Carversville Farm Round Up: February 9

BABY GOATS ARE COMING IN MID-APRIL!

This week, we had our good friends at Quakertown Veterinary Clinic come and examine our goats to confirm if any are pregnant.  After performing ultrasounds on 20 goats, we found we have a 90% conception rate so far, there a couple that may be pregnant just not as far along as the other ladies!  We were not able to tell how many each girl was carrying (typically it will be just one, sometimes twins) but we do know they are in good health.  We are already counting down the days to one of our most favorite times of year at the farm!

2018 APPRENTICESHIP APPLICATIONs are OPEN

This spring we are looking forward to a whole new troop of apprentices.  Apprentices have the opportunity to focus on different enterprises on the farm: veggies, field cropping, livestock and dairy/cheese making.  For more details and to apply, see the careers section of our website.
