What's Up at WRLG
FROM THE FARMERS POINT OF VIEW
January has arrived and the cold weather and wind are back. Along with the wind the farm has a new years lamb. The ewe lamb was not born on New Years but in the new year. Her mother is named Tussle and last year she had a still born lamb and was very distressed and kept running back to the place where the lamb had been. But this year she had a healthy ewe lamb and her name is Tangled! Tussle is a very good mother and I will be releasing mother and lamb on Wednesday as it isn't supposed to be as bitter cold. Tuesday we are due to have temperatures well below zero with the wind chill. The new mothers tend to keep their lambs well away from the rest of the flock especially if the area where they eat is too congested. So waiting an extra day to release the ewe and her lamb is a good idea.
The farmers market at the Maple Street school in Contoocook is going every Saturday from 9-12 noon (Masks are required). I have more eggs to sell now that the sexy girls are laying . So come on down to the market and see what your local farmers and artisans have to offer!
