The spring peepers are in full chorus in the wetland and the air smells fresh. The black flies are officially out and all this means spring is finally in full swing here in central Maine.
Like much of the country we've indeed had a wet spring. This has prevented us from getting out in the pastures to harrow and over seed. Planting in the garden has been delayed as well but slowly and surely it's all gettin done. The cattle are ready to graze and today we could finally let them into an early season pasture. While the other pastures continue to rest and grow adequately for the sake of plant health,the cattle can get their early season grazing fix and finish up eating bales. The chicks are being let out to forage on nice days and are already learning to commingle with the cattle...right where they should be! We like to get them out free ranging as soon as possible.
We're grateful that mud season is pretty much over and we can get into our warm weather routine here on the ranch. Certainly for us, warmer weather means grilling out more and we got you covered there. Give us a call or email us if you need any grassfed beef for your party, gathering or family dinner. We currently have quarter pound patties, lean ground, and premium steaks available.
