Thanksgiving @ Rockhill

We had a busy week here at Rockhill. Clara gave birth to twins on Tuesday. Thursday was Thanksgiving, but for Jennifer, Joseph and me that meant milking cows, hauling milk, making cheese, shoveling poop, feeding calves & again, finally milking cows. Joseph had his girlfriend up for a well-planned Thanksgiving meal. But things went south, and lucky for Jen & I, we all got to share a nice meal together late that evening. Saturday, Jen and I enjoyed the company of our daughter and her family. Joseph had his folks up for a visit. And Eve entertained us all by giving birth to a beautiful heifer calf in the early afternoon. All were here to witness the little beauty coming into this world. All-in-all, it was a great Thanksgiving weekend.

Last Chance to Visit the farm

Our annual “Dinner on the Farm” has been canceled for this year. One of the owners of Jack’s Wood Fired Oven is getting married on the 19th, and the rest of the crew at Jack’s will be catering his reception that evening. We had already scheduled another wedding reception here on the evening of the 12th, so that pretty much killed the dinner for this year. But we would like to remind everyone that we will still have our farmstand open for the next three Saturdays from 10 am to 1 pm. We’ve got live music scheduled for each day. And we hope that Eli’s beautiful photo that ran in last week’s Herald Journal will remind everyone that the drive to Cache Valley this time of year is worth every mile! Come up and see the farm and visit the girls of Rockhill.

Another Heifer

Chloe had her calf this morning bright and early. This makes for the 14th heifer out of the last 17 calves born here. Now that’s good luck!
