2021 Lambing So Far

Way back in early November, we put our breeding ram Limerick in with eight girlfriends. Seven Jacob girls, and one Romeldale kept him busy for some time.

Bartering in the Apocalypse

Since Coronavirus hit the United States, many folks have been forced out of work, or are working much less than they were before. We still have friends and customers who want to feed their family quality food, and who want to support us.

First up, on April 12, Janus gave birth unassisted to a two horn ewe named Vienna, sired byContinue reading “The Lambs Have Arrived!”

Unfortunately, that’s not the way life goes on the farm, and we lost oneContinue reading “Ushering in a New Year with Ups and Downs”

Our Goals for 2020

Finding inspiration from a bunch of other blogs, we decided to work on an “Uberlist” for Frontière Farm House.

New Beginnings: Life And Death On The Farm

As of March 31st, I quit my off-farm job, in order to pursue farming full time. Robert is still working as an engineer full time, and he is enjoying his job. But with the way things have been growing at home, we figured having me available more often would be best for the business, andContinue reading “New Beginnings: Life And Death On The Farm”
