Signs of Spring

Here on Rocky Ridge Beef Farm, we have sighted some exciting signs of spring!! The snow is just about gone and we have found some daffodils poking up through the ground!
We are very excited to announce that Patricks cow 'Pwggette' has given birth to her first calf, named 'Preston', on Saturday, March 26,2011. Both Mother and Son are doing very well. 'Preston' is a very handsome, bouncy calf, who enjoys eating, sleeping in the sun, and bouncing around in his pen.

Visitors are welcome to come and see him anytime that the farmstand is open. Please check back here often as we are expecting several more calves this spring, and we will do our best to keep this blog updated with the latest pictures of our newest arrivals.

Happy Spring!!!!

Our Own Newly Processed Beef, Pork, and Veal Has Arrived!!!!

Just in time for spring!!

Today we picked up some newly processed beef and roseveal. Mom and Peter drove all the way to Goffstown, NH, and since they didn't get lost once, they made it in just 2 hours! After another 2 hour drive back home they surprised the rest of us by arriving  home much earlier than we all had anticipated. After all the boxes were brought in ,(thanks to Dad) we were all able to pitch in and help with the inventory and organization process.

In other news........

Patrick's cow Peppy gave birth to her third calf, a cute, friendly, bull named Pwggington, on Christmas Morning. He is doing very well and enjoys visiting with the other cows, napping, as well as eating and growing-now weighing in at around 200 lbs.

The snow is finally melting!!!!!!  And we are preparing ourselves for what we call 'mudseason' , otherwise known as spring. We have already spotted some tulips poking up through the ground, and are looking forward to seeing more and more as the weather warms up and more of the snow melts. Since we are on the north side of a hill, we usually have snow on the ground longer than our neighbors.

We received 10 chicks recently and they are growing fast!!!

Please stop by and visit our farmstore when you are in the area. It is open Mon-Sat. 9am-6pm.
