Just before returning the boom lift, I thought it a good idea to take one last photo from 70’ above the Farm. Make it a panorama!

This last week we rented a 65’ boom lift to take down some 80’ willows that we’re threatening our newly remodeled dairy barn. Fully extended, leaning out with a chainsaw falling heavy timber with 30 mph winds was a combination of terror and almost losing control of bodily functions, but we all survived. It also gave us a chance to repaint the gable end of the hay barn from red to green and get a good look at the condition of the silo we hope to remodel into a guest house. #greenbowfarmmove #masonjerseydairy

For tonight’s grill: @greenbowfarm pasture raised chicken with Peri-Peri sauce from Lesedi, @greenbowfarm pasture raised pork sausage, @greenbowfarm grass fed beef steaks and grilled torpeo onion from @whistlingtrainfarm. #eatlikeyourfarmer #knowyourfarmer #pastureraised

Moved piggies to their planted forage patch. Sunflowers, turnips, beets and of course weeds. Yum yum! #pastureraisedpork #pastureraised #pastureraisedpigs

I’m not much for shaving dogs but Baker needed it. This poor guy has some unfortunate fur that mattes every year and the cheat grass situation is pretty morbid this year. All the dogs had to have cheat grass removed from somewhere (toes, ears, chest) but Baker is a bit aggressive when he’s uncomfortable so I took him the our vet where we sedated him and took care of his cheat grass wounds and while he was out, shaved him free of fur mattes. Under the fur was dozens of cheatgrass seeds, each one with its own agony. After he came to and we were back at the farm, he was following me around looking for cuddles. Now I can’t shake the guy. He must have really appreciated the freedom and relief. I’m still going over him with tweezers when he sidles up. #greenbowfarmdogs

Welded an old tow hitch I found in the bushes on the underside of the first trailer so I could hook up the second and get 54 bales to the barn at a time. The slef propelling, unmanned tractor is fully OSHA approved.

Making hay while the sunshines and gaining some skill while we’re at it. #greenbowfarmboys
