Uncle

Hey there. Long time no write. Yeah…well…been working hard, trying to find some sleep, enjoying the presence of someone new, beautiful and profound in my life, and also just riding the post-solstice, post-peak, post-energy of the summer phase (for me) as I navigate and look toward the fall, winter, next year, and beyond. The obviousContinue reading “Uncle”

Riley and Fletcher

Hi everyone and hope you are well! Just following up with some words and pics on the two pups that remain from Chloe’s litter–Riley and Fletcher.  They’re doing great and have now joined me on the simpler chores of the farm–typically filling water for poultry and sheep.  They still nurse a bit but have shownContinue reading “Riley and Fletcher”

The Rising

Good morning everyone– A quick but likely verbose note before heading into today’s market. A teary-eyed (after she left…) and fond farewell yesterday to Keeley (below) as she left for her new home.  Four other pups appear sold (two possibly leaving today and two over the next week) which leaves three looking for homes.  AllContinue reading “The Rising”

Chloe’s 2018 Pups

Okay–FINALLY–getting to posting these pics that were taken earlier in the week of Chloe’s eight pups.  So sorry–and thank you all for your patience. The reason there are multiple pics of Riley, Brady and Fletcher is–honestly–they look so similar and their differentiations are in such odd spots that I and others are still kinda trainingContinue reading “Chloe’s 2018 Pups”

Morganic Farm post for Week 20

Hey all–FINALLY trying to get caught up on events and news of the farm. First up–yes, Yuli (the last remaining pup) DID find a wonderful home. Next up–Chloe is pregnant.  She came into heat late and I considered all of the candidates for a home for Rosie’s pups who did not get one–so I putContinue reading “Morganic Farm post for Week 20”

Radical Simplicity Part Deux: Selling My Pigs

I have decided to sell off all of my Mulefoot/Hereford cross pigs.  This includes pregnant sows, gilts and boars.  The price for pregnant sows is $400.  The price for gilts and boars is $300.  All of the pigs are in the wight range of 175 to 225 pounds.  They have lived outside their entire lives. Continue reading “Radical Simplicity Part Deux: Selling My Pigs”

Radical Simplicity: Laying hens and roosters for sale

As I announced on the farm’s and my FB pages I am selling my flock of laying hens.  I don’t expect this to happen quickly but it will happen.  I have decided to narrow my farm focus on first–my dogs–and second and beyond all animals that I deem a good relationship and responsibility for them. Continue reading “Radical Simplicity: Laying hens and roosters for sale”

Puppy introductions

The puppies (four female and two male) will be five weeks old tomorrow and that means they start to get blended puppy food, eggs and thawed livestock organs for the first time along with continuing to nurse. I tried to get some pics (unassisted) and this proved to be a folly.  They were in nursingContinue reading “Puppy introductions”

Christmas trees available

Well, though it is long past the time many folks get their Christmas trees I do have them available.  I cut three Norway and three Blue Spruce trees this weekend and have them available–$10 at the farm and $15 delivered into Traverse City (or nearby/in between).  Probably be great–so as to maximize the vibe ofContinue reading “Christmas trees available”

How to order a whole or half hog from Morganic Farm (pigs going in Oct 12)

Well…it’s the eve of the last month of the 2017 Sara Hardy Farmers Market.  Just eight more markets for this season.  Eggs are ready to go–just have to package up the last of them and get to bed. They’re calling for rain tomorrow morning between about 1am and 7am in TC–a little later out here. Continue reading “How to order a whole or half hog from Morganic Farm (pigs going in Oct 12)”
