Judy's Dutch Barn Farm Blog

Book recommendations

When we're not weeding or feeding we spend our free time reading about beginner farmers, farming, and food and history.

Written by the chef of Blue Hill at Sone Barns, The Third Plate looks at what we're eating and what it all means.  Dan Barber comments on food by looking at the farming that brings it to his kitchen.

This is a series of essays on farming philosophy and sustainability.  This collection of works is base on Mr Kirschenmann's experiences on his North Dakata farm.

Farms with a Future is a how-to guide for the beginner small farmer.  Rebecca Thistlethwaite has put together important perspectives from farm owners and managers accross the country to bring home lessons all focused on sustainability.

Recipes

Here are some of my favorite recipes.  Needless to say, they're all better with fresh, local ingredients.

If you're a fan of lamb then you can find a lot more recipes on the fans of lamb web site.

Mary had a little lamb...

Posted by Marc Kratzschmar on Thursday, May 2, 2013 Under: Sheep

Well, if we had a sheep named Mary, there would be a very good chance that she would have a little lamb – or  two - by now.  We are in the thick of lambing for 2013.  Over 25 lambs have been born during the past five days.  Almost every ewe has had twins. So far, so good!

The sheep go outside every day now. It is pure joy to see the lambs gambolling in the grass. Come on by if you need to know that all is right with the world.
