They are extremely tame. They make great farm pets. They are funny and always interesting. They are trained to come in at night and free range on the farm during the day. The females are very loud; the males are very quiet and only make a rasping sound rather than a quack.
Our Border Collie, Biscuit, is in the background of the picture.
We do have ducks for sale.
We have three White Broad Breasted Turkeys, Lightning, Stormy, and are new addition Rain. They have been pardoned and are just pets. They are incredibly friendly, especially Lighting, the tom , who immediately puffs up and struts for us whenever he sees us . It has now become a game to see how may times we can get him to gobble.
Rebecca raises pigs for 4-H. She showed her two homebred Hampshire/Bluebutt crosses. This is Rosie, smiling after her bath.
Thank you so much to Meshoppen Stone, Northeast Machinery Network, and Stepniak's Beef for buying Rebecca's hogs at the Wyoming County Fair.
New to our farm . We are raising 12 chicks (all hens). They are 6 Barred Rock and 6 ISA Brown. They are already a lot bigger than in this picture. They grow fast!
We have some Herefords that we raise for beef. They free range on the farm . We love to watch the babies run and play.
We currently have 9 hives that produce about 300 lbs of honey each year.
Our Border Collies
We are hatching Pilgrim Geese as another new addition to our farm. We are hoping they will be great watchdogs as well as pets. Looking for them to hatch on April 28th.
We have two Border Collies that help (or will help) on our farm. Biscuit is an 11 year old Blue Merle female Border Collie. She is still full of energy even at her age. She is not really happy about Nova though. Nova is our new 11 week old Black & White female Border Collie puppy. She already has "the eye" and we have high hopes for her helping Biscuit on the farm.
