We are no longer waiting for goat babies. They are here. 14 of them. And they came all at once. We were crossing our fingers and hoping that the pregnant does would hold off during that last cold spell we had, with

temperatures at night in the low 20s. Even though you all up north may snicker, that is very cold for us here in North Florida. Heck, we put on long johns when the temperatures go to the mid- thirties LoL. Well, the does held off having babies and the temperatures warmed up. The first night after the cold spell, the first doe went into labor, and within 24 hours the other four followed suit, some of them at the same time and we had 11 more babies on the ground. Usually pretty coordinated in my office attire, I went to work the following day with black boots, blue tights and a brown dress, backwards no less.

Speaking of office. My husband and I work full time to support the farm financially. It is a myth and lie if someone tells you that nowadays a family farm can be financially sustainable without outside income. That is just not happening. Just yesterday we had a $300 bill for brake work on a car and $600 for a vet bill which included a dog with a broken leg and several medications. These are not expenses either that you can choose to pay. Both are life safety and have to be paid.
Nevertheless, my husband and I are the eternal optimists and therefore always looking for ways to make the farm more financially sustainable so that maybe, maybe some time down the road, we can work on the farm full time. We will explore those ideas in another blog, but here is one that we have implemented as of January 1. We have opened the farm up to the Public!
