2) Garden clean out – when the garden settles down, we let the chickens go into the garden and dig around. This lets them get any yummy leftovers as well as to eat any yucky bugs we don’t want around next season. Additionally, letting the chickens in the garden helps to turn the soil up.
3) Goat Breeding – our girls have been in milk since January & March, so their production is slowing up and it is time to breed them again. We are breeding in September and October so that we won’t be milking in the dead cold of the winter. Also, we feel that since we will be selling the kids we want them to be available at a time when the rest of the farm profits are low in order to get some revenue coming in.
4) Fixing/Building/Cleaning – now that the weather is nicer (and before the winter sets in), we start working outside more. Think about getting coops, stalls and other outside structures cleaned and fixed up. So, all those projects you put off for the summer, it’s time to dive in! We will be building an addition to the goat stall, fixing some coops that need new siding and doing a deep clean on the goat stall and chicken coops.
