Long Night for #9- 4/30/14
I knew yesterday that #9 was about to calve. She had sequestered herself. Sad scene in the morning was to find a rare set of twins- a white heifer and a red bull - apparently still born. I have the extension department researching to see if our heavy diet of carrots might not be part of the problem. Evidently diabetic mothers have large babies because of the extra sugar. We also are seeing the first calf crop from an imported bull who is also suspect.
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
Three Generations- 1987
Four Generations- 1999
The Ralph and Maxine progeny have evolved into a family with international roots that include Korea, Scotland, and India. 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.
