We are trying something different this season. We will offer our poultry through a CSA (community supported agriculture). This one is more like a club though than the traditional CSA models. There will be substantial savings to members with the added benefit of securing your holiday turkey or goose early.
Today we had a nice visit to the Mitchell’s Ranch (http://www.mitchellsranch.com/). They have a beautiful ranch with a collection of exotic animals that will thrill you and best yet, they are all petable (sure that’s a real word). That’s what the Mitchells do, they share their animals with those who benefit from their charms, andContinue reading “Mitchell’s Ranch”
Cota inspects a couple lamb fur carpets. We have had requests for larger lamb furs and so we will have a few for the upcoming market season. We are considering even larger coverings should sales be favorable. I have been envisioning a bedspread; what a marvelous gift it would make.
Angie models one of our new products, Lambskin Hats. This is a ladies hat, fashioned after the popular Russian hats. There will be a mans hat as well. Each Jacob Lambskin hat is a one of a kind creation, custom tailored, all natural, no dyes.
One new thing that we at Cota Farms are excited about is our wildlife/wetland reserve. We are working on putting 10 acres into one of the Dept. of Agriculture’s conservation programs. This would be a permanent easement which we would improve with prairie grasses and waterways. We would also add a path or trail throughContinue reading “Wetland/Wildlife Reserve”
A couple days ago we were out struggling with feeding the animals. We were feeding the geese and ducks and noticed Khan was playing with something in the snow. We have learned that this is something to not just ignore. So Angie goes after him and he has a baby duck. He had found thisContinue reading “Ducklings in the Snow”
We already have our first rescue dogs. Two pups, yorkie-poos, male and female. We have a new home for them lined-up. These are very nice dogs and will bring lots of joy to their new mistress, Angie’s mom.
Well, we already have a bottle lamb and we are not even half way thru lambing season. Bottle fed babies are a problem. They require care and attention that is normally given by the mother but sometimes she will reject her baby. There is usually a good reason why she does this even though itContinue reading “Bottle Lambs”
Cota Farms offers private respite and rescue services for animals that are important to you. We are not a kennel, day care, or camp. Sometimes you may need to travel where your pet can’t go and you don’t want to leave them in a kennel because they have special needs or you must be awayContinue reading “Private Respite and Rescue Services”
Cota Farms will be accepting credit/debit cards this season at the Clintonville Farmers Market and wherever else you choose to do business with us including internet orders and deposits. No more PayPal; I think they are not as good an online business solution as I once thought. We still do not have a shopping cartContinue reading “Credit/Debit Cards Now Accepted”
