On the Farm

"Life" makes for a busy Life:
Spring is wonderful on the farm for many reasons. Not the least of which is that we are surrounded by so much life.  From the awakening of the pastures and forests after a dormant winter to the annual anticipated arrival of the Martins that we are blessed to have in abundance. Our farm tends to mirror the natural world, so spring also brings green pastures, baby pigs, baby chicks, baby calves, and now the corn is starting to pop out of the ground.  We consider ourselves fortunate to be able to live and work among all this life.  As farmers, what we do is manage living things. As a result, it's time I get busy cutting hay, tending corn,and taking care of baby animals. I will be posting pictures of our spring duties as we make it through the season.

Thanks for your continued support. At Carlton Farms we are proud to be your farmer.
