2022 will be our last year of calving with our Irish Dexters. It has been a wonderful sixteen years. Our bull will soon be headed to a new farm and our geriatric girls will “retire” after weaning these last calves.
Calves will be posted after they are born, which can begin after Mother’s Day. Let us know if you are interested and we will reserve your calf until weaning, usually in 5-6 months.
Did you know that SteelMeadow’s podcast, Blind Hog and Acorn, is already into the third season? What started out as a solo podcast by Mary Jane, aka The Acorn, quickly morphed into a weekly rehashing of farm chores with Glenn, the Blind Hog.
Join the two farmers weekly as they retell what went wrong and what went right at SteelMeadow Farm. New podcasts drop every Sunday morning. Click here and sign up!
Seven weeks of collecting sap from black walnut trees in the yard has netted us over 2 gallons of finished syrup. Dark, delicious and with such depth of flavor! The sap run is slowing, what sap collected is getting a little cloudy, and the trees are popping their buds. Time to stop!
If you have black walnut trees in your yard, consider tapping the trees next year and produce your own syrup!
