Chicks, Logging with Horses, and Pasture Management

As we approach week 3 of the summer farm semester, much is happening around the farm, in the forest, and in the gardens; and, of course, in the classroom! Meat birds and turkeys for the kitchen and laying hens for the farm are growing in their brooders, logs are being skidded from the woods to soon be milled into lumber, and pastures are being managed to ensure that our grass will not only last into the fall but that next season's grass will have the best start possible. The last of the transplants have been removed from the greenhouse and are in their beds. 500 bales of first cut hay are in the barn and the next cut awaits a stretch of good drying weather.
