YAK TRACKS: Good to be Back on Grass

I spent two hours this afternoon in one of my favorite places.

The little fenced-in pasture on the Loop Road by Mike and Sandy's Yellow Farm Inn.

Got the hoses hooked up, the yak trough filled with water, the temporary fencing and wires installed, and the pasture cleaned up.

In time for the four-leggeds arrival on spring pasture next week.

Good to be back on grass.

Yak to the future.

YAK TRACKS: The Russians are Coming!

We had a whole posse of Muscovites drop into the farm last week - guests of Champlain College in Burlington.

Thanks to my colleague Gary Scudder for the photos.

And could Lady Slipper's new calf be any more cute?

And why is it that all the yak farm kids only turn out to help when we have guests at the farm?

YAK: "The Best Alpine Bovine You'll Ever Eat!"

We couldn't make up a better headline.

Thanks to Atlantic for publishing this story on our farm.

And welcome to our first calf of the spring!
