Clean Up Day.

Alex fired up the chainsaw today to tackle more limbs down  from recent storms. It has been a hot, humid and stormy summer with clean up nearly every weekend! With limbs down on fences, canopies in knots, flash flooding and more...we've seen it all. But with a touch of humor, the Hiday guys get to the extra work and carry on!

Cattle Chores

Today is another cattle chore day. Last Friday we sorted several of the beeves that are going to butchered this fall.(They look great). We moved them to the field north of the house. We took one cutting of hay off this field in June and now it is full of good fresh clover and grass to fatten the cattle on. As usual, a couple of them broke through the fence to get back with the cows. So today Aaron and I fixed fence and Adam, Aaron and I resorted the cattle.

PORK buyers, we will be sending the pigs to the processor in the next few days. We will be calling soon with pick up times.

Cattle Day.

Farmer Dan was up in the wee hours monitoring storm assessment. Looks like more interesting weather on tap for this afternoon, so a busy morning ahead. The to-do list for today includes pulling weeds, fixing fences and moving cattle to new pasture. Separating the steer going to be processed this fall from their mommas. Ought to be a lively afternoon!

Pastured Pork.

The pigs, (as well as all livestock here) at Hiday Farm, have lush pasture to wander about in; to eat and root around as nature intended. With freedom to frolic, stretch out, wallow in a mud puddle or take a snooze in the shade of a tree, they busy their days doing things that pigs were meant to do. We feel this makes for a healthier animal which translates to a quality meat product we are proud to provide for our customers.

Why DId the Chicken Cross the Driveway?

Well, actually, the hen isn't crossing, she is stalled and holding up traffic. One must not rush she who lays the farm fresh egg. In time, she will move along. In the meantime, the driver calls for Farmer Dan!
