Today is December 23 and it was clear and I had a chance to document the actual sunshine. The sun came out from behind Pioneer Peak at 12:20. It ducked behind different peaks in the Chugach range until it finally set at a little before 3 PM. Actual sunshine was less than two hours.
Found #45 White cow with red points away from the herd and less than 24 hours dead today 12/17/13. No broken bones. Was in good health Friday when they were found "out". Perhaps ate something bad but no one else is hurting apart from being nearly twenty below zero. Her first calf was weaned and is doing fine. Incision on the shoulder is something I have never seen before. Is this how cattle mutilation by aliens happens???
The driveway to the farm is almost hidden so we solved that problem by planting a 24 foot carrot at the entrance. You can learn more about Wolverine Farm at www.wolverinefarm.com

In like fashion, the products of Wolverine Farm have expanded from potatoes and dairy to carrots, beef, eggs, berries and a broad spectrum of products. It has morphed from a sole proprietorship to an umbrella that covers a variety of businesses that market directly, through farmer's markets, and through commercial outlets.
