Birch Hollow Farm  We have a herd of small, friendly and manageable cows and calves that make great animals for anyone to raise their own beef. We also sell custom beef.

Swallows gathering around the house and barns. We have never had a flying insect problem here and I know these guys are a big reason why. They can each eat 850 bugs per day or 25,000 per month. 100 swallows can eat 2.5 million insects per month. Combine that with bats that hunt the same way all night and bugs don't stand a chance...bat population has dropped off alot due to a white nose fungus that kills cave and cavity dwelling bats like Little Brown Bat aka Myotis lucifugus

Lucy doesn't want sunblock on. She just wants to be in the water. She gets a little too deep but laughs it off. Thinks Pop will save her...

Lucy and cousin Mairyn at the lake aka "crazy kayaking cousins". Lucy would rather watch Mairyn than steer the boat. No paddles needed, this kayak is Nonna powered...

For all my artist friends...Was invited to an amazing House Concert by @walt_wilkins a truly gifted singer songwriter from Austin. Our friends Tom and Bunny from the lake have known Walt for a few years. This song "Painter by the Lake" is on his new album Streetlight.
Check out the whole album. It's worth it just for this song...

Pheasants have been in flight pen for 2 weeks. They are devouring all the greenery. In another few weeks it will be nothing but stems. They will be 10 weeks old Monday. Halfway to full grown and fully colored.

Lucy on an adventure in the corn. She had been a little nervous once she got in a few rows but yesterday she was better. A different kind of children of the corn.
Maybelline came along for the "barn cat thinks she's a dog" walk...
