After much waiting we have finally driven up to Mandala Farm in Gouldsboro and picked up a young flock of cashmere goat kids, and let us tell you they are a joy to have! We are currently pasturing them together with our small flock of laying hens and these very curious and adventurous goats quickly took over the chicken coop where the goats and hens now sleep together.
Although it is tough to concentrate on anything else with such cute new additions to the farm we are busy at work tending to the vegetable fields. Yesterday, we had a much needed full day of rain that accomplished more for our fields than we could have ourselves. A nice rainy day is always an enjoyable one for farmers, to sit back, relax, and watch nature do the heavy lifting.
