On the Farm

Hay Making Time:
When the garden is plentiful, you store that bounty for the winter.  Well the same concept works for the hay field. The pasture grass grows like crazy in the springtime. We know that the grass will struggle in the winter, and some years it also struggles mightily in the hot dry summer. So we follow the old adage "make hay while the sun shines".  We have a limited time to harvest the grass while it is lush and tender. If we wait to long, it will be tough and not very nutritious. So when the grass is right and there are several sunny days forecasted, we will spend long days making hay. 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.
