Here we go...

As of today, we've started lambing in earnest!  Yola, our East Friesian dairy ewe, had 4 (that's right, 4) lambs this morning - one more and we'd have a basketball team!  At Doty Ravine, where the bulk of our ewes will lamb, we had 3 sets of twins and a single.  The next 6 weeks will be filled with new life!

We're also welcoming Alice, our newest intern, to the farm.  Alice has interned at a dairy goat operation in Oregon, so she comes to us with experience in taking care of small ruminants.  Come say hello at the farmer's market!
