October is already here! The Fall comes so quickly sometimes.
We've been keeping busy here on the farm! We put up more hay for the winter and we've been selling at the Beckley Farm 2 Table market each week since we've had freah lamb in stock. Along with a few markets in Roanoke. Follow our facebook or get on our mailing list to know where we'll be set up next.
A sad farewell
On a sad note we did have to say goodbye to our Border Collie of 12 years Kate at the end of September. She'd been sick for a while and had an inoperable tumor. She was a great farm dog and lived a full and happy dog life as queen dog of the farm!
She'll be buried in our dog graveyard that our kids started for our loyal dogs that have passed.
Usually we get a puppy when its time for a new dog, but, as luck would have it this time, our sheep shearer was fostering this good-looking fellow.
We have decided to name him Roy. A respectable Scottish dog name for a breed that comes from the border of Scotland and England! He's adjusting to his new home on the farm well and will soon start learning more about how to work the sheep.
Have a wonderful October from all of us at Mountain Meadows Farm!
