Tree Planting.

Saturday March 31st we will be beginning our reforestation program at Camp Brotherhood.  We are looking for volunteers that will help us plant 400 trees in one day.  Our ultimate goal is to plant over 2000 trees.  We will begin at 9 a.m. and will provide lunch at 12:00.  Please RSVP by Tuesday the 27th so we can order food.  You can make a difference.

Thanks for your time,

Molly, I have been picking people's brains about raising pigs, since we may or may not this year on our farm. What people tell me is that feeding them is the most time and money intensive part of pig raising, most ended up driving to several farms and/or grocery stores every day to pick up leftover produce. We have been researching planting fodder crops (such as turnips, beets, rutabegas, kale, etc) and if you have enough space and moveable or electric fencing, you could let those crops grow and then run the pigs through them. Pigs LOVE to dig up roots and eat them. Also... author Joel Salatin writes a lot about raising pigs and using them for many farming tasks (ie: turning compost, sealing ponds) so I would recommend his books-- some of them available at our county library system.

I might come get that fridge from you this week!  If you could email me your address and/or phone #, my email is chrisandbella@yahoo, and my phone is 961-9028. Thanks so much!

Does anyone have an omega or champion juicer that they have used to make nut butter with or to grind flour with? I have read that these masceration  type of juicers also grind. Before I buy one I'd like to know how well they work for grinding nuts or grains. I know they are good for juicing.

Also I'd be interested in borrowing an omega or champion juicer for a week to make juice. Can anyone loan me one?

Thanks,

Angela

Hi Chris we have a frig you could have it is old but works. I have no way to get it to you. veggies or eggs would be nice but not required. We are in the Laural district. Tell me what you think

Comment by Chris Wolf on March 10, 2012 at 11:14am

Hello friends... There are several things we need as we are starting our small farm business here at Riverhaven: (1) A refrigerator for storing eggs, (2) A 10x10 foot collapsable canopy for using at the Lynden Farmer's Market, and (3) Some long collapsable tables for setting up at the farmer's market. We would appreciate donations of these items to support our new local farm, or could trade you veggies and pastured eggs, and/or some cash if you require that. Thanks! -Chris Wolf and Krista Rome

Looks like the coops have been "adopted", much to the delight of the person who unwillingly inherited them!
