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.

We have a champion

It’s been a very busy year. So busy, that the blog has sat silent. But today we have something we have to share.  We have a champion!

 

 

MacKenzie Hart did an awesome job at the Fonda Fair with her Texel ewe lamb “Annie Marie”.   Here they are all pretty with ribbons (Annie Marie is the one on the left). Kenzie worked hard with Annie Marie to make sure that she looked her best. Our lambs are born later than a lot of fair animals because we focus on grass-feeding as our prime objective. Annie Marie is a twin born on our farm to one of our two-year old Texels in late April.  So Annie Marie is small – but perfectly formed. MacKenzie did well showing her.   We expect that next year Annie Marie will continue her winning ways and blow the doors off of the ewe lambs she shows against.  

Congratulations MacKenzie!
