GlenHaven Farm – brought to you by the letter G! G for GlenHaven, G for God, G for green pastures and great animals. Gee it’s gosh darn hot outside so pass the sweet tea and take few minutes to chat! Just when you think you can’t take another day of heat and humidity, (I liken it to roasting a wet sponge), God sends the rain! Hallelujah – it happened this morning and today, G is for glorious!
We’ve got two very pregnant cows scheduled to deliver any day now. My plan was for them to be pregnant at separate times of the year, not at the same time – somehow they didn’t get that memo so we’ve had no fresh milk since May! Aaagh – difficult for us raw milk addicts around here! So, for them G is for get on with it, already!
G is also for goats, more specifically, Nigerian Dwarf goats! Their chief job around here is to prove no fence can stand against their escape tactics and then to climb on your lap so you can’t be mad at them! They’re very affectionate and nothing brings comfort like a 10 goat cuddle as the day wanes into night!
But the best part of the letter G is the great workers we have around here – running a farm like this is definitely a group effort, each person doing their part and we appreciate all they do!
I could GO on and on (see what I did there?) but I will go ahead and save some G words for another post.
