NHF commented on Little Seed Farm's blog post Bread Baking That Fits Into a Farmer’s Schedule
"This is a great book and method!  I started using this after being too intimidated by "real" bread making.  After just a couple of months I had learned so much about bread that I tackled a real recipe and began making fully…"

NHF commented on Earth School's blog post Jewelweed and Poison Ivy - "A Perfect Pair"
"I love this story and it made me feel proud too!  I've always wondered why I've never found either poison ivy or jewel weed around our farm.  Maybe it's because the land is happy.   Can you write a blog about passion…"

NHF replied to Molly Linville's discussion conditioning hay
"Like you, I use a mower/conditioner (Haybine). However, most people around here don't, opting for disc mowers instead. Sometimes they ted the hay, sometimes they don't. If you don't have moisture I'd sure think you could do it…"

Strawberry Fruit Leathers

"These plastic trays came with the dehydrator but they are very shallow, so I bet you could use wax paper and just don't put so much puree in so that it doesn't run off the sides.  Or maybe you could drain your puree a bit to make it…"

Strawberry Fruit Leathers

"That is awesome...did you adapt something to hold the juice in or does that piece come with the dehydrator?  It is hard to tell from the picture how deep the juice is in the circular pan."

NHF replied to Richard Biggins's discussion Turkey poult leg problem
"I'm so sorry.  They are so fragile and there are many opportunities for things to go wrong.  We should realize what a miracle life is and celebrate the fact that it is ever a success.  "

NHF replied to Richard Biggins's discussion Turkey poult leg problem
"Last year we had one hatch that produced two poults that sound similar.  The first two days or so they appeared hopeless and couldn't stand.  Somehow they got stronger and their legs became fine quickly.  I'm still not sure…"

Farm Auctions

Posted on December 13, 2011 at 10:00am 2 Comments

One of the things I look forward to every few months is attending local farm auctions.  When we moved to the country several years ago, I first attended these events as an outsider...a greenhorn who knew not a bushog from a disc harrow, a golf cart from a Gator or a band saw from a table saw.  Shoulda, woulda, coulda learned those things earlier in life, but didn't, and so the auction was a new and exciting kind of place for me, sort of like a yard sale of anything to do with farming,…

I'm looking into keeping uncastrated pigs for meat. At what age do you butcher yours? Have you ever had a problem with boar taint? and I understand you seperate males and females, why? Any advice would be helpful.
