Anyone who farms will tell you. The list of chores is endless. On the list right now, on top of daily herd maintenance:
TO DO: Get the hay in (if the durn rain would stop for even 24 hours); brushhog the fields; cut fence line grass and burdocks; test the headgate; tag the new yaks; emasculate the bull calves; prepare for "Taste of the Valley" event on August 4...
But what fun, especially when you can farm with your neighbors and friends.
Here's a few video vignettes for you of summer on the farm:
Ted, Kate and Nick test our new head gate (big shout out to Dave and Ted for spearheading this project):
Bottle feeding the yak calves (yak milk maidens are indeed a glorious sight):
And we finally got our Vermont Yak Company sign posted up on Route 100 (Big shout out to Susan for painting the sign - a woman of many talents) - look for the "Local First" white flag and Dave's red "Hartshorn Farm Stand" sign, too.
