News from the Farm: Sheep!

It just got a little woolier around the Hometown Harvest Farm this week, thanks to our newest arrivals.  

This group of six Southdown sheep males will spend the summer grazing our pasture, soaking up healthy nutrients from the grass and clearing the way for the chickens to follow behind in the rotation. 

   

 In the fall, we hope to be able to offer a limited amount of the grass-fed meat, and we know the chickens will appreciate having their pasture cleared for the summer. 

Did somebody say “chickens”?

  They always love to say hello!
