come across our pigs. Our predator problems go away as soon as we put some pigs around the chicken coops. 🥚 This arrangement also benefits them in the future. The pigs and chickens working together means more black gold (aka, poop) to fertilize the ground, and the chickens speed up that process by spreading it. The chickens eat the bugs and fly larvae, efficiently helping to break pest cycles which benefits the pigs out tremendously. After the pigs are done mowing the grass down they start to till up the ground (if we leave them there long enough to) to get at roots and grubs. Once we're satisfied with the state of the paddock, we move them to the next one and they repeat the process. Then after the area has fully recovered and grown back it'll be even better and greener than before. . #baconandeggs
It was so cold this morning that Charlie had little ice balls at the base of his nose (frozen mocos, boogers in Spanish)! Thankfully the ☀️ is out and the temperature is rising, but it’s also rising too much over the next couple of days! We’re supposed to get to the mid-40s on Thursday! 🥵Eeeks! . . #Romney #Lincolnlongwool #CVM #rarebreeds #Romlinc #cvmxromney #familysheepfarm #sheepinNH #monadnockregion #cheshirecounty #woolmakestheworldgoround #wearwool #woolforwarmth #woolworks #knowyourwool #supportsmallfarms #sheepfriendsarethebestfriends #globalwarming #yearlingram #Charlie
Meet Evie, probably the rarest pawtrait I’ve ever been commissioned to illustrate. A Bruno Jura Hound developed in the Middle Ages for hunting in the Jura mountains. I believe they are also loyal pets. #Jurahound #dogsforlife #raredogbreeds #hounds #rarebreeds #dogowners #dogillustrations #mansbestfriend #dogdrawings #spaniels

Next Sunday, we will be at the @waylandfarmersmarket Farm Fiber day! I think it will be a perfect winter day to celebrate wool and fiber.

Just a little bit of cow moving for a Monday! We’ve taken the three Shetland cows off Kinson Common for now until there’s a bit more for them to eat again.

Quadruple Shetland trouble waiting for their breakfast this morning! And don’t they look cute? (Swipe left for more of the same!) . . . . .

This is the face you get when you tell a #silverlacedwyandotte you’re not breeding any #silverlacedwyandottes this year and she’s going in with a #marans cock to take a little heat off your chosen #maranshens . Bit of a shame as she looks glorious but I think were clear #showpony #wyandottes aren’t the breed for us. #backyardchickens #chooks #chookstagram #chickens #urbanfarm #backyardfarming #utbanfarming #poultry #rarebreeds #heritagebreeds #permaculture #homesteading #smallholding

Meet Lola...Lola is a Leonberger, a giant breed that can weigh between 110-170lbs. Seeing as how my Linus is about 5lbs, this blows my mind. Even our golden, Clover, was only 90lbs at his heaviest, and I thought he was a giant! Leos are so beautiful and have such a gentle nature that you can’t help but fall in love with them. #Leonbergerlover #Leonberger #leonbergersofinstagram #leonbergers #leonbergergram #rarebreeds #giantbreed #dogart #dogartist #dogportrait #customdogportrait #custompetportrait #petportrait #watercolordog #watwrcolordogportrait #watercolorpetportrait #aplacetolovedogs #ruffpost #dogcorner #dogmilk #mydogist #dogcorner #instadoglover #mustlovedogs #lifeisbetterwithadog #dogsworld

We've been so busy the past few days! Dan finished another beautiful coop, this one replaces the smashed one. We're moving to the Delaware chickens there as we separate into single breed flocks in preparation for hatching season. We've also been busy making sure all the critters are warm and cozy ahead of winter storm Harper. And of course, with lots of snow followed by extremely cold temperatures, we're having a baby boom! Cookie had a beautiful healthy lamb yesterday morning, Belle had a healthy calf in the evening and Twinkle has twin lambs this morning. Pictures to come, I haven't quite had the time to take any good ones! . . . . #pleasantvalleyfarm #smallfarm #familyfarm #homestead #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica #iamamodernfarmer #iamcountryside #countryside #countrylife #mychickencoop #chickensofinsta #chickens #delawarechicken #heritagebreeds #rarebreeds #backyardpoultry #freerange #pennsylvaniaweather #explorepennsylvania #winterstormharper #babieseverywhere
Bijzonder ganzenkop van de Tulagans afkomstig uit Tula in de buurt van Moskou. Mooie foto van @fermergram Deze gans is een echt vechtgans. Ganzengevechten waren erg populair vanaf de Middeleeuwen in Rusland. Deze ijzersterke gans heeft nog steeds een heel pittig karakter. Je kunt het al wel zien aan de robuuste kop. Een waakhond is er niks bij. Zeldzaam in de rest van Europa maar populair bij fokkers in Rusland. #tulagoose #goose #geese #russia #rusland #gans #gänse #geeseofinstagram #geeseofig #rarebreed #rarebreeds

I got to watch this fella grow in an egg for 21 days, hatch and then peel those big black eyes open for the first time. Gosh, what a humbling experience to be a part of!
