Early birds and lambs.

Everyone and everything around here just can’t wait for spring, it seems. We’ve had a few arrivals that were earlier than we planned. Well, remember back in September when we found a ewe in with the rams? And then again in October, we caught Deedee in there. So, no surprise, those two have had babies already.

We’ve also got eggs in the incubator, and one lone chick hatched about a week before expected. Well, it’s a rare treat for our guests who stay here in March!

Saying Goodbye to Two Old Friends

Leaping Lamb Farm-2013-097-CG-2415

We had a couple of hard losses on the farm this summer. Tom, our 7 year old Heritage Bronze turkey was starting to decline and he finally reached a point where his quality of life just didn’t overcome his problems any longer. He had a good run, at 7 years old!

Sadly, Goose had such a strong bond with Tom, and we think he was brokenhearted. He followed his best buddy to barnyard heaven a week later, at over 30 years of age.

We will miss these two irascible characters. Farewell, feathered friends…. may there be nothing but sunny pasture wherever you are!

Breaking In – A Story with Pictures

I arrive at the farm and head out to the garden to catch some of that lovely September morning light.

A September morning in the LLF garden.

I hear a noise… oh, the rams are at the gate, trying to get at the purple grapes. Hi rams!

Hi rams!

Wait a minute…

Wait a minute...

WAIT… WHAT…

Wait...

WHAT.

Ear tags: Left for Ladies!

Not. A. Ram.

So… there may be a lamb or two in January. Stay tuned.

 

Leaping Lamb Farm video on Visit Corvallis

We recently worked with Silverman Studios to create a video for the Visit Corvallis website. Here’s the finished result!

Thanks to our guests that day for being good sports and appearing on camera, and thanks to Visit Corvallis for arranging the video!
